If you were to go to a university business class, you might learn skills such as finance, marketing and management. Those skills are key, but there is another key skill that’s usually not taught.
That skill is building relationships.
The business people who are able to cultivate and nurture relationships with the key influencers in the industry are those who go the furthest.
In fact, just one connection could change your life if it’s the right one. Larry Benet explains more in this video, filmed at the Titanium Mastermind in Los Cabos, Mexico.
THE POWER OF RELATIONSHIPS
When Timothy Ferriss wrote The 4-Hour Workweek, he was an unknown author. What did he do to jump to the top of the New York Times best seller list? He built relationships with influencers.
Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built Apple together. Would either one of them have been able to do it on his own? Probably not. The same goes for Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield, who together started the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.
Matt Lloyd was unknown when he started MOBE. He accelerated the company’s growth by building relationships with industry influencers such as John Chow and several others.
SUCCESS IS ABOUT WHO YOU KNOW
Success is not about what you know, it’s about who you know.
You’ve probably heard this many times, but if you dismiss it and say, “I already know that,” it probably means you don’t know it well enough.
Do you know POI’s, or people of influence? How well do you know them, and most importantly, what do they know about you?
A strong relationship with a person of influence could be the one thing that takes your business to the next level.
