The launch of my networking improvement journey

with 3 comments

After giving this a lot of thought, I decided to take you on my journey to improve my networking skills. I am new to the virtual assistant profession. I have plenty of business experience. This is my first time being a business owner. On the various association discussion boards the most consistent advice seasoned virtual assistants give the newer virtual assistants is network, network, network. I have a vague idea of what “networking” means. However, I lack the technique and skill to actually network.


Welcome to the launch of my networking improvement journey.


Several months ago Lynne Waymon was the presenter at an online seminar I attended. She is so knowledgeable. Her examples, her way of speaking, her demeanor were inspirational. She opened my eyes to the truth about networking. Immediately I bought her book Make Your Contacts Count.Make Your Contacts Count by Anne Baber & Lynne Waymon


Everyone can afford to brush up on their networking skills.


Grab your copy and read along. You can watch me stumble, blunder and succeed as I learn how to network. Cause let me tell you – I have no CLUE what I am doing!!!

  2. I see that this post is 3 years old, I’m a little intrigued. How did your networking venture go? did you find any books or resources of use?

    • Hi @elvalentino! Thanks for asking. I actually improved my networking skills and increased my contact base.
