The Farmer vs the Hunter Networker
At CBN we make a clear distinction between two styles of networking, the Hunter and the Farmer.
The Hunter Networker, goes to network meetings hoping to capture a few contacts to buy his products and services. The Hunter Networker is always hunting for himself and it’s hard, low-paying work.
The Farmer Networker knows better! She cultivates mutually rewarding relationships with a few high-quality people and soon she has a strong network of strategic partners passing referrals between them. The Farmer Networker’s networking is effortless, enjoyable, productive and highly rewarding!
Isn't it sobering to realise that ‘civilisation’ only emerged during the Agricultural Revolution when people learned to farm, settle down and create a surplus? And, with a more settled life and abundant food, people had time to think and intelligently explore new possibilities. Humans became civilised.
Plain and simple, hunting has always been a survivalist strategy.
Is it time for a civilised game plan?
If you are sick and tired of the survivalist lifestyle of a Hunter Networker, maybe it time for an intelligent change? Become a Farmer Networker and grow a trusted network of strategic partners working together for mutual success.
It’s time to stop hunting and start intelligently attracting your ideal customers!
Visit a CBN network group and find out how you could effortlessly attract up to R300,000 or more in referral sales in the next year. Imagine that!

CBN believes that small businesses are the economic engine of their local communities; when we flourish, our communities flourish with us. But small businesses are under constant threat from corporate giants that suck money out of our communities but give little back; corporate shareholders get richer while local communities get poorer. CBN believes that, by working together in strategic partnerships, small businesses can overcome these challenges, become more resilient and play a greater role in the well-being of their communities.
