I was talking with a mentor when he suggested something cool: keep a database of everyone you meet.
Give each person’s contact info
And give each person a few tags. Tags like what languages they speak, their strengths, their goals, their relevant personality traits, and their location.
Do this, and you’ll always be able to find good writers to run your work by. Or a friend in a new town you’re in. Or a partner on a project. Or someone to talk philosophy with. Or a person you can help this week. Or someone who can help you.
And so that’s what I’m doing. Making a database of my network.
