If you’ve ever heard the word "networking" and were instantly flooded with images of uncomfortable cocktail parties, awkward business card exchanges, and cheesy Zoom calls, it's probably because that's how most of the world is still running networking events.

Luckily there are people like Jordan Harbinger that are making the world of networking much more enjoyable and much more worth your time. Jordan is a lawyer that left the corporate world to, in his words, "read books and talk to smart people." His podcast, the Jordan Harbinger Show, receives over 11 million downloads a month and features insights and strategies from the world's most successful people.
