Josh Hinds: How do you define business networking and why do you feel it’s important?

Ray Edwards: I define business networking as: making connections with people in a meaningful way, and looking for opportunities to help them.

Most people network like jerks. It’s obvious from the moment they shove their business card into your hand that their only reason for wanting to make a connection with you is to try to get something from you.

Carrie Perrien Smith interview – entrepreneur and success coach

Carrie Perrien Smith, MBA is an entrepreneur and success coach. She helps people get more opportunities, bigger paydays, and sweeter success. Her most recent book is Currency: Striking Networking Gold in a Relationship Economy.

Josh Hinds: How do you define Business Networking and why do you feel it is important?

Carrie Perrien Smith: Networking in general is important on so many levels. People cross our paths for a reason and we don’t always know why — for years sometimes. The human race was meant to interact and interconnect. I define networking as the activity of interacting and interconnecting with others. We can’t ever serve something bigger than ourselves if we aren’t engaging with other people. When diligently building a network that serves others as well as yourself, your ability to serve others quickly becomes part of your personal brand.

Kelly Ferrara interview – Strategic communications consultant

Kelly Ferrara is a strategic communications consultant and founder of StratCommRx. You can learn more about the work she does at www.stratcommrx.com

Josh Hinds: How do you define Business Networking and why do you feel it is important?

Kelly Ferrara: Business Networking is using social triggers to influence behaviors. Whether our need is to purchase something, earn something, leverage something or feel something, those ultimate behaviors are based on what we learn from our empirical and theoretical decision making paradigms. Networking creates new triggers for the public to learn about our brand, product, solution or idea. Repetition of these triggers builds validity, and can influence the public’s behavior toward you in a positive manner.

Joseph Facchiano interview – Certified Business Performance Coach

Joseph Facchiano is a business performance coach, and the owner of FocalPoint Business Coaching of Lehigh Valley. Visit him at www.JoFash.com.

Josh Hinds: How do you define Business Networking and why do you feel it is important?

Joseph Facchiano: If the key to all business deals is the quality of the relationship, we can certainly say that networking is the beginning of that relationship. If you saw the movie “Pay it Forward”, visualize the chalkboard where Haley Joel Osment’s character draws a single stick figure at the top. He then draws 3 lines down from that figure and draws 3 more stick figures. Each stick figure is then connected to 3 more. It is very easy to see that the act of one person can impact a large number of people.
