"I had the privilege of meeting the author, and she is fantastic and fascinating. I connected with the book as I am totally introverted and never thought 'networking' was anything I could realistically achieve. As Diane describes the process and breaks it down...turns out, I was already kinda networking anyway, just didn't realize it. So, this book made me much more aware and able to leverage my interactions with business contacts."
