Networking Awesomely

By Colin Wright

“Colin takes a look at effective networking techniques that are equal parts entertaining and practical. He not only shows how to network awesomely but points out many of the common pitfalls that people make by “networking douchebaggedly” [and I thought all the variations of douchebag had been uses up]. Colin employs the help of countless other bloggers to weigh in with their thoughts on networking & the result is something nothing short of remarkable. Well done Colin!” – Joel Runyon | Blog Of Impossible Things <br /><br /> “Honestly? Networking Awesomely defied my expectations. I went in expecting a comprehensive manual on the intricacies of business networking, but came out feeling like I’d just read an enthusiastic how-to guide on life. Looking beyond the networking terminology, what you’ve crafted here reads like a pretty slick primer on just being awesome – being the kind of person who can captive a room and establish lasting friendships everywhere he goes. Those are the kind of goals most people shoot for, and certainly something I myself aspire to, so it’s delightful to see the means and the method laid out so easily on the page. Hell, you make it all sound so easy. No coincidence, then, that easy might be the best word for it.<br /><br /> Boiled down, the book is just easy – easy to read, easy to digest, and easy to enjoy, the combination of which makes for an inspiring piece of work. I want to go out and meet people. I want to cultivate this vast network of friends from all over the world, and maybe this is the first time I realized that goal is absolutely within my grasp.” – Matt Madeiro | Three New Leaves <br /><br /> “The thing that strikes me the most about Networking Awesomely is how the title doesn’t even come close to doing this eBook justice; its scope spans far greater than just networking. Networking Awesomely is a powerful collection of human psychological and sociological insights that Colin applies in a practical manner, showing readers how to leverage such truths in a way that will essentially get people places they want to go. And isn’t that what we all want? To reach our goals in the shortest amount of time, and in the best way possible? From this perspective, Colin’s book is actually about something far greater than networking–it’s about getting out there and learning how to become a mover and a shaker in order to proactively take control over your life. From advice to tips to tricks to personal stories from other kings and queens of networking, Colin’s eBook is definitely a must-read for anyone looking to get up out of their seat and make things happen. Hell, I’m jealous I didn’t write the thing.” – Ash Ambirge | The Middle Finger Project <br /><br /> In this ebook, I propose a new kind of networking strategy: one that involves creating much stronger bonds, better social habits, a more fulfilling approach to life and a more valuable network. I’ll give you tips, tricks, philosophies and stories that will help you become a better networker. <br /><br /> Not only that, but I’ve convinced 26 of the people who’s networking skills I respect the most (from all different walks of life, industries and lifestyles) to share their own experiences and advice.

About the author

A quick bit about me and what I’m up to on this site and in life: I move to a new country every 4 months. My readers vote on where I’ll live, and I do my best to learn all I can about my new home and its people while continuing to manage my business ventures and seek out new experiences. So far I’ve lived in Argentina, New Zealand, Thailand, Iceland and India (where I’m currently living), in addition to my home country, the United States.
