Giveaway! The Power of Who: You Already Know Everyone You Need to Know by Bob Beaudine

Networking is Not working for Americans any longer. This highly respected and well-connected head hunter shares his philosophy on what really works in identifying what your dream in life is and how to get it.

With his unique 100/40 principle, Beaudine takes the traditional networking concept, shakes it up and rebuilds it, explaining that individuals already know everyone they need to know.

He shows readers that they have established a powerful network simply by interacting with people in their daily lives. Beaudine explains this new way to achieve dreams clearly, in a step-by step fashion using his well-tested knowledge to break it down and help readers tap into the Power of Who.

My Review:
If you are looking for a job or know someone who is, here is a good tool to help. In fact, if you have a job but would like to pursue your Dream Job, this is a book you need to read. This hardback 5-1/2" x 8-1/4" self-help book contains anecdotal stories illustrating the author's guidelines. Chapter 8 alone is worth the price of the book.

Hi Sally,
It intrigues me that I already know everyone that I need to know I bet he is right...we just need to let everyone we know what we are looking for..... Well that's my take on it anyway. I'd sure like to win this book so I get on with my dream job!!! : )
Thanks so much!

Husband is out of work, he could really use this book. Social networking is not easy for men, at least not my man.
