You have 20000 friends on Facebook, 30000 followers on Twitter and you keep complaining of not being rich.
Think for a moment; you have been sitting on a goldmine. Let the following clause continue to recur to you: “your network is your net-worth”.
Having contacts is not sufficient; there is need to put your network into its best use to really get the best out of it.
Make friends long before you think you will need them. It becomes embarrassing when you seek someone’s friendship because you need favour. That makes you a fair weather friend.
Render a helping hand in your little way. When you help people, you tend to get unsolicited favour every now and then.
Make reasonable and value adding contributions on social networks where you are subscribed. It makes you highly respectable.
