Glenna Crooks once read in W Magazine that famous “Iron Man” actor Robert Downey Jr. credits a ‘pit crew’ of people around him with helping him live his life better. This small mention planted a lasting seed that grew into Crooks’ decade-long exploration of the ways that others support our journey in life.

“The NetworkSage: Realize Your Network Superpower” serves as an all-encompassing life roadmap, detailing the eight networks that support adults’ lives. These networks include the five birthright networks: family, health, spirituality, education, and community and the three coming-of-age networks: career, home, and the ghost network.

Crooks reminds readers that they are the ‘connector in chief’ among their networks, which is why any network can have an impact on every other network.

“In today’s hyper-driven modern world, knowing about and engaging our networks well is the key to success. We are never alone on our journey no matter who we are,” Crooks said. “Whether we’re a professional seeking work life balance, a working mother, a caregiver, or an older person intending to remain in our home as we age, when we realize the superpower in our personal networks it’s easier to thrive in life.”

In “The NetworkSage,” readers of all ages and walks of life will see the importance of knowing about their networks and engaging them well to help them succeed, whatever their goals and aspirations.
