I have a special treat for you this week. This will be the first time I’ve had someone back on the show and it’s for a very good reason. My guest is a people expert who inspires organizations and individuals to build real relationships and get real results. Named one of Forbes Top 25 Networking Experts, she is the author of several books including “The Connectors Advantage: 7 Mindsets to Grow Your Influence and Impact,” which was just released a couple of months ago. For this book, she interviewed over two dozen networking experts, including Marshall Goldsmith, Dorie Clark, Ivan Misner, Susan RoAnn, and yours truly. I feel quite fortunate to be mentioned with this esteemed group - many of whom I’ve interviewed. Connectors think and act a certain way that makes things happen faster, easier, and often with a better result. If you feel like your networking is not translating into results or everyone else seems to be getting ahead even though you are just as smart - then you’ll appreciate the great advice from these connectors.
