HUGE shout out to Dr. +Jay Greenstein and +Sport and Spine Rehab in Fairfax, VA for allowing me to enjoy my vacation pain-free. Two days prior to leaving for our Disney Cruise, I developed some awful tendinitis in my shoulder. I could barely lift anything and after two days of rehab, I was 100% the day we left. Thank goodness, because I ended up carrying my boys a combined 2-3 hours each day of the trip. They came through for me once again and I cannot recommend them enough!

I'm about to chat with my buddy +Brian Carter about my new book, Networking Is Not Working. Hope you can join us!
 
If you didn't hear about Derek's book, which on Amazon is currently #1 in Direct Marketing, and #1 in Entrepreneurship, you can hear about it here.  I'm going to interview him!

It's not that crappy old kind of networking you're thinking of. It's not going to a luncheon where the yellow pages guy tries to used-car you into buying a full page ad.

Derek has a totally new take on networking- well ok SOME people have been doing it this way for years, but he's put it into a system you can follow easily.

This is how everyone will badly want to network in 5 years, but by then there will be so many people knocking at the door... I'm not going to tell you why, but all I'm saying is you need to put this into practice NOW before the potential high value networks are already spoken for. And you're stuck just talking to the yellow pages guy.

Who's Derek? He grew and runs an amazing networking group in Washington D.C. called Cadre. Ok I'll tell you why. One of the keys to taking networking to the next level is WHO you network with, and HOW.

Connect, Create, Collaborate- ok do you get it? It's the next evolution of networking.

The book is called "Networking is Not Working", it's very forward thinking in two other ways- it's only 114 pages, so you can read it in a few hours, and it's only $2.99.

You can get it here- http://www.amazon.com/Networking-Not-Working-Collecting-Connections-ebook/product-reviews/B00K436RH8/
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Brian Carter. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Building Remarkable Professional Networks
Learn the power of connection from +Derek Coburn, author of Networking is NOT Working.

Online or offline, we grow our business not just in the quality of our work but in the network of peers we surround ourselves with.

Check out this awesome TED talk by +Marcus Sheridan! Don't worry- this is not about lying. You'll see why revealing more about your business than you ever considered sharing could take you to the next level!
 
"Revolutionary stuff"!! ;) Just tell the truth people!! You'll be surprised how far it will get you. Congrats +Marcus Sheridan on your incredible talk at TEDx Rock Creek Park!

I attended MastermindTalks, my favorite annual conference for entrepreneurs, a few weeks ago. I learned a ton from the 20+ presenters and wanted to share these insights with my network. There is at least one life-changing person or tip in this post for everyone.

Really enjoyed my conversation with +Laurel Staples on Go Fire Yourself! Thanks +Jason Weisenthal for the introduction! 
Interview with Derek Coburn (CadreDC.com) There’s a problem with the business networking events that you’re attending—traditional networking doesn’t work. It’s like trying to use Morse code because you’re unaware that iPhones exist. But here on the show today is Derek Coburn, author of the new book, Networking is Not Working (launching on April 28th) to school us on non-traditional networking methods that are actually effective in growing your cl...

Great article from Adam Grant! Research shows that having daughters and being around more female family members makes men more generous (and nicer overall). Applies in business, as well! With two sons, I guess I'll have to figure out another way to improve in those areas. :)
The mere presence of female family members — even infants — can be enough to nudge men toward being generous, studies show.

Story
Introduction

When I have a great experience with a business, I love to tell everyone I know. I also love connecting people. In fact, I’ve referred over 300 opportunities within my network just this past year. Remarkable businesses are hard to find, and the ones who are great deserve to have people know about them.

As an owner of Washington Financial Group, most of my clients view me as their “Personal CFO,” and turn to me for advice whenever they’re making a financial decision. I want to help them in any way I can, which has made it imperative for me to have a diverse network of remarkable professionals that I can call on whenever a client’s needs are outside what our firm can provide. I consider myself very lucky to have a great core of strategic partners, but these relationships have taken years to develop and I’ve always wished there was a way to build such relationships more efficiently.

Typically if you’re a remarkable professional, you are extremely focused on adding value for your clients – which limits the time you have to market and network. We created CADRE as a way for remarkable professionals to connect and develop meaningful relationships with other top professionals efficiently and effectively, with the ultimate goal of working together to promote each other while adding value for their existing clients and network.
