Recommendation

Does networking make you cringe? Isn’t it enough to have a LinkedIn profile? Experienced writer and media guru Karen Wickre provides a wealth of practical advice about personal networks. She dispels myths about what they are, how they work and what’s really required to maintain them. Her approach is refreshingly warm, genuine and human. A personal network is not about having a big LinkedIn or Facebook following. It’s about bringing people together in ways that help them, and sometimes you get something out of it, too. getAbstract recommends Wickre’s counsel to people needing inspiration for growing and maintaining their networks.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How a personal network is different from a social network,
  • Why having a personal network is more important now than ever before and
  • How to maintain a quality personal network that provides support when you need it.
