A good friend of mine, Michelle Donovan, is one of a very few individuals who teach the art and practice of referral networking. My bible is a book she co-authored with Ivan r. Misner (actually she wrote it.) “The 29% Solution” is comprised of 52 weekly networking success strategies.
An urban myth has it that there are six degrees between you and anybody else on earth that you would like to meet. Wrong! Not true.
But listen to what Michelle has to say. “It is true, though, that there are some people who are better connected than others. We believe that’s important because if means that ‘connecting’ is a skill that can be acquired. This book will help you develop your networking skills, increase your connections, and become part of the roughly 29 percent of people who are, in fact, separated from the rest of the world by just six degrees.”
