I was once the second youngest Officer of what is today Wells Fargo Bank Corporate DC.
My Mentor was near retirement after over 20 years of service. I had him made my equal rather than my worker bee. If he had known that Lucky Strike smokes caused cancer ….
I mention the story only because sometimes one has to be smart rather than greedy.
Today. One does not need to be my Client to be my Network Partner. One does need to be my Network Partner for me to be their Client, Community Resource or Reference.
