Networking and knowing people is an important part of a successful life. And it can be the worst nightmare for introverts.

But the good thing is: it’s something you can change.
You can have a great time at networking events. I know I do, even though it’s out of my comfort zone and awkward sometimes.

I limited myself by thinking I was not good at small talk. But a small mindset shift and some practice can change every limiting belief.

The fear of social events haunted me.
But ignoring networking possibilities and work events is a mistake you will regret because being successful depends on how big your network is.

I got my first part-time job through a connection I met in my student organization.

Your connections know what you are doing and will write you if they need someone from your field.

“Introverts dislike small talk, but we are fluent in the language of ideas and dreams”
