Podcast #315 – The Little Book of Networking: How to Grow Your Career
In this episode, I am speaking with Kurt Schmidt who is the author of the book The Little Book of Networking: How to Grow Your Career One Conversation at a Time. I like Kurt’s book because it is an easy 1 to 2-hour read and it is very actionable. It is very worth your time to get this book if you are reluctant to get back into networking.
Here is Kurt’s bio:
Kurt Schmidt is the president of Foundry, a pioneering software design agency that serves B2B industries. He is also the host of Schmidt List—a podcast with over two hundred episodes connecting him with prominent leadership minds for over five years.
With twenty-plus years of leadership and business experience, Kurt has learned the best-kept secrets for career and business success. In “The Little Book of Networking”, Kurt penned the networking handbook “The Little Book Of Networking” to empower individuals seeking professional growth.
I will be publishing several episodes about networking in the next month. In a couple of weeks, I will be speaking with my good friend Steve Harper who is the author of the book The Ripple Effect: Maximizing the Power of Relationships for Life & Business.
My perception and it is only my perception, is that many of you are uncomfortable getting back out there and meeting people in real life. We have gotten used to speaking with people over Zoom but it is so important to meet people one on one in person.
I will be spending much of May back in the US and I am currently scheduling one on one time with a lot of people while in Austin. My wife and I will be traveling to Annapolis Maryland to visit with our son, his wife, and their new sheep doodle puppies. So, I am following my advice.
