Have you ever attended a networking event and felt completely awkward and out of place?

Have you tried to read a book or take a course to try to be “more interesting”?

You are certainly not alone. Networking in professional settings is broken for several reasons. If you’ve viewed my live presentations, witnessed my work on radio and television, you would never guess that I struggled with extreme social anxiety and never felt like I “fit in” within the world of business leaders and networking events.

I felt invisible for so many years and hundreds of events where I wanted to summon the right words to say but couldn’t find the words.

I felt this way with no remedy in sight … until I stumbled upon a simple framework that I labeled as the Eleazer Power Circle Method.

In the video below, I walk through the basics of the Power Circle Method.
