I am not a good networker. I don't like to go out of my way to introduce myself, I don't feel the need to meet new people, I certainly don't like being in a room full of strangers whose only goal is to introduce themselves to someone new. Sometimes, when I go to the occasional networking event, I feel like a diver in a shark tank with chum underpants. I have met enough financial planner and real estate brokers. But I have found a method that works for me and I'm passing it on to all the non-networkers. I call it, barnacle networking. It's classier than "parasite networking" or "suckerfish networking".

However, no one person is blindly positive. As humans, we always find things that need improvements.

The point is to get a person who doesn't always agree with you. Having a dissenting voice allows you to see other sides of a situation. Even if they are wrong 99% of the time, the often will highlight areas where your idea may have problems.
