The article presents a narration of the author's suggestions on expanding network for the enhancement of life and career. To build and maintain your network, you need to be visible. That means taking on projects at work that may not be exciting. When people begin to incorporate networking as a part of their lives, I encourage them to start with anonymous networking. As you gain confidence in your networking skills, it is important to broaden your network. One way is to connect people with each other. Another way to expand your network is to have one or two hobbies away from work. You get to spend time with a community of people you might not otherwise meet. INSET: Ten Ways to Network Successfully.
