This App Knows Your Inner Circle Is a Secret Weapon for Success


We've all heard the saying, "You're responsible for your own success." When applied to our careers, this couldn't be truer; professional progress requires passion, perseverance, and confidence that only we ourselves can supply. But, it's also true that every so often, when the going gets tough, we all could use a little assistance. In the midst of career decisions, when faced with challenges, or while looking for new opportunities, having a trusted inner circle of people to call on can make all the difference, and Shapr is here to help.

A Few Shoulders to Lean on

So what exactly is an inner circle? In your career, an inner circle is a small group of people that provide unbiased and informed guidance. Keith Ferazzi, the author of the bestselling book "Who's Got Your Back," is a prominent advocate of having a professional support system. He says your inner circle is comprised of people that know you well, are aware of your goals, and have a unique connection to your life. Your inner circle is in many ways your very own board of advisors — and choosing this board wisely is crucial to your success.

There's an App for That

There's plenty of research to guide you in choosing an inner circle. However, knowing exactly what's needed sometimes isn't enough. Luckily, there's Shapr, a professional networking app that makes it incredibly easy and fun to assemble your inner circle. Shapr shows you daily curated suggestions of like-minded professionals based on your experience, interests, and goals.

It only takes a few minutes to set up your profile and begin swiping on the professionals that you feel would be great connections. You'll get 15 local professionals in your daily batch, and in a matter of minutes, you can start swiping to connect. After you and the other professional swipe right, you can move into a chat function to set up a call or coffee.

The app was created to help everyone find an inner circle that can help them reach goals, find new opportunities, and create inspiration. The team behind Shapr understands the power of networking and wants to make it easier for you to get where you want to go in your career. We can get far on our own merit, but sometimes it's who you know that makes the difference.
