EP302 How To Network: Narrow Vs. Broad Networks

The invention and success of social media tell us one thing – that people are hungry for connections. Connecting with others is one of the ways to grow your business and advance your career. The question is, who are the people you should be connecting with so you can see yourself or your business blossom and thrive?

Today, I share the significance of identifying your connections and cultivating your network. I explain the difference between a narrow network and a broad network as well as the difference between the network that men and women have. I also discuss how these connections impact your overall success — or lack thereof — as you examine your circles of influence.



“As a woman, what’s really important is you put in the time to not only build relationships in that narrow network but to cultivate your broad network as well.” – Eleanor Beaton




Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:


  • The difference between your narrow network and your broad network
  • The challenge for women regarding the kind of network they usually have
  • What makes it easier for men to access opportunities, information, and resources to help them get ahead

  • “Narrow network, broad network. You want to make sure you cultivate both.” – Eleanor Beaton
