Just Thinking Out Loud

Wildly Erratic & Completely Inconsistant

“MORE” & “REAL”

What I am reading: Make Your Contacts Count (Networking Know-How For Business and Career Success) by Anne Baber and Lynne Waymon

Where in the book: page 117

Why I am reading: Learning how to network. Cause believe me, I have no CLUE!

Which quote: “Tell your contacts, straight out, what’s on your Agenda.  Your honesty about your purposes will increase your sense of competence and professionalism.”

How this quote adjusted my thinking:

Before I attend my next networking event, I want to brainstorm a few ideas so I can select from these options preferably to have a solid agenda at the event.

“What can *I* give?”  The “MORE” I can contribute:

“M=Methods”

* How to get involved in social networking

* How to be a part of virtual worlds

* How to start an online University

“O=Opportunities”

* Be an online instructor

* Develop course materials for an online class

* Entrepreneurship in virtual worlds

“R=Resources”

* Rockcliffe University Consortium, Inc.

* “Get Clients Now!” coach, Cristina Favreau

* Linked In

“E=Enthusiasms”

* I attended the IVAA Live Summit. It was so much more than I ever expected!

* Social networking worked for me!

* I participate in a virtual Relay for Life. Raising money for the American Cancer Society is one way I give back to society.

“What do *I* want to get?”  Ways I can “get REAL”

“R=Results”

* Research projects

* additional subscriptions

*

“E=Expertise”

* web site developer

* graphic artist

* animation artist

“A=Access”

* partnership where I am a co-creator of a project

* collaboration where I contribute to a project

*

“L=Leads”

* Blog writers looking for content inspiration

* Book authors looking for facts verified

* Professionals looking for information about an industry
