Different from the typical male mentality of hoarding information, women of today are collecting information, putting it to use, and passing it on: learning-teaching, learning-teaching.
Even competitors are teaching trade secrets, because you never know who can help you, who can open a door for you. And you know what’s interesting? This information generosity is not slowing us down, holding us up, or hurting us in anyway. In fact, it’s helping. We are learning new methods from teaching, looking at our concepts, and methods from a more rounded, introspective, multi-dimensional perspective that is actually enhancing and broadening our overall vision.
So don’t hoard your contacts. Share them. You never know when your good deed, friendly information exchange, or helping another chick out will come back to give you your own career boost.
