51+ Networking Mistakes
To Avoid When Networking! Stop Wasting Time, Losing Money & Start Networking Like A Real Rock Star!!!
by Bart Smith & Noa Schecter
For those of us who love to network and those who may lean more towards the shy side or even nervous when you go to any networking event, it’s a “human factor” when we say we all don’t network as well as we could.
From time to time, we’re bound to make a networking mistake and ask ourselves, “Did I say the right thing?”, “Whoops, that didn’t come out right …”, or “Oh, I forgot to bring/do/say this …”
That’s our point, and that’s why we wrote this book.
Inside 51+ Networking Mistakes , the authors, Bart Smith and Noa Schecter, go into several networking mistakes to avoid:
PART I: BEFORE YOU GO NETWORKING
PART II: WHILE YOU ARE NETWORKING
PART III: AFTER YOU GO NETWORKING
Noa and Bart go over all of these topics in the book and much more:
… what kind of marketing materials to bring!
… how to prepare for the event!
… what to bring to the event!
