Social Network Molecule - ConnectionsSocial networking is nothing new.

Like-minded people always have and always will network together.

Isn’t that what Facebook, MySpace and Twitter are really all about? The way we network may change. But no one used the concept of networking as much as Benjamin Franklin more than 200 years ago and look what he accomplished.

If he were around today I’d bet he’d have one of the most popular Facebook pages. He’d have thousands of Tweets on his Twitter page and Thomas Jefferson and his pals would be trying to connect with him on LinkedIn. His contact list on his Blackberry would probably be the largest one you’ve ever seen.

Why? Because Ben Franklin understood the power of networking. We just have technology now that makes it easier than ever to make those connections. Here are a few ideas to help you…

Networking, done correctly is building an asset that helps you produce income without your direct effort.

Either you are working by yourself or you are working within the framework of a network that helps you produce business. Can you imagine this country being founded by someone that worked alone?

Networking is just like having a building that is paid for and produces income for you every month. The top individuals in this country, in the world rely upon their network to help them produce income. So are you leveraging a network or are you getting frustrated trying to go at it alone?

Last week we began a discussion about the difference between assets, doodads, and liabilities.

  • Assets produce income in your pocket each month
  • Liabilities takes money out your pocket
  • Doodads are just things you purchase because you want to acquire something

Unless you dedicate yourself to acquiring assets, then you will spend your time acquiring doodads, if you’re lucky, you will just purchase doodads and not liabilities like most Americans.

Why purchase a liability? Most people don’t know any better and most people are directed to by the rich that want you to be subject to them.

So what does this have to do with you?

Simple. What are you buying? What are you spending your time developing?

If not assets (they produce income) then they will either be doodads or worse liabilities.

If you don’t know the difference, you will be fooled into helping your customers stay in debt and perpetuate their debt for the remainder of their life.

The secret is to generate leads 24/7 that help your referral partners get their clients they help they desperately need. And then it’s up to you to deliver on your promise so your referral partners see their sales increase because they’re working with you.

If not, you’re just wasting your time and theirs. But if you do, you’ll have a steady stream of leads for years to come.

Let me ask you this question: Do you have referral partners working FOR YOU or are you standing on the street corner with a sign that says, “Will work for leads.”

The choice is yours.

To your success,
