Defining my “associate” relationships…

What I am reading:  Make Your Contacts Count (Networking Know-How For Business and Career Success) by Anne Baber and Lynne Waymon



Where in the book: page 41


Why I am reading: Learning how to network. Cause believe me, I have no CLUE!


Which quote: “Develop your relationships-Six Stages- Associates: People you come in contact with on some regular basis for some period of time.”


How this quote adjusted my thinking:


I belong to a virtual Relay for Life team.  The people on the team are so dedicated.  It is so rare to be working with people who’s hearts are so filled with love. Last year was my first year being on the team.  It is the most intense four month time span. Yet, the relationships and friendships that result are enduring.  I never stopped to think of my time on the Relay for Life team as networking. However, when I stop and look at it,  it really is incredible. I am so excited to be a part of the team again this year.  Actually, I am  honored.
