How many people do you have a relationship with?

Connection Nodes

As we go about our business we like to think that we have a small but select group of people in our network.

How wrong could we be as we think further out everyone knows more people than we think.

Take a look at the network connections chart above you will be shocked to know that even if we try really hard and like to think that we get to know most people we come in contact with look at the numbers in a room of 30 people (normal for a Chamber or Breakfast event) we will talk to about 4 or 5 but if we do the calculations there are 435 relationships we could have but don’t. Why is that?
