Short and Happy Guide to Networking

Short and Happy Guide to Networking

by Desiree Jaeger-Fine




What if someone told you that you don’t have to go to networking receptions? What if someone told you that you don’t need an elevator pitch? What if someone told you to stop obsessing over your personal brand?

What if someone told you to forget everything you have ever heard about networking?

This book will share the only thing that truly matters….

The need to network has been preached to exhaustion while simultaneously made incomprehensible. This Short & Happy Guide eliminates the hoopla the popular press and others have created around a behavior that is as old as our society. The term networking is an invention—building relationships is deeply human. This book cuts through the clutter and outlines how everyone can build relationships in a way that is not only comfortable but enjoyable. No ploys or stunts, no templates or arbitrary rules. And if you don’t want to go to networking receptions, you really don’t have to. You can still—and will—be an exceptional networker.

This book is a great guide to networking. Also, it is very encouraging because we learn that networking is in our genes, so with some practice, we can all become great networkers. This was really what I needed to hear, because just as the author, I prefer to stay at home to read a good book over going to events where you should network. I could relate to everything that was written about resistance and not wanting to go out to network. However, Desiree provides you with easily applicable advice to turn around this resistance. The author describes experiences of her own, which makes the book sometimes very funny. The writing style is very accessible and comprehensible. The guide was short: I finished it in one evening, I just could not put it down… Also, the book was happy, because it made me happy and confident that also I, a rather shy person, not destined to be a master networker, actually could become an excellent networker, just like each and every one of us...
