Pushing through shyness: Networking tips



Pushing Through Shyness: Networking Tips when you’re shy, slow-to-warm-up, inexperienced or don’t feel you belong by Candelaria N. Silva

Networking can be useful or a waste of time.  It can be painful or it can be fulfilling.  It can be drudgery or it can be delightful. You hold the key to what the experience is for you. 

Pushing Through Shyness gives you tips and tools to work a networking event to your advantage.  It is useful for novices and for professionals.  The 9-page booklet is illustrated and printed on high-quality stock and would make a practical motivational tool or gift.  An order form is attached for your convenience.

Candelaria is also available to do a workshop on this topic.  Contact her if interested. 

(Also available for purchase is  Handling Rejection, an inspirational essay.  Watch for upcoming booklets including How to Design and Facilitate a Workshop and Real Issues to Discuss with Teenagers about Sex.)
