Have you struggled with networking because you fear you don’t offer enough value to connect with someone? 

 

Does the thought of reaching out to a total stranger and connecting frighten you because you don’t know how to do it? 

 

These fear are common, and honestly, networking is challenging. In this episode, I’m breaking down the differences between cold and warm networking so you can build Your Mid-Career GPS and make more connections with greater ease and less stress. 

 

After all, you’ve got a lot to offer, and if you’re ready to build your network or re-engage them, this is a great way to do it.
