Networking is a skill. As with any skill, you will get better at it with practice. To have personal curb appeal, it is vital that you get over the stuff about networking that bothers you. If you are scared of meeting people or if you’re worried about having nothing to say or becoming tongue-tied, role-play with a friend until you feel more confident.
The more you exercise your networking muscles, the stronger they get and the easier networking becomes. Networking is hard when you feel you HAVE to, and so easy when you feel you WANT to.
Attitudes are contagious.
Are yours worth catching?
