[Guest Post] How To Become a Master Connector in 5 Easy Steps
I recently published an article on Entrepreneur.com where I focus on five easy steps on how to become a master in connecting people. I wanted to tell you about this post here, and if you like what you see, you may like to read the rest.
Anyways… this is how the post begins
I bet you know someone who’s got an enviable Rolodex of successful entrepreneurs, investors, journalists and more. Makes you wonder, How do they do it? — right?
How does this person know so many people, and why do so many people care to call him or her a friend?
You may assume that the secret sauce lies in being good at connecting, networking, meeting, and greeting. But, in fact, none of those talents fully explains why this person has a network you envy.
I know this because I myself spent three years connecting with every successful person I came across. I jumped on skype. I interviewed all of these new acquaintances for my book The Successful Mistake. And then I assumed I “knew” them.
I sat back with a grin on my face because I too would soon be one of those master connectors. Only . . . that didn’t happen, and the reason was that I made a giant mistake: I connected with lots of people, but those connections didn’t translate into friendships.
Why? The reason is, I spent so much time reaching out to new folk, I forgot to speak to the ones I’d already spoken to. I focused on quantity over quality, and this is not what a true master connector does.
