Quick Tip:
Start Networking Now – Online!

Expanding your business network is one of the most valuable things you can do for your career. And building an online network is now easier than ever.

Some of the most prominent online network communities include Linkedin.com, Ecademy.com, and Ryze.com. Although these services differ somewhat from each other, all allow you to create a profile and add contacts (or connections). Additional premium services can be added for a fee.

It does not take long to take advantage of the tremendous power of online networks. For instance, I now have over 25 contacts on Linkedin.com, which gives me access to more than 22,000 professionals.

This chain of trusted connections gives you access to a vast network of professionals, companies, and industries across the world – relationships you can use to help them as you advance your own career.

So take the time to build your online network. Start by mining your Rolodex, your PDA, and your online address books for a list of contacts to begin with. Soon you'll have a powerhouse network at your calling!
