More on The Intentional Networker
The Intentional Networker is a field guide for anyone who wants to make better business connections and maximize their professional socialization skills and relationship-building success. The premise of the book is that you can actually attract more success by networking less – you just need to do so with more purpose, authenticity and polish.
The target audience for the book includes motivated, purpose-driven business people, including entrepreneurs, business owners, freelancers, consultants, sales people, development professionals, recent graduates, job hunters, career changers and those re-entering the business world.
“The reaction I’m getting from readers is that this isn’t just another networking book, but a very readable handbook for being more intentional, polished and respected in business,” says DeNucci.
Author Patti DeNucci was inspired to write The Intentional Networker™ after spending more than 25 years in her own business- and relationship-building efforts as well as observing how others networked and attempted to attract more connections, customers, respect, and referrals. DeNucci realized that the secret to attracting more success in business wasn’t about networking more or collecting more business cards; it was about networking more genuinely, thoughtfully, and intentionally.
Midwest Review has also given The Intentional Networker high marks in the Business category of its Small Press Bookwatch, giving the book 5 out of 5 stars and naming it ”a strongly recommended pick for anyone who wants to boost their business networking power.”
The book was released in October 2011 and is available both in print and electronic formats on Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble and other major retailers. Local retailers in Austin that carry the book include BookPeople and BookWoman.
The Intentional Networker™ is a 272 page trade paperback and sells for $19.95 — less than the cost of a typical networking event. ISBN: 978-0-9835461-0-8
