Success is not simply a question of what you know (or how hard you work) or who you have the good fortune of bumping into. No! In a hyper-connected world, success is all about who knows what you know. This is one of the network building truths I’ve learned from my own career transformation – a career that evolved in ways I never imagined.
My entire career story is a networked one. Networking is the only explanation for the journey from my first career (lawyer) to being invited to join non-profit and startup boards, to dine with Malala, to write a book and so much more. I’ve tweeted, linked-in’d, meetup’d, blogged, followed-up and connected into a vast array of ridiculously exciting opportunities.
My networked experiences are the reason why I wrote Build Your Dream Network.
If I can do it, you can too.
