There is more to creating business relationships than a “like”, “link”, “share” or “follow”. While the popular social media tools can make it seem like we have countless friends and business associates, it is real human engagement that leads to opportunity. It takes objective analysis and evaluation to get back to the basics of establishing connections that will lead to more success in business, sales, and life. If you want more success, it is critical that you establish long-term and meaningful relationships. This is not just “networking” – but real human connection.
