Networking

December 23rd, 2010 Posted in Design, Life, Sonny_B

[tweetmeme]I just got my new business cards in the mail. They came out pretty decent. I’m already thinking of my next design for the next 1000 cards.

Speaking of which, I wanted to quickly talk about the importance of networking:
I know you’ve heard the cliche phrase “It’s not what you know, but who you know”. I believe that this saying is true to some extent. Studies show that over 60% of progression in a career is related to networking rather than simply performance. I believe this could be also applied to musicians, and artist as well. With that being said, you can’t just go around talking and have nothing to show for it.

Now a days networking has become easier with the creation of all of these online social networks. (Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc) Each of them are different and cater to different groups and  interest, so take advantage of them. But still remember, nothing can take the place of in-person networking.

One Love,
