More than 600 corporations, thousands of small businesses, and six of the world’s leading business schools know the better you are at connecting and communicating face-to-face with all kinds of different people, the faster you’ll pull ahead of the competition.
That’s why they contacted Nicholas Boothman.

Talking to strangers isn’t just the right thing to do. It’s a matter of survival.
Whatever you wants in this life—romance, a dream job, a ticket to the Rose Bowl—chances are you’ll need a stranger’s help to get it. To understand this is to recognize one of life’s simplest truths: life doesn’t happen without talking to strangers.
Strangers don’t just hold the keys to confidence and connections though, they hold the keys to something even more exciting: lucky breaks.
Lucky breaks play a vital role in science, technology, business, innovation, work, home, love and play – there’s not a single Fortune 500 company president, Nobel Prize winner, billionaire or movie star that will refute this.
It’s time for a change.
Nicholas Boothman’s new book, Life Doesn’t Happen With Talking to Strangers – How to Find Confidence, Connections and Lucky Breaks Without Feeling Awkward shows readers to realize their true potential by connecting with the ocean of opportunities swirling around them.
This upbeat, easy to read book is for parents looking to help their kids get their heads out of computers and phones. For the young professionals who grew up with computers rather than a phone and face-to-face talking. For those in the competitive business world who know it is imperative that people throughout organizations open up and talk to each other vertically and laterally. And for those of us who just want to make someone happy by talking and making connections.
In just thirty days, using simple steps and real-world stories, Nicholas Boothman’s program will have readers feeling more confident, meeting new people and finding lucky breaks all around them – without feeling awkward.
