Takes creativity to present a workable idea like relationship capital. My Network Mentor Moshe Weiss at Efirm is developing standards for bringing Relationship Capital into the mainstream.

Virtual World GOALS Could Be
Exploring alliances with companies that have a stake in the success of Relationship Capital. The objective is to work with them in RNIA to develop business models based on Relationship Capital. Some of these business models may result in alliances with Efirm and other companies that are positioning themselves and their products to harness this new industry. American Apparel's foray into Second Life is good anecdotal evidence. Hope this will stimulate more discussion.
