“So it’s not who you know. It’s who knows you.” – Athol Kay, Realtor, blogger, photographer
Today’s social media community driven by high powered technology has made the world a much smaller place. We can connect, conference and do business with people from all over the world from the comforts of our own home. Create some travel plans and you can do it in person.
If this smallness does nothing else, it creates choice. Choice in who to interact with personally and who to do business with professionally. With all this choice, the particular product or service is no longer the selling point – the person behind it is.
This translates into a surge of networking venues – shaking hands, passing cards, and “getting your name out there.” However, your name is just like your product or service – not so much important when compared to the person behind it.
It is easy to get wrapped up in the process of meeting “the person to know.” Whether you are in a new town or the place you grew up, there is always talk of “the person you need to connect with. While this may be true, don’t ever forget that sentence has a follow up thought – “And needs to connect with you.”
Today I encourage you to remember the truth in “quality, not quantity,” and recognize how it applies to your relationships. When someone gets to know the wonderful person you are, your name won’t be a problem. Remember – when you are out meeting “the people to know,” you are one of those people yourself.
