When I first started looking for a job the networking aspect scared me the most. My thought towards cold-calling/emailing was that I was bothering whoever I was trying to contact. It took a long time for me to be comfortable with it, so I find your tenacity amazing.
The craziest thing to me now is how much I enjoy receiving cold emails or DM's asking for my advice or help. Now I always think to myself "maybe this person enjoys helping others like I do" which gives me incentive and confidence to press send.
Anyways, great post!! I'm really excited to listen to your podcast on my commute now!
Glad to hear that!
I'm the same way, I love being able to help people, so I hope that others have the same response. 😁
