Being a mentor or being mentored has its benefits in networking. This is a prime example of "Tag Team Networking" and development. Two is better than one and the more the merrier! These types of relationships promote accountability and responsibility. It allows a platform for productivity, goal setting, professional/personal growth, resource development, business development etc.
Find a mentor, or include your mentor in your networking activities. If you are being mentored share this initiative at your next meeting. Happy Networking!!
Do not let your business marketing and social media outreach slip! For those business owners or marketing pros, totally consider using a business blog. Blogging not only attracts new customers but can also retain loyal ones. You can use it to effectively connect with existing marketing tools. It can increase your brand awareness and compliment your business development.
Make sure to do your due diligence, though. Post relevant, accurate and quality subject matter. Make it possible for your followers / readers to re-post, comment, subscribe and "like" your postings!
