My idea of networking: observe

Who recommended: Lynne Waymon

What I am reading: Make Your Contacts Count (Networking Know-How For Business and Career Success) by Anne Baber and Lynne Waymon

Where in the book: page 50

Why I am reading: Learning how to network. Cause believe me, I have no CLUE!

Which quote: “Whatever the size of your networking effort, you’ll come to many ChoicePoints along the way. These are opportunities to make strategic decisions about what you will say or do.”

How this quote adjusted my thinking:

Before reading this book, I never had a strategic plan. I did not know I had networking tools. The only preparation was done in the travel time to the networking event. While at the event, I spent a lot of time observing. Other networkers lead the way of discussion and the offering of information.

In this chapter, I look forward to developing my strategic plan.
