When new people start in networking, there are particular skills and specific knowledge they need to acquire to fully grasp the concepts, product information, and company data. Those that are new to the business may also need to learn about the various marketing tools available in the marketplace. Let’s call the process of acquiring this knowledge, “the learning curve”.

Our comfort zone is challenged by concepts unfamiliar to us or by the prospect of taking action is ways foreign to us.
