Erica Young an expert in the field of network science and founder of the Reliants Project, a blog and podcast that educates people about the invisible impact of networks on our lives and how they shape our wellbeing, relationships and community.

Erica has 5 years experience working with the Venture Capital firm Anthemis, where she's been applying network science principles to make useful connections and drive success for portfolio companies.

I've known Erica Young for almost 5 years and was always fascinated by her enthusiasm for network science. But when she'd bring it up in conversation, I'd find it interesting without ever really 'getting it'.

Over the last 6 weeks I've helped her produce The Reliants Project Podcast - a show about about how networks shape our wellbeing, relationships and community and now, I can safely say that I understand where her enthusiasm comes from.

There are few things in life more important than our relationships with other people, but we spend very little time consciously thinking about them. After being immersed in this material in the last month and a half, I have made some small but profound changes to the way I build and maintain relationships that are already having a positive impact.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The networking myths that hold people back from proactively building relationships
  • How understanding network science can help you progress in your career
  • The habits of superconnectors, including running events and making introductions

We also talk about some of the core concepts in the field of network science, the science of success and much more.
