It’s true. Two great books, together at last and just in time for Class of 2014 gift giving! When Maria Shriver’s daughter, Katherine, graduated from college she took her Mom’s advice. Sort of. Instead of trying to jump into the traditional job market, she decided to “pause” and keep herself semi-occupied by collecting “been there, done that” stories and writing a book.

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.
