Josh: How do you define Business Networking and why do you feel it is important?
Michael Yang: Business Networking is all about finding, meeting, building relationships with others who can help each other through sharing knowledge and information. It is a critical element of business success because people want to work with others who they trust and respect.
Developing new relationships all the time is another way to keep your ideas fresh, expand the range of inputs you get in making decisions, and expands your ability to contribute to the success of others.
Josh: Can you share one idea that someone could put into practice that would help them to improve their business networking skills?
Michael Yang: Become an attractive person because that will attract others to have a relationship with you. By attractive, I don’t mean external beauty. To me, attractive means having good habits and expressing sincerity, humility, and goodness in all your interactions.
