I have learned from a great friend of mines; Theresa Royal Brown of the famous ENPET Networking Business Group in Washington DC; networking is more than just putting a card in someone’s hand, it’s about building relationship with that person. And when you place your business card in their hand, your goal is to build a relationship with them and them with you.
When I began AnyEvent, I was giving out business card to anyone that would accept them. I would go through tons of cards with no return of business. No calls or business from anyone. People had my card, I had theirs, but no relationship Then the light bulb came on, all people see is a business card, they have no idea who I am, so why would they want to do business with me?

Who’s hand is your business card in? What relationship and business partnerships have you built by using your business card? Please share your comments and views, I would love to hear from you. Until next time, The Business Woman.
