In her first book, she told you how to improve your life, luck, and career through personal networking.

Can't decide which industry organizations or clubs to join? Use the 2-2-2 strategy, says Andrea Nierenberg, author of ‘Million Dollar Networking' (Capital Books, 2005). Attend two meetings. This lets you experience the group, meet members, and get an idea of the organization's long-term goals. Meet two people and exchange business cards. They can answer your questions about the organization and introduce you to other members. Arrange two follow-up meetings (breakfast, lunch, or just coffee). Even if you don't join, you now have two new contacts. And if you do join, these new contacts can multiply into many more.
