1. This post is chalk full of great suggestions! As someone with major social anxiety, networking – or events in general – can be ultra-terrifying. I need all the help I can get, and I can definitely attest to the fact that when I take time to prepare physically and mentally, and feel confident in the way I look, it goes a LONG way! Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is the exact razor I use! I swear it is so hard to find a razor that doesn’t cut me up when it’s fresh and then dull quickly. The Venus has been perfection. Great tips on getting ready to socialize — I’m an extrovert and yet I feel so nervous before I go to events with people I don’t know. Funny that.

  3. I loved these tips! I’m an introvert too and my main goal for this year is to go to more events and get comfortable networking because it is SUPER important!


  4. Aww, I love these tips! I find that I feel more confident when I’m comfortable with myself and what I wear ;p To be honest, fully accepting oneself is a hard lesson for a lotta ppl but so important.

  5. I have been a fan of Gillette ever since I learned how to shave. And I agree, faking it until you make it as far as being confident can get you far!

  6. I have mad anxiety and avoid networking events because of this! I go to them on occasion, but it’s always so hard and it’s so draining. Great tips, I will keep them in mind for sure.

  7. Kileen, another “trick” I’ve used is: take the focus off me. Look around for another introvert and make it your aim to help that person. By the time you’ve chatted with her, learned why she’s there, you can introduce her–and yourself–to someone else. It sort of gets the ball rolling.

  8. These are great tips! I am an introvert and I get butterflies all over if I have to go somewhere by myself. It also takes a lot of courage not to back out from attending. I do find it easier to talk to someone one on one rather than a group but I do my best to be approachable even if I am not. I do like the idea of holding something even if it’s just water, it’s a good way to keep my hands busy and therefore relax a bit. I guess it’s like chewing gum. It keeps my mind busy elsewhere.
