Part III: How to Network Even if You're an Introvert

Networking is about making connections and building enduring, mutually beneficial relationships. Ultimately, it’s not about who you know ... but WHO KNOWS YOU! Ask any senior attorney, partner, or solo practitioner which single skill or habit helped them excel in their career - an overwhelming majority will respond with one simple word… NETWORKING. Relationships are the catalyst for success. People do business with those they like and trust. Networking is the most productive and enduring tactic for building relationships. To succeed, you must continually connect with new people, cultivate emerging relationships and leverage your network.
