The Value in Connections
This isn’t specifically design related, or even marketing related, but it is business related.
“I know this guy who knows this girl who knows this guy and he does exactly what you’re talking about. You have to meet him.” How many business relationships start this way? I read the other day in some business piece about how acquaintances [much] more frequently turn into successful working relationships than good friendships do. So, there is value in just saying hello and making idle chit chat while in traffic.
Opportunities work that way.
And being open to communication from strangers is your conduit for such activity. So, unless you’re having a really bad day, take out your earbuds, get off your cell phone and take in your surroundings — and give your surroundings a chance to take you in as well. Say hello.
