To build your network in 15 minutes, find out where the people you already know work

Day 2 of growing your professional network in 15 minutes each day.

A quick recap of Day 1, you spent 15 minutes making a list of people you know.

I don't care if you came up with 10 names, 5 names, 3 names, or 1 name.

The important part is that you spent only 15 minutes taking one small step to build your professional network.

Day 2 is about taking the list of people you created on Day 1 and finding out they work.

Just like Day 1, you're only going to spend 15 minutes on this today.

Get your timer ready and set it to 15 minutes. Go to LinkedIn.

For 15 minutes, you are going to look at the list of people you know, and, next to their names, write the name of the company they work for.

If they are not on LinkedIn, skip them and come back to them later, but try to search for most of the people on your list.

Set your timer.

Ready, set, go!

Don't worry if you didn't get through the whole list.

As long as you find at least one person you know and you have figured out where they work, you're a success.

That's it for today.

Tomorrow, we'll learn about some of the companies these people work for and figure out if they go on the target company list or not.
