In Chapter 9 of 10 in his 2010 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, real estate development acquisitions director Brett Goldman shares how he networks and why it has helped him build a long-term career in real estate development. Goldman makes it a priority to attend at least one networking event per week. This can be a business breakfast, lunch or dinner as well as a lecture or industry event. Talking to people and overcoming the nervousness and uncomfortable feeling when meeting new people helps Goldman better connect with his industry. These connections prove progressively more useful as Goldman develops his real estate career. Brett Goldman is a Real Estate Acquisitions Director at Triangle Equities - http://www.triangleequities.com/ - in New York City. Goldman holds a BA in General Studies from the University of Michigan - http://www.umich.edu/ - and a masters in real estate development from Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation - http://www.arch.columbia.edu/ .
