Networking Is a Contact SportHow Staying Connected and Serving Others Will Help You Grow Your Business, Expand Your Influence, or Even Land Your Next Job
How did Joe Sweeney...
...get Bob Costas to come to Milwaukee (in the middle of winter)?
...become the “wingman” to the archbishop of New York City?
...take Brett Favre’s off-the-field income from $65,000 to more than $4 million?
The answer is simple... Networking.
In this New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA TODAY bestseller, master networker Joe Sweeney shares his networking secrets from a long and successful career as a business owner, sports agent and executive and investment banking consultant.
His first secret: master networkers are focused on giving, not getting.
With today’s difficult economy and uncertain workplace, networking has never been more important. Sweeney’s simple but effective 5/10/15 networking plan will give you a leg up in the current job market, help you stay employed, or, if you’ve been laid off, find your next job. The cliché that who you know is more important than what you know has never been truer. Sweeney illustrates his insights with dozens of helpful examples from his own life (along with a few fascinating insider sports stories).
With special sections on networking for women and minorities, insights into the usefulness (and handicaps) of social networking sites, how to get (and why you need) a wingman and profiles of other master networkers, Networking Is a Contact Sport is a practical and essential guide for anyone who wants to get ahead in today’s economy.
I'm so positive that this will work that if you're unemployed or underemployed, and read this book, buy the workbook and do the 5-10-15 plan for 4 months and don't get a job offer, I'll give you all your money back PLUS I'll write you a personal check for $250 or give you $500 of free coaching.
In his New York Times best-selling book, Networking Is a Contact Sport, Joe Sweeney has combined his love of business with his passion for sports to tell the story of his very early networking finesse (even as a boy) and how others can easily learn what he has applied so successfully to his own life, business, and relationships. Joe is a firm believer in the importance of staying connected with the people who cross your path in life.
When Joe Sweeney wrote this book, his goal was simple:
Help others benefit from all he has learned about building rewarding relationships and successful businesses.
For more than 30 years, Joe has traveled the world asking questions, giving of himself, and doing his best to discover what motivates people. Now, you have an opportunity to learn the simple skills Joe has perfected to grow your business, expand your influence, and take both your professional and personal success to the next level.
“I have known Joe Sweeney for 40 years, and if there is one rule he has practiced, it is the Golden Rule. Living by this standard has helped him succeed in all facets of his life. By following the advice found in Networking Is a Contact Sport, you will find more meaning to your life and to your work.”
