FLASH! How To Network Authentically | Strother Gaines


At this year’s Inbound conference in Boston, MA, we had the pleasure of meeting Strother Gaines. 

Strother Gaines is an entrepreneurial coach, a theater owner and a Unicorn, dammit!

Strother, fresh off his breakout session, “How To Network Without Being An @sshole”, shared with us pointers on how to network comfortably, while remaining true to yourself. 

This week on Small Business War Stories, Strother joins us from Boston, Massachusetts. 

Three reasons to tune in this week:

  • Learn the common misconceptions on how to network and the common mistakes people make as a result. 
  • Learn about how Strother employs the “Ask not what your country can do for you…” adage in his networking. 
  • Learn about how leaving a person with a positive experience can use to real, organic opportunity in the future.
