From the Networking With Michelle podcast:
J. Kelly Hoey is an acclaimed business columnist and networking expert and author of Build Your Dream Network. As a connector, and networking expert, Kelly has been lauded from Forbes (“1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship”) to Fast Company (“25 Smartest Women On Twitter”). She has a column on Inc.com, blogs on myturnstone.com (as well as Medium and jkellyhoey.co) and tweets frequently (@jkhoey). Kelly has appeared as an investor panelist on CNBC’s Power Pitch and is the host of the BroadMic podcast.
As much as I love sharing the message on the importance of networking and relationships, I love learning about it from others. One thing I learned from Kelly is that diversity goes beyond race and gender. Our network should also consist of a mix of psychographics and demographics. This interview is an absolute value add: The mindset, activity, and process of networking. Are introverts or extroverts better networkers? How we can “Stop committing random acts of networking?” Diversity of networking from women, mentorship, and a lot more!
Quote: “Sometimes your network sees more in you than yourself.” J. Kelly Hoey
