Teh secret? ONE person at a time. I grew my network from 0 to nearly 150,000 direct connections, by simply taking the time for that ONE connection, ONE person, ONE contact. The benefits are tremendous, from job offers, from partnership requests, from speaking engagements, from publications, from other new OPPORTUNITIES where I am selective in whom I am dealing with, how, when and why. Try it. You will see only great and possitive results.
