Networking – It’s Good for You

The retired school teacher has a network of educators and was able to give assistance to one of my volunteers who was looking for a teaching position. The woman looking for the teaching position left the after-school program happy and excited about potential employment opportunities. This is a real-world example that shows what you know doesn’t matter. Who you know matters. In this case, I knew a woman who knew a woman who knew some women who can help another woman.

Start networking and use that network to make the world a better place for yourself and those around you.


Education is important, period. You need to get all you can and can all you get. I went to school and successfully obtained a Juris Doctorate degree. My eldest child is a senior at one of the best colleges in the country. I push my children to read, learn, and do well in school. I share this information to show that I value education. At the same time, no one person can know everything. This means it is important to build a network of people who know things you do not and have relationships you do not.

Networking is important because it creates connections and builds bridges. Networking is and should be seen as a two-way street. Never think that networking is all about what other people can do for you. Think about what you can do for others in your networks. Networks are strongest and most powerful when everyone works for the benefit of everyone in the network. In other words, even if you are a selfish person who doesn’t care at all about other people, your life will be better when you help those in your network. When you help others, they will have a desire to help you.

Networking can be thrilling for you and those around you. So the question for you this thrilling day is what are you doing to make y our network better?
