Fascinating article, not for the article's content, but for the responses to it. This is the first article where I have read through all the  responses, and, in doing so, found amazing people I would like to meet. 

See what I mean by reading the responses. Here, you can truly separate "Givers" from "Takers."  This fits with all the research I have seen on networks. It follows especially the great research Adam Grant shares in his book, "Give and Take." Grant, a Wharton professor, shares the powerful insights that Takers win in the short term while Givers (more like the tortoise in "The Tortoise and the Hare,") win in the long term. 

At the end of the day, I am so grateful to all the givers I have met in the business world. 
Do you want to, as the cliché says “take your business to the next level?” If you REALLY mean it then you may be doing a lot less “coffee meetings”. You know those meetings that people invite you to

Anybody out there who can help us with a Google Hangout? We used to do them and they were easy but we can't seem to get one going now.

What is your core offering and is it currently too expensive for too many people? What can you do to change that paradigm where your offerings are desired at just the price point you believe they are worth now? Great insights around creating the powerful value equation. What do you think?

Story

Anything is possible with the right partners in life, both in business and in personal life.
Introduction
For me it's all about making a difference--the greatest good for the greatest number. My differentiator is that I make making a difference fun. I love to help individuals and organizations improve their top-line performance and bottom-line results. I have authored and co-authored 11 books and am just finishing my twelfth book. 

I help people, with the help of other people we have licensed in Networlding, learn the amazing power for good of social networking and social media. I speak, coach, consult and am now building out a network of facilitators of Networlding that creates "values-based" networks around the world. My goal is to win The Nobel Peace Prize for teaching companies "how to do well by doing good."
