The Power of Your Network


Tom Corley boats - crop

According to my research 79% of successful entrepreneurs network five or more hours each month. Networking with others in your industry is critical to gaining the expertise you need to succeed. The ability to be mentored by experienced individuals shortens the learning curve inherent in any new venture, saving you time and money. Being able to pick the brains of those who have already made the costly mistakes and know what to do and what not to do is smart. The more you network with others in your industry, the greater the likelihood you will avoid the pitfalls and traps new entrepreneurs experience.

It is far easier to network today than ever before. Digital networks such as Facebook groups, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google and blog sites offer an efficient and convenient alternative to formal in-person networking groups. Plus many digital networking sites, like Interactive Minds host interactive networking events without the need to travel.

For those who feel uncomfortable schmoozing with others face to face, interactive networking enables you to participate without the discomfort. It’s easy to join these groups no matter what country you live in.

For those who need human interaction, there are many networking groups right within your community that are specific to your industry. makes it easy to find a local group within your area of expertise. You can even create your own Meetup group if you like and invite others to join.

Successful entrepreneurs surround themselves with a network of experts they can tap to help them anticipate or overcome obstacles that are inherent in any entrepreneurial pursuit. If you’re a neophyte entrepreneur, networking will help you survive and thrive. In time, you’ll find two or three individuals within your network who become your informal board of directors, helping guide you along your path towards success.

Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit,, India TV, Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money,,, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider,, and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.

    Whether you are rich or poor, you will never be “happy” in this world. So-called ” happiness” is just a temporary absence of misery. You cannot stay happy, not possible in this world. The best you can do is some level of contentment, knowing full well there will be ups and downs in that too, that just have to be managed. This be rich and be happy theory is nonsence and it gives the population false hope, and worse, the sense that there is something wrong with them if they are not rich and “happy.” There is a place where you can be happy eternally, as the spirit soul is eternal, and when united again with God, the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna, in a mood of sincere service, happiness will ensue. We have fallen to the material realm, (this earth and other planets in the material universes) due to wanting to do our own thing separate from God, we want to be like God, to be God, and all those that are here are envious of God and want to enjoy independently of Him. The population want to be masters of all they survey, God’s position, and not servants.
    This is the bitter pill no one wants to swallow, but is the truth and the reality of the situation we find ourselves in. Those who are “money rich” is due to their karma this life round, but not every rich person is “happy” , and when their good karma bank account runs out, again there will be absence of material wealth. You only have to study the “Rothchilds” family to know that material wealth does not provide happiness. What about the Kennedy family, not only wealth but prestige and fame. Misery after misery, their wealth has not saved them from misery. You are irresponsible and exploiting the ignorant population who know no better.
    All Glories to the Supreme Lord Sri Krisna, Reality the Beautiful. The Emporium of all Rasas.
    The Protector of the Sincere Devotees.

    “Live a Life of Service and you will never have to serve in this life.”
