The other type of person Gladwell considered important to your network are connectors: people who know lots of people and keep in touch with them.
They need to know you so they can introduce you to other people.
My friend Meaghan is a connector. She makes friends while trying on hats in Paris. I met her at a Health Spa nearly 20 years ago. Her dinner parties are always fascinating, because not only does she collect people, she’s exceptionally good at judging what each one will find interesting in the others. I’ve never been to her place for a dinner party without meeting someone new, interesting and entertaining. Her dinner parties are rarely fewer than 10 people.
Pay attention because you already know a connector. Get to know them better.
