Last Friday, I had the honor of hosting Mark Herdering, author of Hanging Out for a Living, for an all day workshop based on the principles of his book. It was a huge success, if I do say so myself, but I will let one of the attendees speak for me:

“Just a quick note to express my thanks and appreciation for all of your work and effort in getting Mark Herdering to visit the greater Houston area. I got so much out of meeting Mark and attending his seminar….I am new to SOC (joined just prior to the convention last fall) so he was a very good way for me to continue on with SOC and start 2017 off on an excellent path!” – Kevin O’Connell, Hanging Out for a Living Workshop Attendee

After hanging out all morning with Mark, picking his brain about networking, and his book, I thought it would be fun to record a podcast with him on the way to the airport. It has been 18 months since I recorded my last podcast, which becomes quite clear when you listen to the audio track. However, the content is excellent, and if you can ignore the road noise, please have a listen to our conversation about growing a business through networking.
