Tom George: Today the opportunities for strategic networking are enormous. If you are a budding entrepreneur with a start up idea or perhaps you have a business that you are building online, never before have there been so many good places to meet and find, influencers, investors and helpers.
The right type of assistance can be a click away. How do you go about finding these resources and people? Well simply put it is about networking. It is about your value propostion. What exactly is your connection and your value proposition? First I think it is important to get a clear picture of your business plan and to create your story. Without a clear story your potential networkers and suitors will be unable to see your full potential.
This article actually talks about business plans and a few networks that can be helpful, but without an executable plan, you will not be able to put together your story. In order to network effectively today you need to tell your story. The benefit of this is it builds your audience and it builds your credibility. Once your story is in place you can and should network enthusiastically.
So hopefully you have your story thought out and ready to be told. Now with that being said enjoy this article on The Democratization of Entrepreneurship: The next generation of networks.
