Bk: Never Eat Alone

Problogger has a post on building relationships today, in reference to blogging, that reminds me of a book I read recently. Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi, Tahl Raz is about business relationships, networking, mentoring, and making contacts in a more meaningful way. Suze Orman's recent 'YF&B' show highlighted a couple of credit- indebted social net workers who incurred much of their debt funding parties and drinks most nights of the week. While this can be an enjoyable way of making contacts, Never Eat Alone questions the inherent value of this process and stresses contacts on a more personal and thus rewarding level. Problogger Darren Rowse’s series on Building Blogging Relationships is a similar model, bringing together bloggers and their audience, online and in person in a progressive, value-added partnership.

Interesting book. If you network just for the sake of it, rethink your business and personal goals. Read the book and check out Problogger.

I know a pastor who decided several years ago to never eat lunch alone. It's worked for him -- he now has over 7,000 people attend his weekly services!!!!
