Conversation with a Lifelong Networker
episode #288 – October 30, 2017
GUEST: Albert Kaufman | Albertideation
Albert Kaufman considers himself a lifelong networker. In this conversation, he shares his opinions and tips for making the most of your networking activities.
I met Albert Kaufman through an online group. We were both Constant Contact Resellers. Despite the fact that we live on opposite sides of the country, we struck up a convesation and discovered we have a lot in common, especially when it comes to creating quality connections through networking.
I love networking, and you should too!
We’ve all met someone who abuses networking. Networking addicts show up at events with no planning or forethought, indiscriminately handing out business cards like candy, hoping they come home with a sale. In most cases, they don’t make any sales—they just wake up with a networking hangover!
Healthy networking- like all good marketing- begins with a plan. This workbook outlines a process to create a plan to feed your need for referrals in a healthy, respectful way.
Hi, I’m Albert Kaufman, activist, networker, musician, GreenDemocrat, and resident of Portland, Oregon.
Currently I’m running my ideation company and combining forces with others to work on some of the ideas I am interested in spreading and to provide sustainable solutions to the challenges that face our world. Whether it’s through depaving or creating an orchard in every neighborhood, my hope is that we’ll continue to get better at reducing, reusing and recycling to the point where we no longer rely on sources of energy beyond our local area.
I look forward to connecting with others who share some of my dream and who would like to combine forces to build a team to move these and other ideas forward. Join me!
