Recently, I've been able to leverage a lot of my contacts for JVs and it reminded me of how important it is to keep track of people and how YOU can provide value for THEM. If you keep records of people, then you don't have to be a super-mega-ninja-pirate-master networker . Just search for "copywriter" in your contacts and suggest that copywriter to the person that you've just me that needs one. Both people will be appreciative and might even help you find a project/client in the future.

I recently landed a client after I was referred by someone that I helped to find writing gigs online a year ago (I actually only provided them with an eBook with writing sites that they could sign up for)! We weren't in contact or anything like that. When the project opened, they just thought of me first because of the help that I gave them and....BAM....I had it . All after a year of no contact.

It's important to note what people's passions are, what they are good at, and what it is that they might need. That guy that you met that owns a painting company (but doesn't have any money for you to sell your services to)......down the line you might be able to connect him with another person that needs his services. Who knows, at that point the painter might be interested in working with you to bring in even more customers. There's strength in being the person that helps first and helps without asking for anything (and without any expectations).

I think that the same is true about life in general. Help people reach their dreams and you would be surprised how many will find a way to help you do the same (without you even having to ask for it).
