Fearless Thoughts

Fearless Thoughts – Uncomfortable Zone

The truth is that I do not like networking.  But many people do not like networking.  There’s something about approaching someone you never met and hoping something will come from it.  Even if I just want to get to know someone I often overthink what to talk about and when I finally approached the person the conversation typically seems unnatural and ends awkwardly.

But speaking to strangers is a necessary skill and not one that I can just give up on learning.  This year I plan to work on my networking skills – practice builds confidence.  I’ll keep my fear of looking or sounding stupid at bay and mingle with abandon.
