damngoodadvice2When I first met Mike Del Ponte, he had recently joined Branch Out to head up User Acquisition. Since I was looking to interview “networking gurus,” who better to ask than a guy who was at the center of building the largest professional networking service on Facebook (0 to 25 million users in 16 months!).

Mike has since moved on to become co-founder and CEO of Soma – maker of the world’s most innovative water filters. He has some great insights, is one heck of a nice guy and, in the video below, shares his thoughts on…

  • The biggest mistakes he has seen when it comes to networking – and how to avoid them
  • 3 things you can do TODAY to become more effective at networking
  • other tips to build stronger professional relationships
