Question of the Fortnight: What is your best networking tip?

What is a fortnight? It’s 14 days or 2 weeks. Why am I talking about fortnights? Because I want the question to be out there for more than one week and less then a month (I thought about doing a question of the week or month). A month seemed too long and a week didn’t seem long enough. And biweekly can be a confusing term (does it mean twice a week or every two weeks?). So, I borrowed a word … Continue reading

How are you spending your time? Is it with a lot of free offers? Free opportunities? My free of choice for a long time was teleclasses – meaning if you had a teleclass with some information I though might be useful to me at any point in my business, then I signed up! I see other people doing the same thing. Sometimes it’s a free teleclasses, sometimes its a free consultation. Sometimes it’s something else, but it’s free, therefore it costs us nothing, right? What we forget about these free things is that they take time. And suddenly … Continue reading
