Brian shared an educational minute at the April 30 meeting. The topic was "Networking Through Service." He suggested the best networking isn't always the formal structure of a networking group or an event, but informally through helping others. People who engage in networking for the purpose of "what's in it for me?" they will be unsuccessful long term. If they seek ways to help others, the results of their networking will be much greater.
He shared some thoughts from a blog by Jeff Goins about networking (PDF version). Please consider seeking ways to help others to improve your networking.
