112 Jeff Bajorek is Not a Connection Collector

We’re just getting started with networking month and we’ve searched far and wide for the greatest experts on the subject. Suddenly, we realized, “Hey, we have a networking expert in our midst.” Jeff Bajorek steps out of the host seat and goes under Christie’s microscope as today’s guest.

Jeff is all about quality connections filled with people he can offer help to. He’s not a fan of racking up huge numbers of followers at the expense of serving others. This episode won’t be filled with hacks, workarounds or backdoors into networking. Instead, Jeff offers real world strategies that will lead to real business connections that if you play your cards right can become real customers.
