Welcome back to On the Schmooze. Thank you so much for joining me. Last week I had the pleasure of interviewing Keiko Zoll, this week you’ll be hearing from me, your host.

Every other week I’ll be offering my take on some aspect of networking and relationship-building. These shorter podcast episodes will include practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you.

This week, to help make networking less scary, I’ve created a simple tool to help you focus your time and get results. Brainstorm + Objective + Organize = BOO! Meeting strangers can be scary. It’s human nature to want to stick with what is familiar to us and stay within our comfort zones. The downside to this instinct? You’ll only know the people you already know and if they can’t help you find a job or identify new clients then you’re at a dead end. If you’re serious about achieving your professional goals you’ll need to get past your fear of meeting strangers.
