Another AA acronym

A few weeks ago I blogged about how many networkers should be attending AA. In this instance, I meant that many networkers have activity avoidance syndrome.

Today I want to talk about another AA acronym.  And this time it is something (actually two things) you should have when networking.  Attitude and Activity.


Many times I talk about having the right attitude when networking.  That of being open to helping others and believing that good karma will return your way.  But did you know that having what I call a “country club mentality” is also a good thing?  This is not a holier than thou mentality.  What I mean by a “country club mentality” is holding the belief that other networkers can benefit from getting to know you.  In fact, that they should want to network with you.  It’s not about conceit, but rather confidence that you can help their business grow.


What’s the one skill you should be using daily to help your business grow?  That’s right – networking.  Stop working in your business and get busy working on your business.  Want to increase the amount of business you are doing?  Increase your exposure.  Plan and simple, you need to be active daily.  Just make sure it’s quality activity.

Build your network, increase your business, do it over lunch!
