I came across an article recently on MSN Careers about networking for shy people. "Hmmmm..." I thinks to myself. Then again for good measure (just in case the first time didn't work), "Hmmmmm..."
And then suddenly out popped a thought! That's such a huge issue when you're trying to make anything new happen, where so much depends on being able to meet the right people. Whether that is creating a new business, transitioning into a new career, or even just getting the firsthand insights of people who have "been there, done that," the ability to network can make all the difference in the world when you're pursuing your passion.
