Blog Pick of the Week: Less is more in business networking
Our theme this week has been networking. We published our newsletter featuring a book on networking and highlighting the "Networking Tips for those who don't like to" on the blog. With that in mind, I read a variety of business blogs and found this one I wanted to share.

It does still mean actually talking to someone face to face. I know that can be scary sometimes but it can also be fun.
