It’s time for a new word:  connectworking 

(except don’t try it out loud… it will stick in your craw). 

It’s not just networking, and it’s not just connecting — it’s connectworking, and it’s absolutely essential for your business.   Here’s why:

    Networking: that thing we do because it’s good for our business.
  Connecting: that thing we do because it’s good for our relationships.
Connectworking:  that thing we do because it’s good for our business relationships.

    Networking: we have to
  Connecting: we want to
Connectworking: we get to.   We get to form relationships with people we enjoy, who share our values, and who GET the work we do.   The resulting business alliances are simple, natural side-effects.

    Networking: me
  Connecting: us
Connectworking: everyone

Everyone is connected in some way — call it universal energy, one mind, spirit-ual connection — Everyone is connected to you, your business, your goals, your dreams.   Infinite resources.  Infinite possibility. 

Connectwork.  Your business, your calling, depends on it.

I totally get this! Have you copyrighted it?

And may I add that I love this new site. I’ve been down the “rabbit holes” and finding they lead to so many interesting new places to explore and discover more of your authentic creativity.

Donne, so wonderful to see you here — welcome!

I’m not surprised that *you* get the connectworking concept; you are a great example of it.

I love your use of the “rabbit holes” phrase! Thank you for your thumbs up, and even more for taking the time to explore and enjoy.

Let’s meet here again soon…
