Do you have time to meet important contacts in your network and find new ones? As a business leader, the answer should be an immediate yes. But your schedule doesn't always match that ideal. Just look at your calendar right now: It's likely filled with meetings, presentations and conference calls. You don't have the space to fit in a trade show or conference to network with other leaders.
It could just be you're looking at the situation all wrong. Remember: If you can't find the time, you make it for yourself. You must learn to open up your schedule so you're available to network.
