While networking helps you meet people you need to know, it is relationships that make business both profitable and personally rewarding. How to stay in regular contact with your business friends: Schedule regular meetings and/or telephone calls with key professional friends either monthly or quarterly.
The best part: No agenda. Just chat and catch up.
The bonus: Since I’ve started scheduling phone calls with my business (and personal) friends, I’ve expanded my business connections and deepened my personal relationships.
Work hard. Make money. Have fun.
