Here’s how you do it
I got a great postcard today from Ben Casnocha.
It said: Yay, summer has come Business, reading, deep thinking Time to change the world
I LIKE YOU!
Ben understands networking. He’s thoughtful. He posts comments to blogs that are relevant and interesting. He sends private e-mails in response to things he reads. He forwards articles of interest that are targeted to the people he interacts with. He clearly thinks networking is a priority and does it well.
Ben also just graduated from high school, which I think puts him light-years ahead of his peers in his understanding of human interaction (ok – lets face it – it puts him light-years ahead of people of any age in his understanding of this). If you don’t know Ben, you should. UPDATE: Ben sent me a friendly reminder that he’s actually just finished his junior year of high school – not his senior year. . . Guess that puts him yet another year ahead of the pack.
