From the Author
Hi! Melissa here! I have been writing now for more than fifteen years. My latest work is all about helping teens learn history from books that are cool and unique.
MASTERS MASHUPS SERIES - THE END OF BORING HISTORY BOOKS!
All the proceeds form this series go to the mentoring of new adults I take on yearly. So, if you know a teen or young or new adult or teachers of teens or young or new adults, have them check out these mashup books:

As a recent college graduate (well....it still hasn't been one year!), I knew networking was an essential part for jump starting my career. I attended career fairs and informational sessions and did the standard follow up emails. Surely, they were a bit of help, but this guidebook really enhanced my strategies when networking as well as expanding my "networld". In turn, I am finding some of my connections to become stronger, meaningful and longer lasting. I used to have many acquaintances. Now I have partners. My view has been altered; I think of mere greetings, small talk and exchanging emails as flimsy. I shudder when I hear somebody say, "I want to pick your brain" now! Imagine how many people out there are trying to "network" and find jobs, clients, or partners. There's another hidden advantage to this you will eventually realize as you read and apply these practices: not only does it enrich your networking/business relationships, it will impact your personal life and social circles in positive ways. It's no jaw dropper it has hit #1 for job hunting. My results have spoken for themselves: I have business ventures opening up that I never thought would happen at my young age and have met inspiring folks. Whatever point you are at in your life...this book is a gem to put in your virtual library.

Melissa Giovagnoli's newest book highlights the most important concepts of Networlding and its exponential power in building lasting relationships and opportunities. The format is easy to read and digest, and I love the use of the numbering system to help make the tips easier to manage. Melissa takes the obsolete form of networking ("what's in it for me") and transforms it into an idea that provides continuous value for all of those involved. It is amazing what positive effects a slight change of perspective can have on a relationship! The tips act as a founding stone from which to build upon, allowing one to focus on each aspect with as much time and thought as needed. Also, the bonus social media tips in the back were very helpful as well!
I really enjoyed reading this book, and highly recommend it to those looking to network in a new and meaningful way. I can't wait to tell my friends and family about this book, and hope to soon have my own circles!
