Feedback on the book:

“….Sandy’s book is outstanding. It’s one of those books that brings together a bunch of well known information and comes up with a new conclusion that feels much better than what I thought previously and completely demystifies what was a very intimidating event.” – Steve P.

“Sandy’s no-nonsense presentation of fundamental networking skills is an entertaining read to give all of us new at this confidence with a “Can-Do” attitude. She also cites numerous references in her book that will continue to be valuable to every social situation in life. Her book belongs in my library right next to the “One Minute Manager” and “60 Seconds and You’re Hired.” - Marty R.

“Thanks to the fresh perspective on networking in your book, I am looking forward to the event Friday night at the NW Women’s Show.” – Shari S.

“This is a great book for learning how to network properly! I love the pay-it-forward approach where I’m in it to help others! I highly recommend it for building your relationship skills.” – Flora

“For an introvert like myself, this book has been a godsend. Instead of being a wall flower, this book gives you practical advice on what to do at a networking event. I am able to go to these events and come back with four GOOD contacts instead of 20 meaningless business cards.

The best tips are after the networking event in chapter 6. There are examples of how to write an email to make introductions to people who have a common interest, yet do not know each other. This has worked four times for me in the space of two weeks. The best part is that once you have made the introduction, then it is up to them to make it work. This is part of Sandy’s “pay it forward” attitude throughout the book.”   – Jim S.
