E-Z Networking in 3 Steps!

I tortured coached a client last night, making her present to me her networking pitch over and over and over again till I’m sure now she’s re-thinking her plan to transition her career…or at least to attempt to do so with me. But honestly, she was a trooper, with a great attitude…despite making me feel…

“I had drunk much wine and afterward coffee and Strega and I explained, winefully, how we did not do the things we wanted to do; we never did such things.” – A Farewell to Arms, Hemingway I am, on the whole, a huge fan of Papa Hemingway—except, you know, when he’s being anti-Semitic, or misogynistic,…
