Project: What’s Your Network Tell Others About Your Net Worth?

Does what you say, all the little nuances of what you do, add up to scream money?

Are you genuine? If the very people you are interacting with caught you unaware at home or in your office cubicle, would they catch the same person?

Are you altruistic in your behavior? Do you attend events that benefit not-for-profit organizations?

Are you dependable? If you are the speaker, be ready to speak. Be on time, tune into the people and their needs.

Are you prepared and articulate? You don’t have to get your cue cards all in a row, but make sure you feel comfortable, so you’re not on the spot. And a few business cards up your sleeve? Perfect!

Are you creative? Why is networking looked at as unfavorable? Because it’s un-favorable. Volunteer to plan an event and make it diverse.

All these things add up to net worth. They say time is money. All this time you are spending with others is their time as well.

Your genuineness, your altruistic behavior, your dependability, etc., ends up being the net worth of your time. How much is your time worth? Can you put a price tag on it? Or is the integrity of your word and the networking and interactions amongst your colleagues, both old and new alike, and their respect for you as a valuable asset enough?

What does your network tell others about your net worth? How valuable is your time? And how do you value others' time?

The next time you go to a networking event, remember that if time is really money others are paying as well.
