networking is an amazing thing – it has to be said
on a social level – i find it incredible that in a manner of minutes you can realize that the perfect stranger you have just met and began communicating with has been ‘related’ to you in some way for some time without you even realizing it. it can bring on thoughts of fate, seredipity even.
on a more professional level – it is so important to build a network with those who have a goal in common with what you are pursuing. it surprises me every day how easy and rewarding it is to help, and be helped, by others.
add social media to the mix, and you have narrowed that “separation” by more than you realize.
just felt the need to point out that it really can be a small world after all
