The other night I was fortunate to attend the book release party for my friend Steve Harper's book, The Ripple Effect. The book, as I have mentioned in a previous post, is about the importance of building strong personal relationships, helping others, and changing the world. If this launch party was any indication, the book is well on it's way to achieving these goals.
Over 100 people who know and respect Steve Harper came out to buy the book, support the author and network with other cool people from the local business community. It was an eclectic gathering, and everyone there understood the power of networking and how relationships with other people can be incredibly beneficial. While I did not know many of those in the room, it availed me the opportunity to meet many fascinating new people. It was a room a-buzz with networking. Steve instinctively knew how to bring networker together for networking.
One of Steve's mantras is that if you throw a stone into the water...the ripples you create will cross the whole pond. One is not even aware when the ripples begin, just where they will end up. I think that there were many connections made at this event, and only time will tell how those people will effect each others lives.
Congratulations to The Ripple Effect. And don't forget to read Steve's Blog.
Have a Great Day
