A seasoned networker knows the real meaning of networking — being organized, efficient, effective, and, of course, work the event to its fullest. Attending networking groups after so many years can tire and drain anyone’s excitement. Especially since these situations are not social events.

The way it works is pretty simple: Each machine on a network is identified by some address. In this tutorial we will talk about tcp/ip networking, so by network address we mean an IP address. (like 192.168.4.4) Apart from the IP address that specifies a machine, each machine has a number of ports that allow handling multiple connections simultaneously.
A couple of years ago, I was scheduled to attend one of my Business Referral Exchange breakfast meetings in a location about 45 minutes away from my home. I’m so used to getting up early to attend breakfast meetings, that I’m rather like a fireman ready to slide down the pole and jump on the truck. My clothes are laid out the night before.

Is networking helping you bring in the new clients you want? If you are like most independent professionals and small business owners, you put hard work into getting your name out there and distribute your business card wherever you go. You may even attend a weekly or monthly networking group or occasional business conference where people share leads. And like most people, your time and effort isn’t generating a steady stream of new business.
