I was having lunch not too long ago with a great friend, helping him out with a new wine sitehe’s been building. He mentioned that a mutual business acquaintance had said that “I’ve never seen anyone network like” me. Huh? I hate networking. I hate when I feel like people are networking with me.But I do believe in relationships. Even though I’m an introvert and don’t really know how to talk to people whom I don’t know, unless I have something specific to talk with them about. Like work.Why do you care?
Thats a photo of the staff of TurnTide, which we founded and sold to Symantec in 2004. The orange circles are the people who have now joined us at Commerce360. The red circles are people who worked with us at Destiny before TurnTide.Nurturing relationships is smart all of those people are awesome. And they are known quantities; they reduce risk. Mostly, though, it’s fun to be with people you know, like, and share history with.
