Professional networking is broken.

Have you ever been introduced to someone's supposed "connection," only to find out they barely know each other? It's more than awkward - it signals how broken today's approach to networking has become.

Even saying the term "professional networking" feels cringey. Yet, at its core, networking remains essential to building meaningful careers and unlocking opportunities.

But let's not focus on how it is; instead, let's imagine how it could be.

How it should be.

The networking paradox

We set out to build bridges and forge meaningful paths in our careers, yet somewhere along the way, the idea of building a network became less about genuine connections and more of a numbers game. We're encouraged to make connections, often indiscriminately, under the guise that more is always better. The essence of connection, the very heart of networking, got lost in translation.

Ironically, as our professional networks expand, it becomes increasingly challenging to tap into their full potential.

Our brains struggle to keep track of who knows who and what opportunities might be hidden within our connections. As a result, we often limit ourselves to our inner circle when seeking help or advice, missing out on the wealth of untapped potential that lies within our extended network.

But it doesn't have to be this way. We believe in a world where genuine connection and opportunity aren't mutually exclusive. Where authentic relationships and the power of an expansive network can coexist and thrive.
