If you don’t have these relationships, what can you do to form them?

Second, let me introduce you to Mr. You. Mr. You is an expert in your field. You take your assets, 10 years in operations and MBA, and apply that to health care. You begin to write articles sharing how you think health care operations could improve.

You blog.

You have something to say, and you say it to the right people.

By leveraging LinkedIn and other social media tools you slowly become an “obvious expert.” Soon, you’ll find people beginning to ask you for advice.
