When we make a decision about how to spend our time we’re always looking for the return. My two years as part of the Collaberex community has yielded a return that may seem unconventional, but no less valuable. Jonathan Rosen runs his collaborative organization with a strong personal touch, and demands we do the same. I’ve met people who’ve referred my business, and I’ve hired other members to help my business grow. This is the high value return I hope to achieve in all my engagements. As Jonathan will tell you, don’t call it “networking;” it’s so much more.
