Life changing book! I’ve never known how to network, not because I didn’t know how to talk to people and ask open-ended questions, but because I didn’t like the feeling that I was using them. Judy’s excellent book changed my perspective, giving me “permission” to just relate to people without every interaction being a “sales call.”

With practical steps and a clear explanation of “why,” How to Be a Power Connector has opened a whole new world to me of seeking how to help others, especially through connecting them to each other for their mutual benefit. It’s almost become a sport to find people with needs I would have never thought of being able to help them with, then looking for someone I know who can help.

The section on being in the right room is worth the price of the book alone. Seems obvious once you think about it, but sadly, too much time is wasted talking to the wrong people for what you need.

I bought both the Kindle and versions of the book and highly recommend them.

Would you listen to How to Be a Power Connector again? Why?

Loved it!
Judy Robinett has translated her own pathway to success into a trail that just about any of us can follow.
Concise and thorough, Judy speaks plainly and from the heart to lay out a practical framework for developing a powerful network of allies and friends.
Numerous quotes and real-world success stories from her own life and those of other high achievers give her ideas weight and make for a great listen.
Narration is spot on. I felt like I was listening to the author the whole time.
