Networking


wealthymatters.comNetworking 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.

    “And understanding where the other person might be coming from always makes things easier.” This, to me, is the whole point of networking. It’s not just about meeting people and shaking hands, but understanding multiple people and their points of view.

    • True.

  3. silence is a good answer to many things

    • As Lincoln counselled better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

      • that is the theory that I go on and it has served me well

  4. I agree that networking is an important aspect for a successful business. However, what was once considered networking – one business person speaking with another – has since been replaced with what I call the “theory of large numbers” – of which the Socail Networks are the ultimate exponent and example.

    They offer no interpersonal bonds but rely on the theory of large numbers. To an extent that theory will work in the short term. But because they are dependent on volume rather than quality, ultimately they will fail as we realize that there is no basis for a relationship which is the ultimate foundation for a long-lasting relationship.

    • Social networks are OK for establishing initial contact but unless greater personalized interaction is continued on a regular basis,no worthwhile relationship is likely to be formed.

    I have attended a few networking events, though never where the rich attend.

    • Well think about meeting these people in a club…….a charity event,art/culture event,political event.

        Will do, thanks for the advice.
