The Most Valuable Part Of Your Phone Is Not Your Phone

Most people purchase rubber cases to protect their phones against falls, transparent covers to protect the screen against scratches and in some cases product warranties to replace the phone in case of theft. New technology now even allows you to track your phones when stolen or lost from a remote location! The irony however is that for an entrepreneur, the most valuable part of your phone is not the phone itself but rather the contacts on the phone.
If people spent half as much time as they did protecting their phones contact list as they did protecting the phone…they would see a serious growth in their network. But instead they get distracted by the materialistic value of their phones and forget the value of a strong and large network.
For the past 10 years I have been backing up my phones data on multiple platforms, my computer, an external hard drive,
pieces of paper and even my email account. Over the course of those 10 years my contact list has grown to over 3000 contacts and has remained. However, my phones have not, some of them have fallen into water, some just stopped working and some were let go simply because a bigger and better thief had walked by phone had come out. But because my contact list is always backed up and thus grown in size I have been able to meet the most amazing people and make connections with people that I would ordinarily have forgotten about. And in the midst of the thousands of calls I have made over the years…I am yet to meet anyone on the receiving end of the call that remarks at how amazing the phone I am calling with is…instead they are interested in the content of the phone call itself! Don’t get distracted by the awesomeness of your phone but rather by the awesomeness of the contacts on your phone…do all you can to protect those contacts!
