On May 1, I embarked on this nutty ultramarathon of connecting with people to gather all sorts of stuff: stories, tips, articles, new contacts. In the process, I am also gaining energy, writing practice, and some aha moments. One networking contact every single day for 365 days. Let me know if you’d like to be one of them: wbaldus@gmail.com

But why is he doing this you ask?

There are all sorts of how-to guides, plans and handbooks, but a striking lack of real life accounts of the myriad ways this mysterious process unfolds. My hope is that this blog will turn into a book to demystify this all-important skill and make it doable by illustrating ways it has actually worked for people.

Thanks and enjoy!
