Hey Lisa,


I really like this approach. Networking is not an easy thing for many people, and does require us to have a little bit of courage in order to reach out and connect with those around us. I know many people are quite shy and hesitant to take risks in a social setting, but the truth is, you don't have to take any big leaps. Most of the magic in life occurs when we just take a tiny step outside our comfort zone, much in the manner that you are describing. It doesn't really matter what field you are in - regularly challenging yourself in small ways to become comfortable with being a little uncomfortable is one of the best ways for a person to grow and connect with the world around them.
