Most people don't give their network a second thought until they need something. They don't think of it as a "thing". They think of their network as just the people they know - or know of.
However, when you change your approach and see your network as an asset, something that can be built up, refined and enhanced, then you start to understand the real value of a strong network.
Your network will help you get more business, get more support and get more help when you need it - BUT ONLY IF IT HAS BEEN BUILT RIGHT!
Build your network sloppily and you'll get sloppy results. Build a robust, engaged and reciprocal network and you'll get awesome results. Tribemine will help you do the latter.
