Network Math: One idea times the right contacts equals unlimited results
Network Math: One idea times the right contacts equals unlimited results. ~Mark Victor Hansen. (Click to Tweet)

I heard that quote in an interview with Mark Victor Hansen recently. It perfectly sums up the power of your network.

Your potential goes only as far as your network.

Your income is limited and expanded by your network.

The success of your next project, your next business, or your next fundraiser is dependent on your network.

So what is stopping you from building and maintaining a powerful network today?

I’ve written extensively about networking in the following posts. If you have not read them, you should. If you have read them but aren’t putting them into practice, read them again and take action!

    I love math….

    I think TIME is one of the biggest factors in preventing me from building and maintaining a network that is as powerful as it could be.

      But it is time well spent and will save you time in the future! Remember that 🙂

    Matt, I’m so excited to start purposely maintaining my network after reading your posts and having the opportunity to discuss it with you! Thanks so much for “opening your play book” for those of us that haven’t had the experience in this area! You rock, my friend!

      I am excited for you Mark!

      Let me know how I can help brother.

        Thanks bro! I’m excited too. I’m looking forward to working on it for a month or two and then asking questions to clarify what isnt working or I’m not sure about 🙂

  4. Just started being more systematic in my outreach. Thanks for the ideas.

    Networking is so essential. I have greatly benefited and valued from networking with other writers, successful business men/women, and authors. I’ll be checking out some of the posts you mentioned.

    Networking is interwoven into my goals this year. You have given some great resources to help with this, so I’m sure I’ll be revisiting to remind myself.

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      I hope they help Joshua and I look forward to hearing the results.

    I think time is the biggest limiting factor for me – but working on it as much as I can. I don’t think we can underestimate the value of your network…not anymore.
