I left feeling warm and connected to people I respect, and have missed. And, I walked away feeling secure within the herd.
For me there are two really good reasons for building a network of business relationships:
- Relationships create opportunity -- We need relationships to find referrals, to locate mentors, to learn and to grow. The more people we know the better we're connected to our own purpose.
- Relationships create safety -- Feeling like we belong and are part of something is often the difference between success and failure. As a herding species we revel in knowing we have a place among many.
So, do you belong or are you out there all alone?
