Your network isn’t who all are in your LinkedIn connections

We have more unknown faces in our LinkedIn list than we do on Facebook. Something is broken, and we do need to fix it.

Your network is your net worth.

You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.

This is what’s wrong.



  • Don’t expect them to tutor you.
  • Value their time.
  • Examples always help.


  • Don’t ignore requests.
  • Don’t wait for the other person to ask for help.
  • If you see a problem, point it out. If you see something good, appreciate it.

The size of your LinkedIn network doesn’t matter. The size and impact of your conversations and actions do. That’s real networking.

That’s it for today. See you tomorrow.
