"I'm not a big "Ice-Breaker" guy. I like getting to know people personally. The AOSN Academy helped me see that I can network my own way and not how everyone just tells me I have to do it. I learned that I can lean on connections and relationships I have already made to build my network.
Finn Bluemle, Student
As a first year student at Vanderbilt University, I was told all the time by family, friends and professors that I needed to go out and network. I didn't really understand why and I certainly didn't know how to or feel comfortable doing so. After enrolling to the AOSN Academy however, I now have the skills, confidence and know how to network with anyone I want, all the time. Thank you to the AOSN Academy and Carl and Evan for this invaluable experience!

I feel like this course put me not one, but two steps ahead when it comes to the topic of networking and branding myself better to other firms and recruiters. I have spoken very highly of Carl and Evan to my roommates and friends that need help too!
Ben Coyle, Student
I was pretty clueless about networking going into the AOSN Academy but I learned a lot about networking and how to go capitalize on my new skills. I am excited to start building meaningful relationships to help my career.

I couldn't have landed this new gig without networking. It makes such a difference in the professional world - and I'm so glad you're educating students and professionals on the importance of it!
Back to Basics
In order to network properly, you must first understand what networking truly is
Once you understand what networking truly is, you will then learn why we all should be networking, regardless of your personality, and how it can lead to a more fulfilling and successful life
Honing in on your skills will take some time
Starting now allows you to build your base while leveraging the fact that you are a student
Do you have dreams of becoming successful, running a company or starting your own - you need strong relationships to do so
Is your goal to land a job by the time your graduate? Without strong relationships, you blend in with everyone else
When hiring at EnergyMark, we get to know the candidate and what their interests are, how they can work most efficiently, and evaluate whether or not they can build and cultivate relationships. Skills get you far in your career, however, relationships and strong connections are how you truly set yourself apart. I'd advise every college student to enroll in The AOSN Academy.

Who is this course for?Any college student who needs help learning how to best network. We tailored our course for students in college because college is a time when you should be leveraging the fact that you are a student and your next transition in life will be entering your career.
Why is networking important?Because whether or not it is fair, relationships are what run the world. People know people. People talk. People listen. If you aren't building a strong network, you are: - Losing out on job opportunities - Losing out on promotions - Leaving money at the table - Running an uphill battle - Not allowing yourself to grow as an individual, both personally and professionally
Why is this the course for me?Great question. Who are we? Carl and Evan are both serial entrepreneurs who have built their businesses based on relationships. Look at how Evan and Carl met. They were randomly paired up together in a golf tournament back in 2016 that led to a friendship and now a new business. You absolutely do not have to listen to us, but we can promise you that without strong networking and relationship building skills, you are making it tougher on yourself to succeed in whatever industry you currently work in, or want to work in.
There are hundreds of books on networking, why wouldn't I read one of them to learn how to network?Great question! You can. Hell, you should. Evan and Carl have read several dozens of these books themselves. Why should you take our course, though? Because as good as books are, they are only words on a page. We will actually talk through and show you how to network best.
Why does my college student need this course?Because as a parent, it is your job to help grow, shape and guide your child's development. If your student can master the skill of networking, then their career, life and success will be because you invested in them.
This seems expensive, how much is it?$99. That's cheaper than: - A college textbook - A night out with friends at a bar or restaurant - A date - A pair of nice sunglasses - A new purse Invest in yourself and watch your success grow.
Most online courses are over $200, what's the deal?You're college students. This isn't meant to break the bank. Quite frankly, this should be seen as an invest in yourself for the future and the success that you hope will follow.
Is this worth $99?Evan and I have spent a combined 20+ years failing and failing and failing again to provide to you the best possible tips, tools and strategies for meeting new people and building strong relationships. We believe it is, but do you?
How long will it take to see results?That's up to you. If you take what we learn and put it into practice the moment you finish the course, then you can meet with someone new that day. To build a strong network that works for you? That will take years. Without starting now, it will be too late when you need it. The good thing is, you've been networking your whole life and you just don't even know it. Unlock the course now and you'll see what we mean.
When does the course expire?Never. You purchase this course once, you'll have access forever. You'll also have access to any new content we add down the road. All at no extra cost.

However, he is armed with the tips, tools and strategies to overcome those fears.
