Networking SMART to Reinvent

Self-reinventors are excellent at networking with others from whom they can learn.

John Paul Engel, author and founder of Knowledge Capital says, “I co-founded a nonprofit triathlon club that I have grown from 4 to 123 people.  I began volunteering with local groups. One of my mentors taught me the more you help others the better your life becomes. I taught middle school and high school classes, and I helped Big Brothers Big Sisters, Junior Achievement, and our local YMCA.

I started doing work for whatever anyone would pay me. Finally, one of the businesses that I helped turned me on to a client that I have been working with for over two years. Step by step I am rebuilding my business. One of my original clients has come back to work with me. A portion of everything I make goes into my nonprofit work with youth.

I am now teaching as an adjunct professor at a local college.  Finally, I wrote a book that brings advice from some of the most successful people in the world to students, teachers, and parents for free.”

What a great network he has built!  Who do you network with?   How can you use it to your advantage to start your own great reinvention story?
