I realized I’m a professional networker. I think that’s a good thing.

Here’s a breakdown of my day:

– Sent about 100 emails and social media messages to potential cloud candidates on behalf of Microsoft.
– Had an impromptu conference with my daughter’s kindergarten teacher
– Invited 500 people to a Portland business networking website I’m working on.
– Played around with some Twitter tools I am developing
– Drove to Portland, texted rap lyrics to a couple of my boys (not while driving)
– Exchanged about 40 emails/IMs with my partners at Microsoft
– Getting ready to attend Portland Seed Fund launch
– If time permits, I’ll roll over to the ERE HR Meetup for last call

Typically I don’t have so many in-person events, but I estimate I’ll send/receive almost a thousand communications today (probably way more than that, if you count the auto Twitter stuff).  Plus I have a weird name, so most of the communciations will be acted upon.

So although I introduce myself as a recruiter and entrepreneur, what I really am is a professional networker.
