Networking is defined as ‘interact with others to exchange information and develop professional or social contacts’, by Oxford Dictionaries. No matter in which profession you are in, whether you work at all or not, if you’re into your own business, are a blogger working from home, a student, job seeker, someone looking for friends, interested in dating, looking for like-minded people with hobbies and similar interests as yours, and so much more, you can very much benefit from networking!
Should you work harder, and harder, and then, infinitely harder…? From what I’ve seen, we really should be working hard, of course! However, after having reached a high level of working hard enough, working harder could prove to be unproductive and even unhealthy, giving undesired results! That’s why I choose to work smart as well!!
Have you given your first public speech yet? This could have been on the occasion of your cousin’s wedding, for a university project, a business presentation, an informal get-together with colleagues, etc. Whether standing behind the lectern for a formal speech with ‘all protocols observed’, or for a fun event, such as a party, these are all occasions for us to use our speaking skills!
