Get ready to grow and cherish your network in a way that doesn’t feel sales-y, inauthentic, or gross (even when networking means sitting at home!). You'll learn how to create meaningful, authentic connections on Zoom, the mindset you need to show up confident and attract the right collaborators, and easy ways to keep the convo going with your new contacts so you don’t lose momentum. Also: Why it’s never too late for gratitude – thank you is the new hello!
