Are you a SELFISH Networker?

VERY seldom on this website do we post ANYTHING negative, so let’s put a positive spin on SELFISH Networking… Do you bring a guest with you to each Networking event ?  If you are able to attend LOTS of Networking groups in your local market, that is wonderful.  Do you introduce yourself to the guests and first-timers in the room ?  Do you offer each of them a chance to meet the people you know who may be a great fit for their product or service ?

Some people attend Networking events for the purpose of meeting the guests that OTHERS have brought !!!  That is what we mean by SELFISH Networking.  They are ONLY there to see who the newbies are and to SNATCH THEM UP for their own product or service or to recruit them into THEIR business opportunity.  These are the Networkers who NEVER bring guests themselves.  Keep an eye out for these folks and steer clear.

A great Networking Group offers TONS of opportunities for everyone in the room to make new connections and build new relationships.  Make sure YOUR reputation is that of a true professional rather than a SELFISH Networker !!!

Cathy Weaver

Cathy Weaver began Networking full time in June of 2008, when she co-founded her Miracles With Water company. She started Networking all over the Greater Kansas City area and was soon referred to as a ‘Master Networker’. Her involvement in these groups over the years has actually awarded her designations such as 2012 Volunteer of the Year for the Olathe Chamber of Commerce; a four-time Bartlett-Olson Membership Achievement Award Recipient; and Cathy was voted into the KC Magazine’s 2013 Class of Most Influential Women. In 2018, Cathy was selected as the Kansas Women Business Advocate of the Year by the Kansas Department of Commerce. With the success of her Kangen Water business, dba Miracles With Water, Cathy also found the time to write 3 books: "Networking On Steroids" published in 2012, "He Hit The Clouds Running...and never looked back" published in 2017 and "Networking On Steroids PQ" published in 2020. From #water to #networking to #grief and beyond, Cathy may be that person YOU would like to have speak to your group, virtually, of course.
