This is the Excel file I use to update, keep track of, and stay in touch with my network! I have met many great people in many different places, and this spreadsheet has helped me build and maintain my relationships with them.
Use this template to suit your individual needs, but promise me you won’t think of networking as a way to get something you want (or think you want), but rather as a way to build and maintain authentic relationships, whether professional or personal. Please?
Also, in my experience, it’s better to have good, real relationships with ten people than to have shallow relationships with a thousand.
If you prefer Google Sheets to Excel, all you have to do is save the Excel file to your Google Drive, right-click it, and open it with Google Sheets.
