"Make friends, not networks, and reignite your podcasting passion!"

"Networking is just making friends if you're doing it the right way. A lot of people do networking the wrong way, which is where networking gets this kind of slimy type of connotation to it. But if you do it the right way, it can be an incredibly powerful tool for building relationships that will benefit you and your career, benefit you and your entrepreneurial ventures." -Travis Chapell
