Networking. Just the word can sometimes bring chills to introverts like me. We tend to think of networking as "slapping palms" and "swapping business cards" and the whole thing often feel a little... swarmy.

His new book is called Friend Of A Friend. == Today’s episode is sponsored by Storyblocks. To learn more, visit Storyblocks.com/ac. The intro music for the AC podcast is by Joshua Seurkamp.
