For the past three decades of my working life, I have taken a few career changes and business ventures - some were successful but quite a number I had failed.I knew a few of my friends who never failed because they had never took the risks when opportunities came to them. C'est la vie..
To young men/women out there, please read this short article.Personally,I have been using the techniques mentioned without knowing them for the last 10 years.It helped me in some of my business ventures.
From my personal experience in business since 1989, almost all of my business opportunities came out from my personal network.A few months ago, I bought a book entitled The Little Black Book of Networking and my 17 years old son is reading it. He told me it is a good book even for him as a student.I strongly recommend the book,especially if you are going to be in business for yourself.
As they say, opportunity knocks once and when we are not ready it is gone to someone who is ready and willing to grab it.
