You want to expand your professional circle, transition into a new career, learn something new, or go to a new city and meet the locals. But how? By introducing yourself to new online and offline communities to meet new people and open up opportunities. In order to do that you're going to have to make yourself uncomfortable. Making yourself uncomfortable is a powerful way to identify and take advantage of current and new opportunities. In this panel, we'll share personal stories, hard-earned lessons and practical advice on how to find and explore the edges and cores of new-to-you communities. We'll provide tips on how to break through being uncomfortable and transitioning to a whole new outlook in order to use communities for personal and professional growth.
