Power Networking for Shy People: How to Network Like a Pro by Rae A. Stonehouse.

 

Over 40% of North Americans describe themselves as being shy.

Would you?

  • Do your hands start sweating and your legs shake with the thought of having to not only attend a business networking session but actually talk to people?
  • Do you feel paralyzed by the fear of rejection when you are at a business networking event?
  • Would you rather have a root canal than attend a business networking event?
  • Would you rather send an e-mail to a business lead than meet them in person?

Well if any of these apply... you may be shy!

"Get over it!" That's what our extroverted friends would say. "Just do what we do!"

Life isn't that simple. We aren't all extroverts and it would probably be a noisy world if we were. Being shy isn't a personal defect.

You aren't the only one out there, even if it feels like it sometimes. The world is full of shy people and that doesn't prevent you from being an effective networker and reaping the benefits that networking can bring to your business.

In Power Networking for Shy People: How to Network Like a Pro you will:

  • discover proven strategies to reduce your fear [that's what shyness really is] that will help you become an effective, power networker.
  • learn practical tips to strengthen the networking skills that you already have.
  • discover easy to use techniques that will take you from shy to sly.
  • discover the three phases of networking and how you can use each of them to your advantage.
  • learn about common fears or barriers that shy networkers often experience and how to overcome them.

The author knows what it is like to be shy. He knows how avoidance & denial can be a good friend. He knows how uncomfortable it can be to attend a networking event and not know a single person.

He also got sick and tired of his inhibitions getting in the way of opportunities and decided to do something about it. The result… Power Networking for Shy People: How to Network Like a Pro.

This is a must have book for those who want practical, proven tips & techniques on how to network effectively, especially if you are shy.

I'm not really shy. Will this book be of any use to me?

This program manual explores the fundamentals of relationship networking. If you don't have the added challenge of being shy, you will likely find it easier to use the tips & techniques to strengthen the networking and relationship building skills that you already have.

 Power of Promotion Book CoverThe Power of Promotion! On-line Marketing For Toastmasters Club Growth by Rae A. Stonehouse

For many Toastmasters Clubs, one of the biggest challenges in running a successful and productive club is maintaining a constant flow of visitors to attend and join you and your fellow Toastmasters as a member. Members come and members go. Life happens! Your Club membership can quickly change from a healthy charter-strength club to one in danger of losing its Charter.

Veteran Toastmaster of over two decades, Rae Stonehouse DTM (Distinguished Toastmaster), PDG (Past District Governor, District 21)has witnessed the cycle several times with his own club Kelowna Flying Solo Toastmasters.

Toastmasters are social!

Toastmasters are known to be quite social, after-all we are striving to hone our communication skills. Then along comes social media and on-line tools that can increase not only our reach but our productivity.

Social media is here to stay!

Social media is here to stay, at least until the next “big thing” comes along. Keeping up with what’s new, what’s hot and what’s not could easily turn into a full-time job. And indeed it has for many people as they have created a new career as Social Media Managers.

The Power of Promotion! On-line Marketing For Toastmasters Club Growth by Rae Stonehouse flattens the learning curve for anyone who wants to maximize their time spent on-line, without turning it into a full-time job.

Rae believes that Toastmasters clubs should be run like businesses and social media platforms provide promotional and marketing opportunities that can help spread the word about one of the world’s best kept secrets... Toastmasters.

In this easy-to-read, how-to manual, Rae shares his experience with using social media to draw attention to his Toastmasters club and to convert visitors to social media properties to actually visit his club and to join. Sometimes it has worked … sometimes not!

However, we’re confident that if you follow the strategies outlined in this book, you will be successful in landing a job.

From our experience, one of the biggest problems that job seekers often face is that they feel that they are coming from an inferior position and they don’t have a lot of personal power.

The belief being that the Employer has the superior position and has all the power.

Yes, they have the job and they have the power to give you the job ... or not.

What you may not realize is that many Hiring Managers are under similar pressures as you, the job seeker.

They have the pressure of finding the right candidate for the vacancy they need to fill.

They are accountable to their superiors should the person they hire not work out.

Hiring managers are under pressure to hire the right candidate.
