On the Schmooze

Welcome to On the Schmooze, a weekly podcast that features a mix of interviews and solo shows. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. Interviews are with talented people from different fields. We explore how they built strong networks and overcame challenges on their way to becoming successful leaders. I identify a key take-away from each interview, something you can put into action that week that you’ll benefit from for years to come. In the show notes I provide resources to help you get started. Solo shows are shorter episodes where I share practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. Podcast inspired by Dorie Clark, Pat Flynn, Jonny Nastor, Dale Carnegie.

Today’s guest believes everyone has the seeds of a great network within reach and that to establish genuine relationships we must proactively meet people in person.

She is an investor, advisor, speaker, author, and the founder of an advisory firm working with growth companies. She has invested in several innovative private companies which solve old problems in new ways.

Inspired by the experiences of thousands of people she has interacted with over her thirty-year career, she wrote “Meet 100 People: A How-to Guide to the Career and Life Edge Everyone's Missing.” I know you’re going to appreciate how she reframes networking to make it accessible, joyful, and life-affirming. Her work is especially relevant for young professionals looking to build valuable life-long relationships.

Please join me in welcoming Pat Hedley.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership means inspiring others to pursue a common and worthy objective.”
  • how she was shy growing up but learned to push herself through helping her entrepreneur mom.
  • how she joined speech club in high school and how it was her first glimpse of her leadership potential.
  • her “meet 100 people” campaign, the impact it has had, and the opportunities it has presented.
  • the professor analogy.
  • how she networks by sending information to people when it reminds her of them, and by scheduling get-togethers with people.
