Say 'Hello' Before Dozing Off

PHOENIX -  

WHAT THE?
A local author is teaching people how to unplug network with strangers. 

THE DOWNLOAD
Most people dread talking to strangers, especially the one you're sharing an armrest with on a flight. Zachary Hall is the author of 'Don't Sleep On Planes, the title of his first ever published book. Hall grew up in Maryvale in west Phoenix, Ariz. Although Hall has admitted to dozing off on a plane, the book teaches the reader how to unplug and make human connections. The inspiration that sparked putting pen to paper came during a flight to Las Vegas, Nev. when Hall sat next to a man because he was wearing a Rolex watch. After talking with the stranger for a little while, Hall learned he working in commercial real estate, and owned properties in Las Vegas. The first chapter delves right into some people's worst fear: small talk with 'The Art of Talking to Strangers.' In this chapter, Hall talks about effective networking, and at some point, everyone you know was a stranger. After each chapter is a list of connections Hall has made and where to find them on social media. 

WAIT ... THERE'S MORE
The book is now for sale on Amazon. Hall is holding a book release party in Scottsdale on Monday, Aug. 7, at W Scottsdale.
