    think about how you approach networking so you can get the most out of your time spent The World is Flat Some networkers I know move through a networking event to collect as many business cards as possible They tend to put people they meet into two broad categories prospects or non prospects They quickly discard the non prospects as a waste of time That s a mistake A non prospect may be just as important to your future needs as a prospect because they may connect you with someone or something you need Remember six degrees of separation With the introduction and widespread use of social media and other technologies a study from 2012 shows that these days it s more like four degrees The more people you know really know the more likely you are to make that important connection you need to take your career company or venture to the next level Stop Working the Room The number one rule is to stop thinking about networking as networking Networking should not be about meeting as many people as possible in as short amount of time There is no glory in returning to your office with a handful of business cards if nothing comes from your efforts and there is no need to continually add to your LinkedIn connections unless you can establish a meaningful relationship with these new connections I work hard to figure out what I can do for someone else when I meet them Who can I connect them to What can I do for them outside of selling them my stuff What resource or information can I share that will help them out True connection is a two way street Be Selective I attend one event a week If I pick a new event and it s not right for me I don t go back If it ends up being a good use of my time where I meet quality people who are interesting and interested then it makes it onto my list of events to attend in the future One such event in Atlanta started by Darrah Brustein is the Atlanta Under 40 event Darrah s event attracts almost 200 people a month There is an unspoken rule that people don t sell to each other at Atlanta Under 40 it s about getting to know someone new Her event has been so successful that she recently unveiled an Atlanta Over 40 to give everyone a place to make new connections Focus on Only a Few One of my colleagues makes it a point to only meet one person at any given event and spends his time really getting to know that one person He relies on that deep connection to potentially connect him with the rest of their network I am not as hyper focused but try to have a meaningful conversation with only about five people at every event I attend or for each day of a conference This results
