Music Makes a Difference
Now that I have this little project I am working on called, Random Access Radio Listening Party, I am seeing first hand how social networking and Music are a natural combination. I guess you could say Woodstock was the first social networking group that brought people together with music. Thank goodness for the internet which makes sharing music with people a lot easier than slopping around in the mud on a farm in New York.
Music, like golf, brings out a different part of a person. You may see a hardcore senior executive who has been around the block a few times with the battles that are waged in the board rooms, but when you turn on a CD player with Bob Seger playing the salty old aristocrat starts putting on a clinic on how to play Air Guitar. Music allows people to relax.
Music brings out memories of times you had when things were not as tough as they are now and we ALL could use some of those good memories to stave off the bad ones we are generating with the situation today’s world is in. But, I am not here to talk politics unless listening to solid music with solid friends is political then you can place me to the far right on that issue making for a FUN time.
Golf + Music = FUN²
But back to the golf which I also hold in high regard as an activity that promotes social networking. There are not many golfers I know who do not like music. Recently I have seen where music playing afterwards at the 19th hole is preferred before watching the Golf Channel. Guess there is something to the music an social networking thing.
When it comes time to really put the wheels on social media there really has not been anything else I have found that brings people together better than Music and GOLF. I suggest you try both before giving up on Social Networking as a means for business networking.
Let me know how I can help.
