What does networking mean for you?
I am old chook now, and have experienced, what I call the good times and the current situation.
The Good times:
The Current Situation:
Do people realize, that at the end of the day the average bloke, lets say had a $100.00 in the good times to spend. There were perhaps lets say for argument sake, 4 venues to spend it at, and now for the same $100.00 there are billions and billions of venues, website etc.…etc.…to spend it at..?
So what does this tell us…are we living in a world where with all the improvement, technology, access to all facilities within reach, internet etc.….we are driving ourselves into a hole where a lot of people will find it hard to come out of?
Having said all that what is the solution?
I do not have one, I am still following the trend, displaying in events, taking part in network meetings, am part of all the social networks…
Of course along the way I evaluate what is better for me, I have to admit I thoroughly enjoy meeting and networking the new way of networking these days, I meet some awesome people along the way, which I would not have met the traditional way.
At the end of the day, I still reckon we are making it harder for ourselves to achieve or perhaps come close to the quality of life we used to live before.
Has anyone got a solution…I like to hear what you think?
