What if you’d rather jump into a cage of hungry lions wearing a meat suit than wade into a room full of strangers?

We’re taught networking is important, but few of us are taught to do it well. For many people, networking causes real social anxiety, discomfort, and even distress.

Lunching with Lions will help you overcome networking fears with insight and awareness.

People will be using this book as a tool to expand their networks for a long time.
