In times like these it helps to have friends.
Are you actively building new relationships?
The key to building genuine professional relationships is to add value when you don’t need help, so that you have an army of advocates looking to assist when you do.
And these days LinkedIn is among the best places to increase your professional network.
Before you attempt your next connection, ask yourself how you can add value.
Can you offer your expertise, data, mentorship, or a helpful connection?
Bring value first and you’ll see your network (and net worth) skyrocket.
