A thoroughly comprehensive toolkit to help you develop all the networking skills you want to know, practice, and utilize. The art of effective networking is absolutely vital to building solid business relationships and to finding, growing, and keeping your business and enhancing your life.

You will find the answers to important networking questions and topics, with advice on how to achieve your goals within each, such as: How do I start a conversation with someone I find intimidating? How do I ask tough questions tactfully? How do I start and exit a conversation at internal and external business events? How do I “network” with someone I may not like, but who is key in the department or industry? What are some of the topics to avoid? What are examples of great opening lines, icebreakers, and small talk when I’m networking? How do I follow-up? How do I establish and create advocates and referral opportunities? How do I know when I’m networking? Where can I find a systematic approach to networking? How can I keep all of my contacts organized and easy to reach? How can I continue to find, keep, and grow my business all the time? How do I develop my own "self-brand"?

You can read the whole book or pick and choose topics as you need them as a lifelong reference. As Andrea says: "You already have the tools inside you — it’s just a matter of developing a system and sticking to it."
