Don't be the type of person who only shows up in your community when you have something to promote or you are in need of new clients. People spot a taker a mile away.
It happens all the time. People pooh-pooh the idea of networking and participating for the greater good.... until the day comes when they are out of work, need a new client, release a book, etc... Suddenly they are front and center, shaking hands and kissing babies.
To create and cultivate powerful business relationships who help you find the success you desire you must be consistent. Anything less will be viewed with skepticism from the people around you.
Have A Great Day.
