3 Ways to Networking Success in Brazil

success in BrazilSuccess in Brazil is all about who you know.

I’ve never been a great natural networker, maybe it was due to me being a bit of a homeschooled goober growing up or possibly due to the fact that I didn’t see the importance of it…

Whatever the reason, I did the ol’ proverbial face-plant after arriving in Brazil!

Why?
