10 Secrets of a Master Networker

This may be the new millenium's version of Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends & Influence People.

From the Inc. article: "Keith Ferrazzi needs two PalmPilots to keep track of all his contacts, people like Bill Clinton and Michael Milken. But there's far more to cracking the inner circle of the power elite than just taking names."

I've pulled out the "10 secrets":
  1. Don't network just to network.
  2. Take names.
  3. Build it before you need it.
  4. Never eat alone.
  5. Be interesting.
  6. Manage the gatekeeper. Artfully.
  7. Always ask.
  8. Don't keep score.
  9. Ping constantly.
  10. Find anchor tenants. Feed them.
