Episode 30: In Which Vicky Goes Networking (No, Really)

I went to a networking event! If you’ve kept up with the podcast, you would know that I would rather stick pins in my eyes than go to a networking event. Well, my good friend Todd sneakily invited me to one and I went…and it wasn’t terrible! Today, I talk on how I crafted my 40-second introduction pitch that ended up attracting quite a bit of positive attention and made me  stand out from the crowd.
