I have had the privilege to meet Marshall in person as well, and it is amazing the feelings of warmth and genuineness he was able to convey towards me in that 2 minute exchange. His information is packed with actionable steps, which I loved. (I ran out and bought his book the next day.) Social connections are enhanced by the in-person experience, and I am much more likely to pay attention to the person I feel I have a connection with.

@Elli - the spirit of inquiry does help in business and in life.

@DJ - great to see you here and you're always welcome.

@Mark - if I wished anything for us, it would be the ability to slow down long enough to become thoughtful and deliberate about building relationships. The reality of piling numbers easily in social networks is distorting the real reality (if I may write so) of being interested and open to connections. Alas, often attempts are made starting with "what's in it for me" vs. let's see where this goes.

Very insightful indeed - yet simple and logical, how unfortunate business and business people tend to steer around caring about the most importnat people to them.

Seems easier to attempt to show care and personal touch for some than actually do it. Mail merge is an example the other comes from network meetings, when receiving generic emails after the events usually from the people you never met face to face.

Social media gives everyone a fantastic opportunity to network and connect and then to physically MEET.
