Your Network = Your Net Worth

What is a network, and how do you get one? What is the rate of return when you have a top-quality network? Teens can gain valuable insight in Session 2 of this interactive and entertaining workshop series.

Your brand is not about amassing 500,000 followers on social media. Your brand is the story people tell when you’re not in the room.
