About The Book

From media personality and communication expert Rachel DeAlto, learn how to connect with anyone, anywhere, with this “ultimate guide” (Jess Ekstrom, author of Chasing the Bright Side) for improving your social skills in every setting including networking events, interviews, dates, and more.

We all have the desire to belong, to connect. And in the age of social media, making personal connections is more challenging than ever.

Millennials and Zoomers tend to have high anxiety at the thought of meeting new people and often fumble during in-person relationships. They struggle to connect, don’t know how to make friends, and subsequently flounder in workplace relationships. Sound familiar? But relationship expert and media personality Rachel DeAlto knows that it doesn’t have to be that way. Everyone can be likable. Everyone can be confident. And anyone can achieve this authentically.

With a fresh, fun, and humorous tone, relatable provides a step-by-step guide that will take you from socially awkward to awesome. You will finally feel more comfortable in social and professional settings so you can let your true character shine as you form lasting, authentic, and meaningful connections with everyone in the room.


Chapter One: Far from Alone



Do you feel anxious in social settings? If so, why do you believe you feel that way?

Describe your ideal self in a social environment. How do you feel, what are you doing, who are you talking to? Write it as if you are there in the moment.

What steps can you take (even before getting to Chapter Two!) to improve your relationships?

MINDSET: I am open to new connections.
