If networking and meeting new inspiring people in your field is one of your resolutions this year, my latest app of the week can help with that.

I came across 'Shapr' while scrolling through Instagram. Instead of dismissing it, I pressed on the profile and was surprised -- there's an app that operates like LinkedIn and Tinder combined!

Although I am not a fan of Tinder, Bumble or dating apps, I love the idea of being able to swipe through people who share your interests and could potentially broaden your network.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5owiCS9cww

Networking is one of the best ways to make connections, meet new people, and move your career forward. 'Shapr' allots you 16 people daily to swipe through until you make a match!

It's that easy, and of course free.

Also check out their Twitter and Instagram for some daily inspiration.
