Achieving Success Comes Down to One Thing: Connecting With People




Everyone finds success differently, whether it's by pulling bootstraps a little tighter or knowing the right people at the right time. In my case, I found success only after doing something I typically dread: networking. But after moving to a new city-where I knew no one, and no one knew me-I didn't really have a choice. If I wanted to get somewhere, connecting with people was the key.

Over time, dread turned to desire, and I not only started to benefit from networking, but I started to enjoy it. So I began helping others connect within the community, too, attending lunches and speaking at networking events. And now, eight years later, I've found a full-time career I love, one I started from scratch. But this didn't happen overnight. It took proactivity and a willingness to connect. It meant getting out of my comfort zone, confronting my fear and putting myself out there.
