Your Network is Your Networth

In this video, I interview Porter Gale the former VP of Marketing for Virgin America and author of the fascinating book Your Network is Your Net Worth I first heard Porter speak on this topic several years ago. What she talked about then, and elaborates on in her book, has changed my life. I don’t say that lightly. The path to a richer (in the broadest sense of the term) life is through relationships with other people. Unlike all the other books I’ve read on “networking” (I really hate that term and prefer the term “relationship building” instead), this is the ONLY book whose ideas I actually ended up USING. It describes a model for relationship building that’s very natural, easy, and allows me to be me (as opposed to some super schmoozer that “works the room” in a manipulative way).As a introverted person, I found this book to be the first “networking” book that resonated with me enough that I’d actually use the ideas in real life. I highly recommend Your Network is Your Net Worth
