MILLION DOLLAR NETWORKING
“Easy Doesn’t Do It …Forget a quiet game of golf. Some folks make business networking a real adventure. . . Andrea Nierenberg, the author of Million Dollar Networking and a consultant on building business relationships, routinely brings
business cards with her when she hikes and-no surprise-has struck up several business relationships that way. But she usually does her trekking during spa weekends around the country.”

“For all the introverts who say, ‘I don't have the gift of gab,’ Nierenberg begs to differ. You need to start this book by reading Chapter 6, ‘The Introvert's Networking Advantage,’ first to see how introverts can adapt their style to turn their innate strengths to networking advantages.”

* Turn the tables on someone who asks for 15 minutes of your time. Ask
them to e-mail you their questions - with the answers they would give.
This will focus their thinking and weed out people who aren't serious,

"Like any other business event, you want to dress professionally. ‘Don't wear anything you wouldn't wear the following day if you had to make a presentation in front of senior management,’ says Andrea Nierenberg, a New York-based business-relationship consultant and author of "Million Dollar Networking.....Nierenberg's advice: For women, keep bare skin to a minimum. For men, make sure everything is buttoned and zippered. If it's your first holiday party at your job, be sure to ask colleagues about the dress code ahead of time."

"Can't decide which industry organizations or clubs to join? Use the 2-2-2 strategy, says Andrea Nierenberg, author of ‘Million Dollar Networking’ (Capital Books, 2005). Attend two meetings. This lets you experience the group, meet members, and get an idea of the organization's long-term goals. Meet two people and exchange business cards. They can answer your questions about the organization and introduce you to other members. Arrange two follow-up meetings (breakfast, lunch, or just coffee). Even if you don't join, you now have two new contacts. And if you do join, these new contacts can multiply into many more."
"The author of the popular 'Nonstop Networking' is back with more advice for making and keeping valuable business contacts....In a glutted market of networking guides, Nierenberg's second offering shines."
