@Veronika - I love the concept of networking karma. I wish there was a direct metric to that inside organizations to help people do more of it. I had seen the video before as well. This time it felt appropriate to share it.

@Jayne - glad it was inspiring and thank you for stopping by.

Thanks for sharing that video, I've never seen it before. Serving others, serving the world is the greatest goal we can aspire to. And as your video points out....we don't have to have much to serve the world. Just a sign and a heart. Thanks again.

"It's a great day when you learn that two people you introduced to each other have started a business together, or are working on an interesting project."

That it is! I love doing that; I say I'm an woman entrepreneur who loves helping other entrepreneurs succeed! I think it's the best job in the world - and if you don't think you can do it as gainful employment then try it as a hobby; you'll be surprised by the rewards it offers.

This year I hope to develop two websites: "ItsGoodToKnowMe.com" where I hope to journal how I've connected people with others or with resources and the success they had from those connections (promoting my clients successes being the goal); and and "NetworkingKarma.com / KarmaNetworking.com" - not sure of exact direction yet but maybe sharing good things about companies instead of negative.

It only takes a moment to share a piece of info that could make a huge change in someone's life/business.

I think transparency is one of the greatest gifts you can offer - not being afraid to share what you know and what you're doing can lead to all sorts of connections - like Jack Canfield says, you can't find the person that's destined to help you with your dream if you hide your dream. I would extend it further to say you can't help others with their dreams if you don't let people know who you know, what you know, and what you have to offer.

Participating in the community and lifting up the people around you creates a space for everyone to succeed.

Thanks for sharing that video - I've seen it before but it's something that always makes me happy to be alive!
