HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT WHY BUSINESS IS NOT BETTER?

I’M NOT SUGGESTING IT’S BAD, I’M ASKING IF YOU THINK OF HOW TO MAKE IT BETTER?

I’m often looking for ways to drive business to my companies, after all I own a Branding/Advertising Agency so that should be easy right? Well it’s not always that easy. So while I do all the same things you likely do, I have given myself a big advantage by creating a networking organization called “The Art of Active Networking” and in the 6 years of doing it I have gained very little business. But I have built amazing amount of “Social Capital”. This was not on purpose, it is simply who I am and I care about people, relationships and helping others to do better, and frankly I don’t get a lot in return business…and that’s ok!

Today I decided to look up the term “Social Capital” and here is what I got: "Social capital refers to the collective value of all 'social networks' [who people know] and the inclinations that arise from these networks to do things for each other ['norms of reciprocity’]." Well damn, by accident this is exactly what we do at my events across this country and in Canada! Who knew?

And I do believe I am going to now create a T-Shirt to sell that also reads: "NORMS OF RECIPROCITY!" So watch for that coming soon!

Now, come and build your Social Capital with a roomful of folks you don’t have to convince or sell to. My network rocks, you are a part of that network, so come get your Social Capital on, and let’s embrace our Norms of Reciprocity in one big connected room!
