I'm obsessed with re-branding networking and helping people build the networks they need to achieve their career goals (so obsessed in fact, that I wrote a book on the very topic - Build Your Dream Network: Foraging Powerful Relationships In A Hyper-Connected World).
I was a corporate lawyer, before becoming a manager in a global law firm (overseeing professional development, alumni and the firm's women's advancement initiative). Then suddenly, a few years after leaving the cubicle job, Forbes listed me as “1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship”, Business Insider added me to their list of the "100 Most Influential Tech Women On Twitter” and Inc. named me to their “1 of the 10 Most Well-Connected People in New York City's Startup Scene”--- tributes to the power of networks to COMPLETELY change your career trajectory (and to unlock a vast horizon of possibilities for your own career).
To build a dream network, you don't need to start out knowing a TON of people, you just need a new approach to networking - plus the commitment to apply this new approach day in and day out!
When you show up here, you'll find "office hour" accountability sessions, ongoing access to mentorship, invitations to participate in mastermind groups and private 1:1 digital conversations. Plus 24/7 access to resources posted by me and the amazing community that is BYDN.
Did I just mention AMAZING community members? Yes, I did but it's worth repeating and mentioning that they are promoting each other, providing each other with opportunities, leads, tools, insights and ideas for their careers!
