Be Proactive! Be Positive! Add Value! Share Opportunity!
Remember the above mantra. It will serve you well in networking. If you are proactive in your connections (don’t wait for the other guy/girl), are a positive person, add value to people’s lives and share opportunity with your network, there is a good chance you’ll be remembered positively.
