In business and in life… connections are everything.
It’s not just about who you know, but also who the people you know know… and how they can offer a value and service to you (and others).
There is no better example than the internet marketing industry that connections are demonstrated so well. If you’ve ever had the chance to attend an internet marketing conference you know all too well that it’s all about making those face to face connections and building upon them after you leave the event. This face to face contact helps solidify billions of dollars in new business deals that simply can’t be done through email.
These same principles that apply to internet conferences also apply to life, business and everything in between.
This is exactly what we are going to be talking about in the latest episode of the Rise of the Entrepreneur.
Larry Benet is known as “The Connector”, and I first had the pleasure of meeting him while at a conference in Las Vegas.
Long story short… I was invited to a private dinner by a good friend of mine, which Larry was also attending. The takeaway here is that if I didn’t make that initial contact with my close friend years ago, I likely never would have been invited to the party and end up connecting with Larry.
No matter if your business is just starting, offline, online or a multi-billion dollar company, the value offered through this episode is off the charts and it’s one of my favorites so far. The real life experiences and value that Larry offers in this episode is just like sitting in the room with the likes of Richard Branson or Tony Robbins and learning from the best — both of which Larry are good friends with!
