I did "people" too!
When you're deep in the matrix [aka looking for your next freelance/perm gig online] you often forget how important is to have people around you. And when I'm saying people, I'm thinking about any kind of people: dump, old and wise, old and drunk, young, very young -the ones who
you just want to punch- neurotic, sweet, creative or not.
I found myself in a situation where apart from the emails, LinkedIn and Google I had no one to talk to in order to start my own little professional circle. You know that guy, who knows a gal, who probably will know another guy. SHOCKING. So, I did some calls and I found mine. After a 3hour coffee we shared ideas, he took all the valid information he needed -including that I LOVE POOP STORIES- and the game is on.
It's only matter of time to see where all this will take me, but I had forgotten that at the end of the day is all about people power. If you have them, you got the fuel. If not, you are probably writing a post in your own blog which no one reads it.
And this is how is done!POW!
