In my first book: "SIMPLEnetworking", I offer 50 tips for networking success! In the chapter: "Whine Tasting", I dispel the excuses for why we do not network more effectively. Here is a good tip, even for my fellow introvert networkers:

Always remain focused and positive before attending networking functions.
