POWER TIP #1 Be Generous Before You Ask for Anything
"One of the most important principles of networking is to offer value before you expect anything in return." "When you meet someone new, don't just think about what they can do for you. Think about how you can help them first. It could be something simple, like sharing a useful resource or introducing them to someone who can benefit them." "By doing this, you show that you are not just interested in yourself, but also in the other person's needs and goals. You also build trust and goodwill, which are essential for any relationship." "Don't make the mistake of asking for a favor before you have established a connection. That will only make you look selfish and opportunistic, and ruin your chances of forming a lasting bond." "Think of networking as a long-term investment. You have to deposit value and earn interest before you can withdraw anything. For example, one of my contacts regularly checked in with me and offered his assistance on my projects. After a year of doing this, he asked me for a favor. I agreed without hesitation, because he had shown me that he was a genuine and generous person."
