You didn’t learn it at school, or at the office. Would you believe your mother?
Networking is more than shaking hands and giving out business cards. Forget about the endless networking skills you may have learned at the office. We just have to put the few lessons mother taught us into practice. As a kid, we were always in a hurry to find something better. Our mothers taught us patience.
If you’re in a hurry you miss the value that can be built taking time with building relations in networking. Establishing a relationship by taking time, gives you a solid framework in networking building.
Your mother worked hard as an example. This is one of the better examples in networking she gave you. That’s why it is called networking, not sit work. For networking to be successful you have to work hard and put out the effort.
Remember her telling you to share your things with others? Some of our best resources are time, money, and information we are willing to give to the relationship. They appreciate us when we are willing to give to the relationship.

She always made you clean up after yourself. In networking, follow-up is required. Whether it’s a promise to meet someone, or just a thank you is one of the most important lessons of networking. These life lessons we learned from the mother during childhood are a solid basis for strong networking skills.
Thank you, mother, for all your help.

A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
All the rooms were taken when the soldier got into town. After pleading with the desk clerk, the clerk remarked. “Well, I do have a double room with only one occupant, but to tell you the truth he snores so loudly that people in an adjoining room have complained. I am not sure it would be worth it to you”. “No problem.” The tired army guy assured him, “I will take it’.
When he came down for breakfast the next morning the clerk asked, “How did you sleep?” “Never better”, replied the soldier. The desk clerk was impressed. “No problem with the other guy snoring”, the clerk asked?” “No I shut him up in no time”, explained the soldier. “How did you manage that?” asked the clerk.
“Well, he was already in bed, snoring away, when I walked into the room, so I gave him a kiss on the cheek”, explained the soldier”. “Then, I whispered in his ear Good night beautiful, and he sat up all night watching me.
The tip on unplugging your computer from the wall outlet during a thunderstorm was sound advice. And we’re coming to the season when thunderstorms become more frequent.

ONLINE RENTAL FRAUD
June, August, September, January are competitive months for rental suites.
There are a lot of fraudulence ads being placed free on Craigslist etc. Crooks ply on the shortage of apartments by placing ads on these sites. When someone answers they are informed owner had to go out of the country for a funeral or whatever. They had no one that they could have left the keys with so the apartment could be checked.
Now comes the kicker. If you’re interested in renting the apartment, send $900.00 as the damage deposit, and $1200.00 for the first month’s rent and the key would be courier to them.
There is a limited supply of apartments on the market, so this is a huge target for scammers.
Don’t fall for this scam. People need to do their homework, physically see the apartment, talk to the owners’ and have a written contract.
WARNING, CAR JACKERS IN MALL
CST. Eric Doran #656 Chatham – Kent Police Court Services
Here’s the latest tactic by car thieves.
Heads up, everyone! Please keep this circulating. You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside. You start the engine and shift into reverse when you look into the rear-view mirror to back out of your parking space. You notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So, you shift into Park, unlock your doors and jump out of your car to remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view.
When you reach the back of your car, that is when the car-jackers appear out of nowhere, jumps into your car and take off. They practically mow you down as they speed off in your car. And guess what, ladies? I bet your purse is still in the car. So now the carjacker has your car, your home address, your money, and your keys. Your home and your whole identity are now compromised!
Men, you too are at risk. You can say goodbye to your briefcase, and if you’re like many guys, who keep their wallet in the glove compartment, with your driver’s license, credit cards, plus.
If you see a piece of paper stuck to your back window, just drive away, remove the paper later and be thankful that you read this e-mail. I hope you will forward this to friends and family, especially to women. A purse contains all kinds of personal information and identification documents, and you certainly do NOT want this to fall into the wrong hands.
Phishing still catches millions of persons who give out their personal information, believing the e-mail they received was from a bank, PayPal, taxation branch, or some other Government
Department. Further, instead of typing in the URL supplied by the Phisher, they just clink on it. Just because the URL has the proper heading doesn’t mean it is going to a legit URL. In phishing they have it redirected if you click on the URL and they get your personal information.
We trust our Government to safeguard the information we give them. But did you know that the government is among the biggest sources of ID leaks and that penalties for ID theft are rarely imposed on those who are negligent?
