What are some good ways to get connected with more people? I have a LinkedIn, but I feel like that isn't very good at expanding contacts yet. I've searched on the internet for people, but I couldn't find any people. I want to meet more people at different jobs and careers and understand what people are going through. So I would like some advice to meeting new people. Is there a way that people go through it and find the people they want to speak with? I don't know how to find people or even talk to them.
Online sources are one way.
However, the most important way to make connections is to do it in person, so that you are able to develop a personal relationship.

Best of luck!
Keep me posted. I would like to follow your progress!
One way to connect to people is to find something you are passionate about and then get involved in the events. For example, if you are passionate about volunteering you can be involved in the events of some NFP organizations and just move up along the way if you can (like a board member or head of committee). That way you are not only expanding your connections but also doing something you love with people that have the same interest.
Hope this helps.
