Have you purchased your ticket to Total Networking Seattle yet?  If not, let me make it easy for you.  Here is the link to read all about this networking event that is bringing together business women from Portland, Oregon to Blaine, Washington for the purposes of learning, connecting, and advancing business.  Social Networking Expert Mari Smith will be keynoting, and her session is not to be missed.

Now, not every networking event is a winner, and Score More Sales Founder Lori Richardson offers a pretty compelling blog post in this regard today.  She suggests that people practice a little kindness, and the examples she notes from her own experience will curl the hair on the back of your neck.

I believe the concept that the rising tide lifts all boats, so set fabulous intentions about the great people you'll meet at Total Networking Seattle or the other great events you will enjoy, and remember to be kind and gracious.

And, if you have an interest in doing business with great people on a cruise ship to Alaska this August 8, 2010, check this out.

Back Story on this Cruise and How It Relates to Networking:

I had the good fortune to meet up with Action Plan Marketing Founder Robert Middleton at his Info Guru Summit in late January.  He and I first met online at  www.Biznik.com.  It started with a post on a forum.  A telephone call followed,  A teleseminar was then scheduled that earned rave reviews.

And then, Robert brought together about two dozen amazing leaders in their field for the purposes of exploring the concept of winning collaborations, and he invited me to be among them.

Already some wonderful joint ventures have taken shape as a direct result of this three-day session.  In fact, check out what Tad Hargrave of Radical Marketing has shared with his “Marketing to Hippes” list in connection with this week's anniversary sale.   Sales of the Bye-Bye Boring Bio Action Guide have been flowing in from all over Canada since yesterday as a result.  Tad and I met at Middleton's event.

I can only imagine what additional magic will manifest as a result of spending a week on a cruise ship with Robert Middleton and the amazing independent business professionals he serves so well.

Remember, the rising tide lifts all boats, and this boat leaves for Alaska on August 8.  Join us!
