UnknownI’ve always looked for people to emulate, someone who is a master networker. Today I read a story in Inc. Magazine about someone who would win the title hands down.

Problem is that I can’t imagine anyone emulating his habit of working 16 hours a day and making hundreds of phone calls a day.

The worst part is that he targets someone he wants to meet and he is relentless in trying to reach that person. He’ll call an assistant multiple times trying to get through, not taking no for an answer. In total he might have to make half a dozen attempts to get through to someone.

This is something I just can’t do. If this is what it takes to be successful as a networker, even a mild version of this, then I give up.
