Networking constellation style…

Who recommended: Lynne Waymon

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 183

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

Which quote: “Create Constellations-Put together your own referral group-your constellation-by forming alliances with top notch professionals in the other fields who have access to your market.”

How this quote adjusted my thinking: I have seen the constellation building in practice. As a member of the Virtual Assistants industry, the people I have met recognize their skills meet a need of their clients. They are not shy about referring other virtual assistants to their client when a project requires specialized skill. The networking within this industry should be commended.
