The key to finding success in life isn't about who you know, but how you serve.  

Change the world, one person at a time. 

College freshmen are lectured about networking on their first day of class. Young professionals race to another boring party so they can be seen and shake hands with someone who might be able to help them - just like the business books and podcasts have instructed. Creatives are chronically obsessed with and depressed by the number of likes, views, and followers on their social media. Anyone embarking upon a new path or business venture has heard the key to success lies in networking - who you know and how they can get you ahead. But according to entertainment attorney Mark H. Maxwell, this is not only untrue, but potentially dangerous to those hoping to succeed. 

Networking Kills lays out what the Bible and Jesus say about true success. Weaving scripture with Maxwell's own stories from his professional career and pop culture illustrations (John Mayer, Bruce Springsteen, Kim Kardashian, Johnny Cash), Networking Kills examines the need for cultural change concerning our pursuit and definition of "success" in every area of life and shows how serving is actually the key.

"Christ taught, 'If you want to be great, you must become a servant'," Maxwell says. "And, Martin Luther King, Jr., made it clear, 'Anybody can be great, because anybody can serve.' Even music business super-manager Scooter Braun (Justin Bieber) says, 'Don't live for yourself.... Live for others...that is where you will find true riches in life.' The heart of networking is rooted in selfishness, taking and using, while the great leaders teach us that true success comes through giving, loving others, and serving generously."

In Networking Kills, Maxwell shows how:

Networking kills creativity
Networking kills authentic relationships
Networking kills life
Networking kills love

He then lays out the amazing benefits that can come from living a life that is focused on service:

Serving erases fear of failure
Serving erases conflict 
Serving creates purpose 
Serving creates value
Serving creates provision
Serving changes the world
