THE ART OF NETWORKING: How to Maximise relationships for fulfilment





    This is a sequel to the last post on THE ART OF NETWORKING where We learnt how to build quality relationships for fulfiling purpose. Please head on here to see that!

    After you've built these relationships,  here's how to maximise them  for fulfilment.

1. Keep in touch 

I'm personally not great at calling people and phone calls aren't the best ways to reach me.
I'm often  locked in on one productive activity or another or just too tired to hold a phone conversation. 
I found out I'll rather text- regular, email or social media and that's because those platforms places no pressure on me to be "hyper entertaining" or what not. 
Therefore, my best keep in touch practice is via text message and emails. 
When you do this with your network of relationships, you will be readily accepted/considered should you need a favor from them


    
 2. Never refer non-tested contacts. 

     Integrity is very important to me. I often tell people, you can only vouch for yourself not others.
So when making referrals for anything, I never refer someone I've not tested and trusted. 
If I have to, I let my contact know that t relate at their own risks (of course, I say it nicely). 
Hahahaha
When people know that they can rely on you, they will maintain their relationship with you


3. Know when to lose money

I love it when I get paid for a job but I love it more when someone does for me, what I can't pay for. Therefore, I try to recognize when it is okay to not take money for the favour I did for a contact. 
Know when to let people go with your money, they most likely would pay in kind one day or they might know someone who you would need and can't afford tomorrow. 
Know when to volunteer. Know when to do free jobs. Know when to charge for your services (This is an entirely different skill I will have to teach some other time).



4. Celebrate people genuinely 

 
Do you know the birthdays of those on your network? No one will reject a birthday favour. So celebrate them on their birthdays, reach out to them during festive seasons or special occasions but make sure this isn't the only time you do.
                I personally celebrate my contacts, monthly, some bi-monthly                  others every now and then based on the category of our                           relationship.

5. Give first and give often

Please don’t make requests when you’re connecting with someone for the first time. Be the giver. Consciously look out for needs to meet in the lives of people. Give first and give often. Trust me, good has a way of coming back to you in a press down, shaking together and running over measure.

WHY DO “LOOSE” GIRLS MARRY FASTER?

“If this life has anything to gain at all, I’ll count it lost if I can’t hear you feel you, cause I need you…” rang my amazing ringtone by Lecrae. I picked up the sleek darling to see who misses me. It was this pretty friend of mine.
Ada (Not real name) and I met at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in our first year. We had a lot in common and she was just my type (whatever that means) LOL. Anyway, I was (and still am) literally and figuratively in love with God and I noticed her heart was committed to God and His standards too.
Well, we graduated four years later and you know how life happens. We haven’t really kept in touch for a while. I heard sometime back that she was engaged and I called to say congratulations.  We talked about how life had been since after school and how we both are still fervently loving and serving the Lord. She said her wedding was three months away and I told her I definitely needed the aso-ebi (A uniform material sold to people who wish to attend an event).

HOW TO AWAKEN YOUR PROPHETIC ABILITY

If you are female and sense prophetic gifts on your life?
Here is a bible based, Christ Centered institution to help you develop and effectively use your prophetic gifts.
In simple terms, Prophecy can be defined as hearing the voice of God and speaking what He says. 
This gift is basically experienced in two ways. Auditory- Where  the one receiving the message hears words, which they then repeat or release  to those to whom one is sent.

Visual- This is referred to as The SEER gifting. Here, the receiver sees a message through some type of picture, which they then release or speak about as led.
These pictures are either received while awake by means of visions, while asleep through dreams or while half awake in trances.
Most prophetic people will experience both aspects at various times, but they tend to have one that is more dominant or frequent.
Can you relate with any of the above?

When I was younger, I had a wish. I wished that I could move from street to street selling to anyone who cared to buy.
I admired people who moved about carrying their wares on their heads because I felt they had the privilege of sightseeing and freedom of movement. 
The only chance I got to see places was when we were in the car on our way to church or school. 
The other times were when we occasionally visited Amusement Park or stopped by the then famous Mr. Biggs for lunch. This was in the 90’s. I soon got bored from seeing the same routes and sights.

I wished for more sightseeing opportunities and freedom of movement. I thought the only way I could get those was to be like the other children or adults who hawked their wares.
One day, my wish came to be! 
My mum came across bananas sold unbelievably cheap. She bought a lot and decided to sell some of…
