Get your minds out of the gutter. This is the mile high club for bloggers. I’m writing this post from 30,000 feet on a flight from Las Vegas to Atlanta. This is just awesome. I can’t wait until every flight has this available. Not to mention, I’m watching the Olympics on NBC at the same time. The US just won gold in 4 man bobsled.

I just did a speed test and it’s showing 0.97 Mbps download and 0.25 Mbps upload. Not bad for most of the things that I do. I might have to go test out Youtube and Hulu and some things like that and see how it does. Amazing!

Oh yeah, and the best part is that I got it for free. That a baby!!

Only problem is that now I won’t get any sleep on this red eye flight. Tomorrow’s going to be rough, but it will be so worth it.

Networking

I’ve been doig a lot of networking lately. What’s been interesting is the more that I network the greater ability and the more opportunities I have to network.

For example, I just won this little business plan competition. From that I was able to network with some really interesting people that I believe can really provide me and my budding business some amazing benefit. The next step is to turn the talk into action.

As I’ve talked with people about my business I think the one thing that differentiates me from some other people is that I just consistently hammer away at something. Networking is an example of that. You have to just keep going out and seeing what you can make of the experience. Plus, you have to be laser focused on why you’re trying to network. Not that you can’t and shouldn’t talk about them and their needs, but always keep in mind how your business could benefit bot people. Then, you’re getting the best of both worlds. You’re focusing on them, but still finding ways to build your business as well.
