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 206

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

Which quote: “Make the most of you memberships-Jump right in.”

How this quote adjusted my thinking: I am a reserved person. Typically, after joining a group, I would observe for a while. After taking Lynne Waymon’s advice, I have to tell you, the value of my membership in groups increased dramatically. I started looking for ways to act as a “host instead of a guest.” I also attempted “to give myself a job.” Low and behold, I found it much easier to approach people, a lot easier to have something to talk about and I felt my confidence in myself shine through. Again, this one piece of advice has served me well.
