I have a close circle of friends but a big network and that's you, Market America! You're my network and I've learned so much from you. At the same time, I've been able to share my knowledge with you and work with you to help you be the entrepreneurs you've always wished to be. I believe that your network is what makes or breaks you, which is why networking is so important and what's networking all about? Conversations. You need to be likable in order to keep good people around you and that's all about the conversation you have when you first meet! Read on to become a great conversationalist.
