How to Network with Dream Connections - Rule #5

There are many ways to start, continue or conclude a conversation.

Some of them depend on personality, or the surroundings you're in.

But who can resist a question? Especially one well-asked in good faith?

I've found a questioning "sequence," that works every time I try it.

But there's a way you do this, that requires self-discipline and patience.

Here's a shameless self-plug to a podcast interview I did about that.

How to Network with Dream Connections - Rule #4

Have you ever wondered why Dream Connections "don't network?"

I mean, they network ... but not at chamber forums or Rotary clubs.

They network among each other, much like highly skilled professionals do.

Leave aside time and the incongruence of mingling with part-time MLMers.

Isn't it a bit shallow of us to chalk it up to elitism or contempt for average joes?

It's the most counterintuitive thing in the world. The best way to look out

for "Number One" is to trust that God will provide someone to look out for

you, while you look out for one of His other children.

we're willing to take a look....

LISTEN HERE

This was one for the ages. Recorded just after the drought ended.

Can you remember when you finally stopped the bleeding, and started winning?

It was no coincidence to end up on the Kingdom Driven Entrepreneur Podcast.

My friend Shae Bynes did a wonderful job interviewing.

But to go before an audience of mainly fellow Christians and testify ...
