I will commence this writeup with a story that I draw from sbic connect, on how a man wrote a book at 40 and something happen on the basis of life that i have preach for over 4 years now, and we at jiokcareers always preach the need for such in our contemporary society, where certificate have been replace with sabificate and on power of valuable relationship.
There was this poor man who wrote a book at the age of 40 and decided to launch it on his Birthday.
He had no money to fund the launch and so he decided to seek help from a millionaire in his community.
He made a visit to the Millionaires home and after they exchanged pleasantries, he told his host what brought him.
The Millionaire told him to take out a piece of paper and pen.
He said, ” I will give you a test. If you pass it, I will give you the money you need and if you fail, I will still give you the money”
He then told him to write down the names of 10 people who could give him 10k each for his book during the launch.
Surprisingly, the man could not write even 3 names.
Now, take a glass of water and let me show you something..
It is not enough to have talent and skills. You must understand the power of building valuable relationship.
It was a wise man that said, your network is directly proportional to your net worth.
