I am an introvert, and networking has always been difficult for me, but I have always known that networking would be the key to reaching my professional goals. I have found that giving myself a challenge is the best way to take my networking to the next level.
In 2011, I challenged myself to meet with four people I didn’t know and four people I did know each month in my 4X4 networking challenge. I learned so much from meeting 96 people in my 2011 challenge but I wanted to take it to the next level. So at the beginning of 2012, I set another networking challenge for myself to interview 50 successful women about their career and professional success.
