    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I bought this book based on the reviews. The true testament to the author’s networking ability is how she got every member of her top 50 to give her a five star review. I was quickly turned off by the incessant name dropping, with the author paying homage to everyone she ever met. The name dropping reached its crescendo with the author revelling in her contribution to a supportive email sent by one of her friends to Bill Gates following Paul Allen’s negative remarks about him in his book. The final straw was the author’s description of how she jealously guards her Linkedin contacts only accepting connections from those she deems worthy of joining her snobby inner circle. I expected strategies on how to network – these were few and far between. I had high hopes for this book and I am very disappointed in my purchase.

    Powerful and applicable right away, April 30, 2014

    This review is from: How to Be a Power Connector: The 5+50+100 Rule for Turning Your Business Network into Profits (Hardcover)
    I don’t think of myself as a natural connector. All of the things you are supposed to do (cocktail parties, Chamber of Commerce…) seem way too much annoyance with way too little payoff.
    And yet, when I look at how I got my jobs, found a house to buy… I was connected into the opportunity by someone I knew. So I have seen the value of connecting, even if the ways I have been told to connect seem ineffective.
    Judy Robinett solves this issue with her amazing book. She gives a personal story and immediately applicable tools to make the connections everyone needs in a way which seems both efficient and effective.
    For me, this book can be a breakthrough in changing my thinking about meeting the people I need to meet. I haven’t seen anything like this before. Brava!

    As an avid business connector and relational expert, I was curious about what I would learn from Judy’s book…I COULD not put this book down. Judy identified what I am unconsciously competent at…and then puts a checklist to it. Absolutely incredible. Buy this book…you will learn the inside scoop of how to build great relationships and turn relationships into revenue!
