Myth #1: Networking means you're looking to use people to achieve selfish goals, or opportunistically ask people for help.

Myth #2: You have to be a born networker or a natural at it.

Myth #3: You must have above average charisma to be a good networker.

Myth #4: You have to be a good talker or an overly chatty “schmoozer” to be a good networker.
