Unique Networking Conduit
hear it over and over, just meet enough people through networking
and you will naturally increase your business. If you’ve been
following this tack and making little progress, here’s a suggestion
Begin to demand more from your networking efforts by using a
strategy known as bridging, which is building a foundation of
contacts. Ones that are sure to provide you with sales opportunities
now as well as in the future. In other words, move forward with the
idea of compiling a list of people you can depend upon — connecting
with people who have potential value to each other. Eventually the
bridge will lead back to you.
great place to meet such people, those who think and act like you,
is at your trade exchange functions. You’ll meet other entrepreneurs
who see the value of networking.
Make it a goal to meet and chat with two new people at each event
you attend. And because they’re all interested in barter — using
trade dollars to purchase goods and services — soon you’ll have
compiled a list of people you can depend on. It’s the time-tested
way to build an all important and unique business network for
today’s competitive world.

Greco Continues His
Tireless Alternative Currency Efforts
Thomas H. Greco, Jr., a
community economist who writes on the subject of free market
alternative currency and monetary systems, reports that he’s
completed his nine-week European tours (mid-June through August).
Coming back to the States he next spoke in Las Vegas at IRTA’s
worldwide annual convention in September. Greco says all of the
efforts were successful, productive, exciting and … exhausting.
Greco has authored four
books on monetary theory and how monetary alternatives can empower
communities. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical
Engineering from Villanova University, acquired a Master’s of
Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Rochester, and
did additional course work pursuant to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
at Syracuse University. For 14 years he taught economics, finance,
entrepreneurship and forecasting as a faculty member at Rochester
Institute of Technology’s college of business.
He’s still hoping to get
involved in an adequately funded breakthrough project, with an able
and energetic team that can achieve results that are on a par with
the best business start-ups.
