Network Like An Introvert

By January 2, 2019 January 14th, 2019 No Comments

One of my networking discoveries when writing Build Your Dream Network? Introverts make the best networkers. Really. In a hyper-connected world, people who are more deliberate, focused, purposeful and considerate build better connections. Those attributes are more closely associated with a self and situation aware person (hmmm, introvert) than the brash, work-the-room-life-of-the-party type.

If in doubt – read Build Your Dream Network or this post I wrote for Inc.com highlighting one of the #BYDN networking roadmaps or this article in Business News Daily.
