Thank you Mark Maxwell for sharing these ideas at TEDx. We are all here with the ability to live a richer life if we serve each other. Thanks.

I knew I wanted to get my hands on Mark Maxwell's book "Networking Kills" when one of his Belmont students quoted it in a conversation we were having over a cup of coffee. What a simple concept: "Networking" narrows our focus and our life experience. "Serving" connects us in a meaningful way and throws the gates of opportunity wide open. Let the adventure begin!

Mark Maxwell was an early believer and important counselor for MercyMe twenty years ago. I am thrilled that through his book, Networking Kills, he continues to authentically mentor and counsel the next generation concerning true success - success that is only found through serving others.

Culture teaches us to measure everything through the question: "how does this benefit my life?" This book does the exact opposite by changing the question to, "how does my life benefit others?" Mark Maxwell's book, Networking Kills, is more than just a novel idea - this significant message can help steer a generation towards true success. But more than just this generation, I believe it will help anyone, in any stage, re-evaluate their motivations and navigate their life back to what truly matters. I know it's doing that for me.
Natalie Grant - Singer/Songwriter
With Networking Kills, Mark Maxwell is seemingly flying in the face of what the assumed "best approach" is for building a successful career in the music industry ... network, network, network! When in reality, every person doing business - including us creatives - are all truly in the service industry. Mark's call to think about our roles in the context of service is refreshing and spot on. Kudos, Mr. Maxwell!

I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Mark Maxwell for some time now. In an industry and culture that encourages us to be more and more self-focused for our own personal gain, Mark's book is a fresh and necessary perspective that is desperately needed. It is natural for us to think that our gifts and talents are for us. Mark does a great job of leading us through his book and turning this paradigm upside down. No matter where we are on the journey we need to constantly be reminded that we are called to serve not be served.
