Natural and Effortless Networking in 6 Weeks
Are you craving more visibility, but maybe nervous about self-promotion or unsure what to do or say?
This small group course is for people who want to escape the pushy sales stuff and to have more ease with networking.
Past participants, both introvert and extrovert, enjoyed the group experience AND the results. They even say networking is fun!!
Join this facilitated group of 5-8 like-minded people in a six-week course, starting February 2013.
I’m amazed by how much is already becoming manifest in my life. I can’t tell you how helpful it’s been to work with you! Just in the time I’ve been with the group, I’ve gone from 6 clients to 21 clients using your networking secrets! It has definitely been a great investment!”

Each meeting will be dedicated to a particular theme using structured discussion or exercises.
I will facilitate the group to ensure equality of participation and productive focus. We will establish basic guidelines in the first meeting. The group structure will take into account both introvert and extrovert styles so that it’s easy for everyone to participate.
There should be something of value to all members in all meetings. The connection among members could continue online between meetings.
- 6 group meetings over 6 weeks. Each meeting is 1.25 hours.
- Structured homework to deepen your learning and forward your progress between sessions.
- Access to my secure online client portal with professionally designed tools, goal tracking, and journaling features to help make your progress easier.

This is an investment for your career or business, for finding balance, and making your mark on the world. You and the world are worth the investment of time and money. And it should pay off in concrete ways.
Is It the Right Fit for Me?
I’ll help you decide if it’s a good fit, before we get started. Simply complete the group application form and I’ll let you know.
If you are needing more than networking support (such as business vision clarity), consider the Discovery Session.

What If I Start and It Doesn’t Feel Right?
If it doesn’t feel right for you after the first meeting, and you tell me within a week that you want to end, I’ll refund your payment. Ideally I’d like to try to resolve the problem but I trust your instincts if it’s simply not your thing.
