Home business owners suffer from the confusion between Networking and Prospecting. It's a common dilemma and quite easily remedied.
Beginner marketers have only one thing in mind, Networkers are constantly seeking to meet as many people in their neighborhood, the home business industry. Your goal is to meet as many people as possible in your space, your niche.
It could be health and wellness or vacation packages. It doesn't matter. What does matter is to be in the places where there are as many people that share your common interest.
When you find these places, and you will find many, get to know as many people as possible.
When you do this day in and day out, you start to create a massive network. It's also important to understand that not everyone you meet is going to be a prospect.
The catch is everyone you know and meet knows someone that is. Did you get that?
So the goal is to just meet people, network.
