Smiles, handshakes and helping others.

James Clear's "24 networking tips that actually work" from the Passive Panda blog. Networking isn't just smiles and handshakes, says Clear. But we already knew that, like we knew that networking success doesn't just happen on its own, it requires planning and focus and effort. Then why read this post? Because it's full of practical tips on doing it right, on setting expectations, on building relationships, on making networking a habit, and on much more. And even if you don't agree with everything that Clear says, the happy baby picture in this post is hands down a great way to start your day.


  1. Hahaha... Thanks Lance! I'm glad you enjoyed the post.

    I'm writing a more tactical "how-to" follow up article on networking right now, so hopefully that will be useful as well!

    Have a good one!

  2. James: thanks for the comment. Look forward to seeing the next post.

    Might be hard to top that photo, though!
