Become a real influencer and have a lasting impact on your life and the lives of others!

Are you already networking but all that effort is not translating into results? Does everyone seem to be getting farther ahead even though you are just as smart? Are you looking for a new job or up for a promotion? Do you have great ideas, but no one seems to be listening to them?

If any of these questions resonate with you, Forbes Top 25 Networking Expert Michelle Tillis Lederman has the answers you’ve been looking for.

And, even if you are already a Connector, this book will help you take it up a level, enabling you to become a modern-day influencer and increase your impact on others – and your world.

Connectors think and act a certain way, making things happen faster, easier, and often with better results. In this book, Michelle explains:

  1. How YOU can build relationships and connections that are critical to YOUR results, success, and happiness.
  2. How YOU can develop a way of thinking and acting that enables stronger relationships.
  3. How YOU can infuse these mindsets and behaviors into YOUR interactions and see the impact.

These include Marshall Goldsmith, Dorie Clark, Ivan Misner, Susan RoAnn, and more.

Regardless of your goal – a job, a promotion, a new business, a referral – whom you know and who knows you will lead to opportunities.

It is the strength of your relationships that leads to your success.
