The concept of 24x7 networking might seem a little farfetched. After all, you’re only one person, right? And you’re probably also a busy executive with a lot of responsibilities demanding your attention. So how does 24x7 networking fit into that picture?
First, let’s step back a bit. As you probably realize, networking has a lot of sides to it. Many people tend to think first of in-person (face-to-face) networking, such as you might do when you attend a variety of business-related events. That’s where the idea of 24x7 networking seems incredible. Obviously, you can’t be in more than one place at a time—at least, no one I’ve heard of has figured out a way to do that yet.
