The Case for Freenoting (AKA, I'm A Crap Networker)

30 minutes

In the first episode of The Freenoter, Tamsen and Tom make the case for speaking for free, why it is a great way to succeed at networking, and how freenoting is the most efficient way to win over prospects without selling. They also doff their caps to this week's Real Hero of Speaking, Mitch Joel, and reveal their own not-so-secret Manhattan recipe, the T&T.
