Making the decision to move from employee to entrepreneur is a powerful step for all of us. But a lot of people don’t know where to start. In this episode, I talk to Erick Holiday about how he discovered my podcast, and how surrounding yourself with powerful people is the first step anyone should take when becoming an entrepreneur.
Adding value is something that we’ve talked about time and time again on the podcast. Erick mentions that connecting with powerful people is not enough; you have to be able to add value to their lives. This includes providing connections between others as well. Being a super connector can add an insane amount of value to others.
Based on what he learned in my course Build A 7-Figure Network, Erick got the courage to ask a mentor to lunch, and spent the entire meeting asking about his mentor. Being interested, instead of trying to be interesting. Naturally, Erick’s mentor found enough value in the conversation that he turned the tables and began asking Erick about his interests and goals. Within minutes, he had texted multiple CEOs, and had an interview for Erick with a major company.
