Michael and Amy Whitehouse
Michael and his wife Amy just after getting engaged, shortly before moving to Groton in 2014.

In 2014, Michael Whitehouse came to Groton, Connecticut knowing no one but his pregnant soon-to-be-wife. Through active engagement with business organizations, volunteering, and working with the community, he was able to find a place for himself and make a name for himself.

Michael is not some kind of super networker. Rather, he simply developed some simple networking ideas that allowed him to engage with the community. It’s all about connecting with people and finding a way to be of benefit to them. By focusing on what he could give, rather than what he could get he was able to make fast friends. With the ideas and tips in The Guy Who Knows a Guy, you can too.
