If you are curious about how your own personal social network is working to help you accomplish your goals, here are a few easy questions to get you started.
How many people do you consider to be your close, personal friends?
How often do you talk to most of them? Not email, not voicemail, but real time conversations.
Besides your spouse or partner, who are the two people you would reach out to in times of need?
How many of your close friends know each other?
In the past six months, how many times have you called on your network to help you with:
Find a job
Help another friend
Get some information you need
Get an opinion about a product or service
How often do your friends reach out to you for help?
Do you find that you make new friends easily?
Answers to these questions can get you started on taking active control of your social network.
