Have you done something helpful lately for someone in your network?
Networking is not a one-way street, nor should it be. I’ve written before about networking, and a request from one of my readers last week prompted me to question how much I’d done lately for others in my various networks.

I’d like to challenge you to take a bit of time to also offer up a bit of tangible professional support for those in your network. How? There are a number of options, but why not begin with carving out five or 10 minutes a day for the next few days to pop in to your contacts’ LinkedIn profiles?
Learn a bit more about your fellow professionals, check out the skills in which they take pride … and endorse them for two or three to which you can legitimately attest.
