I Got Net, U?

The Camaro hit 27,000 miles this morning, pop the champagne

I am driving downtown right now, attending a training conference for a couple days. My employer wants me to get the training or actually assess a training program, and I will. But my main purpose here is networking.

Networking is probably the most important thing any of us can do in our careers. And I also marvel at how the topics of networking will move from the work-related stuff to personal stuff such as weight loss, fitness and just general health, very quickly. Okay, we will certainly talk about the Chicago Bears a lot too.

Oh I suppose I do not need to tell any of you about the importance of networking, right? After all, blogging and tweeting is certainly a form of networking, and a potent one at that.

So today I challenge you, as I have challenged myself, to exercise your networking skills as well as your fitness disciplines.


  1. I will try Patrick!!!! Go get ’em!!!

    Those Bears look really good, at least with Smokin’ Jay Cutler. Vs. Seattle Seahawks this week!

    Thank you for this reminder. In my current job search I’ve been slacking in my networking efforts. But, today I did awesome. I was at a hiring event and struck up a conversation with a woman who turned out to have an excellent job lead for me with her organization. Fingers crossed.

  4. The bears are coming in a little on the injured side, so I would not be surprised to see Seattle come in here and take a victory. Of course I hope to see the Seahawks leave here beaten and done.

  5. Back at you, Go get ’em!!!

    Networking is probably more important than anything else these days…especially should you find yourself in need of a new job. My “mentor” advised that i take 5 people from my site out to coffee before I move just in case I need to call in a favor once I’m not physically here anymore.

  7. Brilliant advice you received there, thanks for sharing here!
