I found the email below in my Inbox this morning and it sure started my day off on a happy note! Salil describes exactly what I was hoping to achieve by writing my book, I’m at a Networking Event–Now What???
Soon after I read this, I contacted him to thank him for taking the time to write and requested his permission to share it with y’all. And, hey, if you read my book, and feel the same way Salil does, please become a fan of my book on Facebook. Thanks so much and Happy New Year all! 🙂

Subject: I’m at a networking event
I recently purchased this ebook from Michelle Levy’s website and I am so happy with my decision. I had always struggled with networking events. I heard a lot about the importance of networking events but never knew what to do and how to initiate any dialogue or even take it to the next step/level. Some of your openers were very helpful. I also liked the specific action items you included in each chapter. The section on hosting your own networking event was also a great idea. I started acting on those and reached out to couple of people while standing in a queue. Prior to reading this book, I could never think of reaching out to people on my own. But to my surprise, the experience was very positive and I had very useful and fruitful discussion with those people. I am also thinking of hosting an event sponsored by my company early next week and I already have a theme in mind.
So once again, thank you for the great write up. I am definitely recommending this book to other people who I know are struggling with the same issue.
