As I hinted in my previous post, wouldn't doubling your monthly revenue between now and the end of 2015 be a great accomplishment? If you decided after reading that post, that you want to be the tortoise… that you are in business for the “long haul” and see the value in moving steadily forward this year, I’ll explain the steps in this post.
I recently met with a colleague over coffee. The subject of networking came up and as so often happens, this started an interesting discussion about networking, why we do it, how to gauge its effectiveness for our business, and how to make your networking more productive.
I have always been enamored with the movies...not so much with the creative aspect, but with the business model. Look at the credits. Hundreds of people assembled for a few months (sometimes for a few years) in a sizable organization...all to produce a single end product. A massive "corporation" of sorts assembled to produce the product, then disassembled, its members to scatter and find their way into other undertakings of similar form. Fascinating!
In this political season, I just realized that political campaigns are very similar...massive teams assembled with a singular goal, then disassembled once election day passes. There is something to be learned from this dynamic.
