Does the thought of networking cause you to break out in a cold sweat? Do you ever feel like you are the only one in the room who doesn’t know the secret handshake? Even if you’ve been able to overcome those issues, have you been able to actually make networking work for you?

Kathryn Crawford Wheat is a professional Speaker, Consultant, and Author of the book, Networking: Naked & Unafraid.

There is a certain etiquette, or protocol, that is expected when it comes to business networking and few have any idea what that entails. Many business people go about networking making lots of errors that sabotage their efforts. People will forgive you for being an unschooled newbie for a while but if you never attempt to become educated, then you will most assuredly lose respect and potential business opportunities will vanish. Kathryn reveals the real secret to networking that is actually fun and gets results.

Kathryn uses her personal experience and time tested techniques to demystify networking and allow you to leverage this powerful resource to expand your business. Kathryn teaches based on the principal, “Networking is simply starting a conversation with no destination in mind.”

Kathryn provides valuable insights into the details that go into making that all-important first impression: handshakes, body language, psychology of color, business cards, mind-set, sense of humor, and confidence. Then she’ll show you the perfect way to stay in touch with the people you meet because if you don’t do that, you’re not actually building a network. You’re just socializing and gathering business cards.

And don’t worry, you can actually keep your clothes on! ☺

The richest people in the world look for and build networks, everyone else looks for work. ~ Robert Kiyosaki

Don’t act like a gunslinger whipping your card out of your pocket as you approach someone ready to fire. ~ Kathryn Crawford Wheat

The money is in the list. ~ Ronald Earl Wilsher

Every survival kit should include a sense of humor.

We can all learn something from Kathryn
5.0

I met Kathryn a few years ago when she was a guest speaker at an event. Instead of talking about business, she got up and talked more about her life and personal experiences. It was refreshing. She had already mastered the art of being relatable and someone that people wanted to know. She was building a network of friends by simply starting conversations with no destination in mind. I tried to surround myself with people like her that I could learn from and now I have learned more from her book “Networking; Naked & Unafraid.” If you are in a business that requires you to get out and meet people, I highly recommend this book. If you ever have the opportunity to hear Kathryn speak or meet with her one-on-one, I highly recommend that too! To know her is to love her!

Naked & Unafraid.png

Networking: Naked & Unafraid covers every aspect of networking I can think of. I wish I had read this book when I first started networking. It would have increased my effectiveness and prevented wasted time as well. Kathryn shares relevant, easy to understand, and easy to execute information. The day after finishing the book, I went to a networking event. I used just one of the things I learned, and it worked VERY much to my benefit. Every networker should read this! This is the first book I’ve read on networking, and after finishing, I don’t think I’ll need to read another one. I’m full and satisfied!

Recently, I had the great opportunity to sit with Kathryn for a one on one. I learned a lot about her, and she allowed me to share a little about myself. That part was almost therapeutic. She allowed me to pick her brain until I couldn’t pick no more 🙂 I can surely say I left our meeting feeling better and being better than when I arrived.

Insightful, Inspiring, Thoughtful and a True Pathway in to Successful Networking
5.0

I am so very new to networking of any sort. I am the easy one to pick out in the crowd as a newbie. Receiving this book this past Friday from Ronnie at a networking meeting; I began reading it right away. It is very insightful and an absolute baseline educational tool for the inexperienced networker. I find myself reading and chuckling at the examples because I know in my short time networking, I have made some of the same mistakes detailed in the passages. Another copy will be acquired this Friday as mine is currently being “Shared” within my family. I plan to carry this book with me to other meetings, recommend it, and use it as a reference guide and refresher to move forward and be unafraid.

I have know Kathryn as a friend since around 2009 when she attended InHouston Katy Business Professional Networking Mixe.She is a great lady, as I have seen her grow even better over the past years. You speaks a lot to realtor groups and author of a great book.
