How to build a network

How to build a network of like-minded people? They say the “how” becomes easy, once you know the “why”.

So let’s start with the why…

WHY learn how to build a network?

Let’s look at some of the most compelling reasons:


“You become the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” ~ Jim Rohn

This implies that you want to make sure you surround yourself with good, quality, and yes, like-minded people. That way you will inspire one another to be the best you can be. You will motivate one another to become more, do more, and have more. And yes, as you grow you will always strive to include people in your network that are better than you; people who will inspire you to live up to your full potential. Avoid people in your network who will drag you down. You most definitely do not want to be the smartest person in your network. If you are, you can only adjust downwards….and that is not successful.


“The richest people in the world, look for and build networks” ~ Robert Kiyosaki

The reason is quite simple. You can do more collectively as a group, than you ever can on your own. Networks allow you to tap into leverage. Jean Paul Getty said it best when he said, “I will much rather earn 1% on the efforts of 100 people than 100% on my own efforts alone.”


“If you have a strong network of like-minded people who know, like, and trust you, you can lose all your worldly possessions and it won’t bother you a bit.”

This is a bold statement. Think for a moment. Imagine you lose everything, but you have this amazing group of people who know, like, and trust you. If you understand the concept of leverage, and you know how to tap into magic of network marketing, you can regain all you have lost and more in no time at all. How? By providing your network with value. There are hundreds of good networking systems available that allows you to provide amazing value to each person in your network. Zig Zigler said it best when he said, “if you just help enough other people get what they want, you will inevitable get everything that what you want.”


How to build a network?

Okay, now that we know why, let’s look at the how.

Make a list. Then grow your list. It’s that simple.

Make a list of all the people you know. Then categorise the list into three groups:

The first group consists of people who are like minded and already know, like, and trust you.

The second group are people who do not yet know, like, and trust you, but you regard them as good quality like-minded people that you would like to have in your network.

The third group of people are those people who are not like-minded. They do not share your positive outlook on life. They are the ones that would rather put you down, than lift you up. They are the ones who make it their life’s mission to discourage you, rather than to encourage you. They are most likely some of your closest family. You do not want these people in your network. They might be family so you can’t just avoid them altogether. Find a way to limit your association with them. Be polite.


How to build a network that lasts?

The people in the first group, are already in your network. Stay in constant contact with them. Nurture your relationship with them. Build, inspire, and motivate them. Supply them with value. Give them reasons to want to associate with you.

The people in the second group, must be your focus. Supply them with value. Give them an opportunity to get to know, like, and trust you. This is where you will actively build new relationships and once they know, like, and trust you, you add them to the first group.

The stronger your relationships with the people in your network, the stronger your network will be.

  • Build your list.
  • Constantly work your relationship with those people on your list.
  • Keep building the list.
