Networking doesn’t have to be that frenzied old-school game of
calendars packed with stuffy power lunches and sterile evenings at
community business gatherings. We’ve entered a new era, one in which
shifting cultural values and the explosion of digital technology enable
us to network in vastly more efficient, more focused, and more enjoyable
Your Network Is Your Net Worth is both a primer and a storybook, an
entertaining, straightforward guide filled with revealing case studies,
hands-on advice, and innovative strategies for building your network.
Gale shares the inspiring stories of so many others who live by this
networking model: a military wife who connects with social media
communities while her husband is deployed overseas, a young woman
blogger battling leukemia, a dyslexic politician who wins elections by
telling stories, and the CEO of a Major League Baseball team who once
made a phone call that changed the course of his life.
From 2007 to 2011,
Porter was Vice President of Marketing at Virgin America. She is also a
blogger for AdAge and The Huffington Post.
