    What a perfect analogy! I’ve often wondered how people can make any headway trying to manage such large contact pools, and what is the point? Probably a very small percentage are of any real value and these should be nurtured, and the rest should be “weeded”. Quantity vs. quality.

    Ironically, I know someone who has thousands of Facebook “friends” (are they really “friends” or just cyber-contacts?) but he is still isolated. Quantity means nothing in this case.

    I too very much appreciate the analogy. So right now I am going out to tend to my lawn and this evening will start (again) to catch up on tending my network. I want both to be there when I need them.

    Well said Sherri. Put differently, networking takes work, which is why they call it netWORKing.

  5. Thanks, Michael!

    The quality of your interaction with your network will ultimately determine your net worth !!
