If you put in the regular daily grind, chances are you aren’t coming home and diving into more work and research. No one wants to be on the clock 24/7, but networking offers you a chance to continue to learn without necessarily clocking in hours in front of a desk. Michael Goldberg at Huffington Post suggested, “We’re always learning! Learning about a product, service, industry, profession, market segment, trend, whatever. Where do you need to go, what do you need to say, and with whom do you need to meet to learn what you need to learn? Contact your network and find out!” By constantly having an open dialogue with a network either online or in person, you get to stay on top of information and trends, and better strengthen your business or work.
