Mentoring & Networking

#1 - Mentoring and networking are two sides of the same coin.

#2 - You can possibly network without being deliberately involved in mentoring (giving or receiving) but you can’t deepen relationships purely through networking.

#3 - Networking is a key component of your personal ‘brand’. Mentoring can help you examine that brand.

#4 - Networking takes preparation, practice and commitment.... as much as mentoring does.

#5 - Mentoring and networking are vital to any person doing anything at which they want to excel.

#6 Both mentoring and networking are your choice. There are many folks who are very happy not doing either. Mentoring and networking don't guarantee you success but they sure can help.
