Some people have all the luck…
When you’re talented, hardworking, and good at your job, it can be frustrating to see your colleagues and peers getting ahead while you remain stuck. Or to watch with envy as your boss chats on the phone, has long lunches, and clocks out early to do something fun with her friends. Meanwhile, you’re stuck grinding away the hours at work, wondering how to leverage your skills and experience to take your career to the next level.
In those moments, you ask yourself: What secret do they know that I don’t?
In Don’t Be a Stranger, Lawrence Perkins answers that question. If you want to create your own luck in business - rather than relying on others to propel your career - then strategic relationship building should be your focus. You’ll learn simple techniques for developing a community of people around you that will enrich your career as well as your life. We still do business with those we know, like, and trust, and in this social media age, nothing can duplicate the power of real-life relationships.

Nails the holy grail of Biz Relationship Devel!
I actually know the Author and wish he had narrated this title himself (#NARRATETHENEXTONEYOURSELFLARRY). Thoroughly enjoyed it and as a headhunter, my business is all about building and harvesting relationships. I HATE the word networking and believe me if you're looking for the secrets of how to work the chamber of commerce mixer for maximum effectiveness--this ain't your answer. In a world filled with SPAM, smarmy group e-mails, ePitches, and whatever is the next iteration of the cold call, Larry calls out the rules of the road for initiating, developing, and only then benefitting from business relationships. His dirty little secret is that at their foundation, they are personal and human relationships first and not win-win exchanges of "value". Since reading DBAS, I have sent it to 50 candidates, colleagues, and friends who all have the same quest, "How do I build my network?". Larry, can you create a special reply e-mail for us that we can use to reply to every SPAM e-mail to get them to buy your book?
