“When you have a network, or you have connections, it doesn’t occur to you to make connections actively. I had the benefit of starting with zero.”
“Now my focus is on being a networking concierge, speaker concierge, and making connections for people at a higher level.”
“Most of the business I’m doing, where the action is, is in this place where geography no longer matters, and people connect because they are on earth.”
“If you are going to do it, you have to do it in an engaging way using questions, finding out about them, and then asking directed questions.”
