Breakthrough Strategies - Network

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Results 20344949

You have probably heard  an expert say,"Show me your NETWORK and I can determine your NET WORTH!

The people in our NETWORK is where most Realtors and Mortgage professionals get their business from.  So by adding the RIGHT people to your NETWORK you can quickly improve your NET WORTH!

Size does count when it comes to Networks, but often the key is to have STRATEGIC ALLIANCES who can help you in spectacular fashion.  These people send you multiple referrals and put you in contact with the right people at the right time.  These are people that you can work together on with different business ventures.

I have been very blessed to make several connections lately with people on the national scene in the coaching and speaking scene.  I now have made my network wide by having connections with many people.  But adding STRATEGIC ALLIANCES that have BIG NETWORKS I have now expanded the DEPTH of my network.

To make your network wider you would meet more people in your community at things like Chamber or Charity Events or by joining local networking groups like a BNI or even Toastmasters or Rotary.

You can also do that by going online to websites like:

Linked In  ---  Facebook ---- DirectMatches  and others...

If I did it right you can click on the links above to connect with me!  DirectMatches has a business focus.  It is more for small business owners and internet marketers, so if you are looking to connect with business people like that this is a site you should check out and do some networking!

INCREASING YOUR NETWORK WILL HELP YOU BREAKTHROUGH!  A couple key ALLIANCES might be all you need to go to the next level!

Hmmm...Network equals Net Worth.  Interesting.  I've been a Linked In member for over 2 years.  It didn't seem to gain much traction until recently.  I've seen people in my sphere grow their networks from just a few people to 50, 80 or over 100.  Guess it's time for me to start growing mine.

Chuck, I need to get involved in the Chamber.  I have been building a network via linkd-in, facebook, twitter, digg, and pulse however.  Still along way to go - thanks for the tips.

Thanks for all the comments. Do the things you like. You might not be able to do them all. Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone.
