2 Books on Networking Relationship Management; 1 Free and 1 Almost Free

  • Review Book on Amazon
    My 2nd book "10 Powerful Networking Secrets of Influential People" is now available on Amazon.  I asked successful entrepreneur and real estate developer, Julio Barreto to write the foreword in this book for a very specific reasons. Our 40 year personal and business relationship exemplifies the exact principles shared in this book.  With both of us growing up in the Edenald housing projects in New York City, attending grade school together and being business associates for many years, Julio has been a big influence in my life.  He introduced me to "edification" and successful business owners who create reciprocal self-empowerment by edifying each other.  This simple, yet powerful networking skill is covered in "10 Powerful Networking Secrets of Influential People". When connecting with people, influence is derived by focusing on the ultimate goal of developing relationships for life.  It may not always work that way, but that does not mean we shouldn't strive for that achievement.

    When we think of people having influence, the thought of politicians, wealthy people, entertainers and company CEOs immediately comes to mind.  "10 Powerful Networking Secrets of Influential People" teaches how to develop your own inner power to change things for the good of community  or make a positive impact without having prestige or wealth.

    Just in case you were thinking "I didn't even know Carl published a 1st book", you can get a free copy of "10 Powerful Networking Tips Using Business Cards - Global Extended Edition".  Just subscribe to my blog  Get the paperback version on Amazon.

    I am honored to have Rod Colon write the book "foreword".  Rod's fast selling book Win The Race For 21st Century Jobs is also on Amazon.  A master networker, Rod Colon has been an influential personal in my life helping me hone my networking skills for fun and profit. 

    Doing Community Good Adds Value

    , Expo Producer & CEO iPower Global Solutions
    Held in New Rochelle, NY, I had the honor of speaking at the 21st Century Career & Community Expo 2012 hosted by Empowering Today's Professionals and produced by iPower Global Solutions.  Before I forget, a little birdie told me registration is now open for the 21st Century Career & Community Expo 2013.

    The part I really enjoyed was being on the Committee of Concerned Citizens, which spearheaded the planning and organization of this FREE high energy community expo. A rare synergy was created by merging career professionals, small / big businesses, community leaders, faith based, educational and non-profit organizations for a common cause; serving our community for the improvement of its citizens. Read the press release.

    Although not planned, I somehow became the master of ceremonies (MC) for the 21st Century Career & Community Expo, helping to guide attendees throughout the event.  More importantly, seeing the "ah hah" looks on the attendees faces, as they participated in the information packed workshops with awesome speakers like Rod Colon and Rev. Lamont S. Granby, interactions with exhibitors and the networking fury made the 7 months of non-stop work all worthwhile.  I look forward to doing it again next year.

    Certainly, I enjoyed sharing valuable information at my workshop, which was standing room only; High Tech High Touch Series: Social Media Basics to Attract New Business or Find a Job

  • Although Guy Kawasaki created the slide presentation below a few years back, it's still apropo.  Using Twitter as an example, social media reach cannot be denied.  More importantly, worrying about what other people think impacts both personal and business progress for the greater good. Everyone has a story to tell.
