J. Kelly Hoey - Build Your Dream Network

So…I wrote a book about networking.

  1. Is it perfect? No.
  2. Is there stuff I’d change it in? Hell yes!
  3. Does it provide a mindset and framework to get your networking on track? I think so…and so does the reader who sent this note:

I’ve been re-reading BYDN, and this morning I wrote down THIRTEEN new ideas for networking actions and initiatives. No joke!

And…receiving this email…was a personal reminder and serious kick-in-the-butt motivator…I did a hard, ambitious thing before, and it is time to really get on with doing it again.

Though, better this next time, much better.

Now, after that little interlude, the ???? from my inbox:

  • Small Groups, Well Organized (Seth’s Blog)
  • December 6. Conversation with Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, Harvard-trained and published neuroanatomist (Collective[i] Forecast) and if you’ve not watched her remarkable TED talk…what have you been watching?
  • The Tower Standing Watch Over Sixteenth Street (Diplomatica)
  • What is your secret ingredient to unlimited freedom? Take the quiz. (A Backyard Hiker)
  • Alain de Botton on the Qualities of a Healthy Mind (The Marginalian) and while I’m at it, I recommend binging Alain’s 3-part series The Perfect Home based on his book The Architecture of Happiness (episode 1, episode 2 and episode 3)
  • November 15 – How To Make A Career Pivot – a webinar presented by the Tory Burch Foundation
  • Explore a bioluminescent world of cellular life via cutting-edge microscopy (Aeon) and one extraordinarily wonderous and awe-inspiring video from Aeon, deserves a second: The ambitious project to document every fruit in watercolour | Pomological
  • Shout-out to the fab Janet Hanson for this gem: The ex-Goldman partner who’s singing and dancing about her retirement (AFR)
