Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Entrepreneur Gale goes beyond the male-female divide to describe how networks transform lives—but only if the individual is ready and available. Attitude comes first. As with most do-it-yourself-change tomes, an assessment begins the process (identifying barriers and goals), followed by the creation of one’s mission statement, or what Gale calls the funnel test, which means defining three critical focuses. In this era it is no surprise that values become her next step: that is, finding and connecting and learning from friends, family, and communities who share similar outlooks and objectives. Creativity, her third and final phase, is realized through storytelling and expertise. Exercises that make these phases more tangible, from a time-waste audit to a list of barriers, are featured in each chapter, as are anecdotes of individuals who have “broken through.” A very New Age and complicated guide to establishing your best self. --Barbara Jacobs

Review

“In a time when we all need to learn how to unlock our human potential and make meaningful connections, Porter masterfully articulates the path ways, this is a must have read.” (David Mayer de Rothschild, British Adventurer/Environmentalist and Author )

"Porter's book hits the nail on the head. Be authentic, follow your passions, nurture relationships and use technology to improve and accelerate your connections. This is a great read with insightful stories and lots of practical tips. Not to mention Porter has executed this not just talked about it." (Gary Vaynerchuk, author of Crush It and The Thank You Economy, Founder of VaynerMedia  )

“In a noisy and busy world, Porter's book helps you focus on the opportunities that matter and act on them.  Her advice comes to life through her own fascinating anecdotes as well as in interviews and stories with the key players of Silicon Valley.” (Bill Clerico, CEO of WePay )

“In a connected society, we are defined by what we say, what we do, and who we know. As in the real world, social capital is now the measure of one's standing in these digital communities. Porter Gale explains how each of us can more productively contribute to this social economy.” (Brian Solis, digital analyst and sociologist and bestselling author )

“This book is a must read for anyone who wants to thrive in today's 'connected culture.' Networks are exponential, and networked people are exponentially successful.” (Jon Bond, Marketing Thought Leader and Co-founder of Kirshenbaum & Bond )

"A healthy reminder about the relatively simple things professionals can do to stimulate their motivational processes and achieve even greater success in today’s competitive marketplace. A useful guidebook for those desiring success through shrewd networking." (Kirkus Reviews)

“This book isn’t a rehash of stuffy, old-world networking ideas. It’s a primer and storybook, which will inspire you with amazing stories of well-known business icons and everyday people who have transformed their lives through networking.”  (Guy Kawasaki, Author of Enchantment and former chief evangelist of Apple )

“Want to bring value to the people you connect? With currency, credibility and unvarnished honesty Porter creates a brilliant model of networking for a meaningful purpose. Relating stories of personal challenge while driving efforts at some of the world’s most valuable brands she derives and shares hard-earned tools that anybody can put to work.” (Jennifer Aaker and Andy Smith, authors of The Dragonfly Effect )

“A thoroughly absorbing, and enjoyable book that challenges the contemporary conventions of networking, while leaving the reader wanting more. This book makes one thing abundantly clear: Porter Gale is a renaissance woman whose literary vision is as dynamic and impactful as her entrepreneurial track record.” (Sean Gardner (aka: @2morrowknight), Social Media Specialist )

"I've seen Porter rise and network herself from a Jr. Account Executive to one of the most well respected advertising executives in the US. If you want to know how to connect your way to success read this book and start increasing your net worth!" (Richard Kirshenbaum, CEO of NSG/SWAT, Author of Madboy, Beyond Madmen: Tales from the Mad, Mad World of Advertising )

“Porter’s book defines one of the most important and critical missing components of the digital age. That no matter how advanced or powerful or connected our digital equipment is, at the end of the day we are human, and that in itself is the most useful tool we have to create the world we want to live in.” (Nick Graham, Founder of Jox Boxer )

“Porter highlights the significance and value of strategically building your network to improve your personal and professional prosperity.” (Jeffrey Hayzlett, Global Business Celebrity, Bestselling Author, CEO The Hayzlett Group )

“This book could not have come at a better time. Today, when our networks are more valuable than ever before, Porter offers the tools that will help us tap into our connections in a way that effortlessly brings exponential returns to our lives and relationships.” (Randi Zuckerberg, CEO and Founder of Zuckerberg Media )

“Porter's fascinating and personal book reminds us that the more digitalized we become, the more human we need to be. And, at the core of being human is our need to connect. This book is a profound reminder of how to authentically connect with others.” (Chip Conley, Founder of Joie de Vivre Hotels and Author of PEAK and Emotional Equations )

“They say it's who you know, not what you know. While not entirely true, your network is in fact a crucial tool in advancing toward your own personal goal line. Porter's advice is built on real life success. Your network IS your net worth.” (Jason Felts CEO, Virgin Produced )

"Porter's a connector. In fact, she's introduced me to more people than I can count. Her book includes the recipe and the secret sauce for networking." (Celebrity Chef Michael Mina )

“Look at the names on and in this book. Porter's title isn't just a cute quip, she's built a priceless collection of friends, colleagues and contacts using it as mantra and so can you.” (Ryan Holiday, Director of Marketing, American Apparel  )
