Given the way we are seeing more and more young people turn to texting instead of calling, and frankly, the number of older people who would also rather get a text as opposed to a phone call, this may make sense.
You already know that networking is a huge key to success when it comes to career growth or building any business, but chances are you don’t love to do it. Instead of meeting a bunch of strangers or recent acquaintances for an endless series of coffee dates, you might prefer resorting to your typical means of daily communication–texting–if only that were appropriate and effective for professional purposes. Well actually, it can be.
For the record, I’m not much for talking on the phone either, but I love getting texts.
