You did it! By following the prompts at the end of each chapter, you’ve developed your own personalized Reach Out Strategy Plan that has both your long-term career goals and the practical pieces you need for your first full week of executing your specific Reach Out Strategy.

If you follow your Reach Out Strategy Plan and Reach Out to one person every business day, in one year you’ll have Reached Out to about 260 people. 260! And assuming a response rate around 40 percent, you will have gotten around 104 responses. That’s over a hundred people you’ve talked to over the past year that you wouldn’t have if you didn’t start a Reach Out Strategy!

You can be the lead in your own life.
