Someday I Will Pay You Back

Kevin Willett says that Networking isn’t about keeping score.

I have a friend who reaches out to me from time to time for help. The last time I helped her she said “someday I am going to pay you back.” This statement made me laugh because I never expect anyone to pay me back. I help her because I think she is a good person.

I see this happen with networking all the time. People try to keep score and they expect to receive a referral back every time they pass one. If you are doing this please stop.

Life simply doesn’t work that way. You are not always going to be able to find referrals for the people that pass one on to you. This is why I focus on what I call the Circle of Love. I simply try to help as many people as I can, knowing that this is building my brand and that good things will come from it. I encourage you to try my approach. I think it will improve the results of your networking activity.
