    Scott,
    My clients echo your comments regularly. It all comes down to how people think about networking. Those that approach it from a relational perspective react with horror at the spamming that goes on, which (in my opinion) comes from people that think networking is transactional and can't understand why you object to their approach. Those who really want to connect pay it forward with no expectations of tit for tat rewards.

    @Gerald Hecht, I did not have any problem with the link. Here is what I said:

    "A couple of decades ago, I read about a semi-secret retreat/conference of CEOs and Chairmen of a number of transnational corporations, the theme of which was that within a few decades giant transnational corporations would replace nation-states as the basic units of global economic and political division. If Zuckerberg and others in similar positions aren't directly aware of that conference, they are nevertheless walking down the same arrogant intellectual path and need a good smack in the back of their heads."

    We are all here for the relationships. With others, within groups. We are dating everyone, the hope vs hope, the war of acceptance and the desire to be understood. Social media is just advertising with out the relationships. If your bored with social media, stop being so boring.

    Herkle moment " did I say that "

    Every one enjoys a good read. Not about your success's. What you over came, strive for and how you grew with in your self to get there.
    Be vulnerable, be courageous and finish with your chambers empty not holstered playing it safe.

    The only tragedy in life is regret and when we become mature and pass on our stories the only part nobody wants to say or hear is what if.

    wish you well, tip's hat

    Um, not my experience. They only want hear your story if it is drowned in happy cat memes and ends in rainbow sparklefest of jazz hands and flash-mob sing alongs. They will even tolerate a good train wreck - as long as you don't park it on their front lawn with a defiant "I told you so". Life is pain, anybody that says different is trying to sell you something (Princess Bride attribution) PS even if the cat memes appear - it doesnt guarantee more than a 6 second glance and a meh for the effort.

    Agree and disagree. I don't want to hear about one success, I love to hear one's testimonies. They are inspiring. What every their goals are. If their battle was something physical, mental, or even a spiritual battle, I love to hear them. These stories bring bright Hope to those in need. I was once like that and I thank those who shared what they overcame with me. I gave me courage when I needed it. So, now I feel when I write, part of my writing is my testimony, to pass on the favor to someone else I have not yet met. My story may be just what they need, just as I did.

    @Phil Friedman said: 'And women, if I may, have an innate tendency to plan too much and too long, which when it comes to starting their own small business, dissipates the energies required to actually pull the trigger.'

    I agree, actually. I think women may be hired-wired to aim for security. If you ever get a chance to see or read the play 'Defending the Caveman', do. Not only is it hilarious, but it contains some serious home truths.

    'Against that, the pre-discussion and planning may be why a higher percentage of women who do start their own businesses succeed than do men.'

    Yep. That might also explain the success of the mom-and-pop-shop combo.

    #17 Perhaps, I am simply inferring what is not there. On the basis of so much BS on social media about starting your own business -- which for too many people seems to me to involve simply starting to blog and offering content for sale. But I commend you for tackling the subject. A more serious suggestion might be to look at the fact that men are truly from Mars and women from Venus. And women, if I may, have an innate tendency to plan too much and too long, which when it comes to starting their own small business, dissipates the energies required to actually pull the trigger. Against that, the pre-discussion and planning may be why a higher percentage of women who do start their own businesses succeed than do men. Just thinking out loud. Thanks and cheers!

    With all due respect, Aleta, I suggest it is a mistake to see owning one's own as an end in itself. One can want to make a living (or get rich) doing something you really enjoy. Or prefer to be completely in charge of one's destiny. Or have any number of other reasons. But simply to own a business should not be one of them. Especially, if you already have a high-paying job, with benefits and retirement pension. And are relatively happy in that position. IMO.

    More than ever, there is no better time than to start a business. Due to the rapid growth in technology, women and men can gain the knowledge, skills, and know-how. There are several online programs, webinars and professional organizations available. SCORE and the Chamber of Commerce are great places to start. Networking must not only be online, but in-person. Just taking small, baby steps is productive, despite feeling fear or rejection. Never get caught up in numbers. Quality is better than quantity. Finding your target audience is much more beneficial than having a large following. It all comes down to the basics and moving slow yet steady to produce the results you desire. Feel the fear and do it anyhow. It's only (FEAR) False Evidence Appearing Real anyway!

    #11 I think one of these days (sooner than not) I need to speak to someone who can possibly guide me with some of my ideas or possibly give me some food for thought, maybe someone else would see something in me I'm not picking up on. It is very frustrating, we could use an extra paycheck lol. My husband is self employed and every year differs due to contracts that waver.

    Oh so much fun with the middle of the night 'thoughts', not sure about you but my mind tends to run races at night. I was thinking of using notepad on my phone to type out some of my thoughts but that requires using that FUN keyboard LOL.

    #8 I really don't think you're alone, @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher. It's the curse of the multi-talented to have trouble deciding which project it would be best to throw their energy into.

    I do that middle-of-the-night thing, too. When I was in school my mother got me into the habit of keeping a notebook on the night stand. Doesn't always work; sometimes I'm too tired to be bothered, but I *have* sometimes made good use of the technique.

    I sure can relate to Grace @Aleta Curry,image and age to name a few. I have too many ideas that float through my brain but Ive never had the coursge to act on them. And, why is it what I perceive as really cool ideas come to me in the middle of the night when I have no one to share them with?! By morning my cluttrred brain may forget what I had in mind. I know self doubt is a major road block for me. I always worked for an organization and stsyed home with my kids for a good piece of time. I focused so much on them I think I forgot to focus on what my needs would be when they left home. I just began to realize the major potential SM offers when I became fsirly active on Linkedin first but it waant until I joined bebee that I realized opportunity awaits us all.

    Interesting article Aleta. In my experience - being 45 and having started two businesses after the age of 40, I think it really depends on the individual. And while I have let nothing hold me back - I would agree that really one of the top reasons other women my age don't do it - is fear. Fear about how will they pay their bills, what happens if they fail, fear about what other people will think, and fear about if they have what it takes to be an entrepreneur.
