    How Do You Spend Your Networking Money?
    How Do You Spend Your Networking Money?It is widely recognized that in networking you give first and receive later. Essentially that would make all givers to begin with and make for a lot of givers out there in general and especially since it’s not just about giving once, but giving...

    Your idea is more fleshed out than the network I am currently a part of. I host a weekly, virtual networking meeting for professionals and have found it to be valuable in terms of: exposure for my business, meeting varied professionals from around the world, learning something new (usually a presenter is at the start of the meeting for up to 30 minutes, followed by Q&A of those present), and have connected with everyone on various social media platforms. Continued exposure combined with actively sharing things I think my network would find useful has resulted in referrals given to me and my giving referrals to others. The site isn't a marketplace, as such, though the owner is building a training area (offering online courses from hosts and others) and has a membership option. If you're interested in learning more and joining us for a meeting this week (or simply want to learn more) you can here: http://networklivevirtually.com/charlene-burke

    In theory this is a really interesting idea @Anders Liu-Lindberg. I personally used oDesk to outsource some odd jobs that I needed done and the results were great. The idea of essentially being able to visit a net workers guild of sorts and request the sort of things you mentioned above really appeals to me. However, I'm not sure how a CEO would feel suddenly having an influx of meetings set up that someone else in the company had made a profit on..

    #4 Thanks, James! At least it's in the spirit of sharing economy and more people to people bypassing companies or commercial market place altogether.

    I've had good experiences of BNI meetings face to face, I wonder if they have looked at doing it online?

    I definitely find it hard to find networking places, if there's an idea or startup or organization that will facilitate this to entrepreneurs I think it would be a terrific idea. Great share @Anders Liu-Lindberg

    #2 You are absolutely right, and lifting others up is the way to make anyone's day! As a Leader or Chief of a Department, I didn't need to go out of my way to do that, as it came quite naturally to me. But as I was relocating and the Department gave me a Surprise Party, I was so touched that every single person in the Department pitched in to buy gifts that I still use today. While they may remember me as a "good boss," I still look at their gifts and think of all of them so fondly. For they also touched me.

    Well, I would have thought this was a great collaborative idea even if I hadn't liked any of your points. Seems fitting to add that I did, in fact, like the points you made.

    Four candles? Clean language and SF - goals, outcomes, resolutions or differences sought?

    Absolutely - a communication begins with an outcome in mind, in order to achieve that outcome the communicator must find the best way to not only deliver the message but also retain ownership of the conversation generated until the outcome is achieved (otherwise the communication may be a waste of time for both sender/receiver)
    James Smith

    This post reminded me of this question: Is the understanding of the message responsibility of the listener or of the person communicating it? I've always found that it'll be the communicator's responsibility to confirm that the message he wants to communicate is received and understand.
