To have a successful career, it's imperative to have a good, strong network of people with whom you've formed relationships. Whether you are doing a job search, going for a promotion, or hunting for your next great business deal, you will succeed only with and through the relationships you form with others. Yet, the standard advice on how to network to develop these relationships doesn't usually work for introverts and the socially reluctant. The "Just get out there and meet people!" advice only works if you already happen to be one of the extroverts in our culture.
Easier Networking for Introverts and the Socially Reluctant is a 4-step guide specifically designed for and used successfully by people who are not naturally extroverted, and who need networking guidance that will work for them. This guide contains proven methods that take people through a step-by-step process; better known as bite-sized steps for learning to network without the usual dread experienced by introverts and the socially reluctant. As it turns out, this approach works well for all personality types!

This audiobook is based on four pillars or four basic rules. All of these work in conjunction with the others so it's vital to incorporate them all in order to build your network. This book will help you in these areas:
1. Understanding the building blocks - Know why you're building your network. The reason is for your next opportunity whether it be a promotion or a new job. Growth. Interacting with like-minded people is something introverts commonly do.
2. Expanding - Add to your network frequently and keep in contact. Be proactive and have goals. The book gets into tiers or levels of closeness of the people in your network. It also lists some good groups to become involved with.
3. Engaging - How to meet, introduce yourself, and get involved with others. For an introvert, this can be extremely awkward. This book will give you ideas on how to overcome a few issues that can arise by doing things such as ways to approach people and talk to them.
4. Maintaining - After you've built your relationship or network, you need to maintain it. Consider it as an investment.
Overall, this audiobook can be helpful for anyone interested in networking for life.
