IN THIS SUMMARY
Networking events make many people uncomfortable. In Smart Networking, author Liz Lynch confesses to feeling so small and overwhelmed at her first networking event that she only lasted five minutes. But Lynch did not give up, and today she has built two businesses through networking. She writes that people who network do not need to be extroverts or manipulate others, and they do not need to network all the time. Lynch contends that networking is not about doing more but rather about being strategic. What people must do is be themselves and network smart.
