This Sh!t Works: Better Networking with Julie Brown


Everything you wanted to know about networking with podcaster, speaker, and author Julie Brown of This Shit Works! 

You’re probably familiar with the phrase, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” My guest, Julie Brown is a networking expert and shares in this episode just how true this common idiom really is. 

85% of companies know that building relationships affects their bottom line and the success and profitability of their company, but only 26% have an actual strategy for building and maintaining relationships. – Julie Brown 

We’re not taught relationship-building and networking in school (at least, not on purpose). Julie Brown fell into the art and science of networking and training others to do it better, by realizing how important it was for the companies she was working for.  

The more she grew relationships and learned about others, the more consistently she got new opportunities and bigger projects. 

Tune in and hear: 

  • Julie Brown’s backstory and how she got to where she is today and became an expert in networking and business building through relationship marketing 

  • Why networking and building relationships are so important

  • What the myths and misconceptions are around networking 

  • How you actually go about building relationships and tangibly growing your network 

  • What she sees as inauthentic in the world of networking and where people most often go wrong 

  • How introverts and extroverts can use their natural tendencies as a superpower when networking 

  • How to ask dopamine-inducing questions rather than killing the mood 

  • And MORE!
