An entrepreneur cannot survive without connections. I am intimately acquainted with this concept. If I didn’t know people, then people wouldn’t know me. This is a very scary reality for a business owner because people generally want to hire people they know.
This idea got me thinking about my connections:
- Who do I know?
- How do I know this person?
- How well do I know them?
- How close are we?
Our new world of social media (love that term) has really muddied the concept of “connection.” We’ve got all these different levels of connecting and varying social norms/rules that go along with each level. It can all get very confusing very quickly…
