Wed, 25 Nov 2015 01:28:28 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: HawaiiRealty http://chris.pirillo.com/2011/06/04/you-cant-buy-and-sell-your-friends/#comment-114271 Mon, 06 Jun 2011 19:47:00 +0000 http://c.pirillo.com/?p=26298#comment-114271 Excellent post Chris.  The value is on stretching our boundaries and creating more relationships that lead us into uncharted waters.  i think reciprocity is silly if you really are interested in using this game as a way to have fun, leverage social media and expand your horizons.  

Wishing you much success on your trip….

At least on Linkedin I have recommendations.  Find me on Linkedin and listen to what these others have said about how and what I do. That’s stronger than a cash reward any day.

That said, I still believe the best way to attract new investments isn’t by asking directly. BE a good investment. 😉 Participate, and people will notice.

So while a player of your caliber doesn’t need to reciprocate actions as frequent because of your well established prior network, I’m not sure the same goes for less seasoned players. People wouldn’t be as quick to drop your shares because they’e at least heard of you. But there is no reason for anyone to be so sensitive about the selling of shares, it’s just part of the game and a call to step up!
