Join Jen Julius as she interviews Dr. Ivan Misner, Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of BNI. They will be discussing the unknown relationship that exists between authentic networking and authentic health. When networking, do you only talk to those who can give you the most in return? Do you only give your business card to someone who you will bring you a ton of referrals? Do you only give referrals if you know you’ll get them in return? If this sounds like you, you are doing it all wrong.
