Networking is not always my favourite chore but I believe it to be an important aspect of being a a successful business person.
While networking with peers, we can get by by talking mutual benefit.However things become a bit more tricky when the other person is a lot more well off.Seriously wealthy people need not grab every offer that comes their way in the hopes of bettering their lot.They can afford to be picky about who they associate with and on what terms.
I believe authenticity works best.Self made made wealthy people have probably trodden the path we are on and have a better understanding of what we are about than we might be willing to admit even to ourselves.It doesn’t make much sense, under the circumstances,to pretend to be what we are not.And understanding where the other person might be coming from always makes things easier.Often silence is the best choice when you don’t know or don’t really agree.
I think this blog http://stuffrichpeoplelove.com/ is a good place to get an insight into the consumption and lifestyle habits of the very well off.Remember not all wealthy people have an interest in all these things but each of them will have some interest in at least a few of them.Read up and you will avoid the most obvious gaffes and save yourself the blushes.
