The Magic Email that will Grow Your Practice or Find You a Job

It’s about 130 words long. It is polite, respectful, and unassuming. Don’t be fooled by this, though. It is the most important email you will send if you are looking for clients or looking for work. It is the Magic Email.

Brian Massey is the author of “The Market for Me: Surviving Job Loss and Building Your Lifetime Career Network.” The Magic Email starts this powerful and easy-to-implement strategy off

He will also disclose:

1. Where your hidden network is and how to find it
2. How to significantly increase the number of interviews and client visits you get
3. Why social networks are limited in their ability to find Champions
4. How to find work at companies where there are no posted opportunities
