9 Ways To Become A Better Connector

  1. Focus on how you will help people or reduce their suffering.
  2. Treat others like you’d be like to treated.
  3. Appreciate people and acknowledge people.
  4. Give Value on the spot.
  5. Create education-based help with your expertise that people can then give away to others.
  6. Connect one person a week to someone who can solve their problem or help them reach their opportunity.
  7. Give people elegant ideas
  8. Help people make better decisions.
  9. Get as close to in-person as you can.

“People say time is money. Maybe relationships are money. When you wake up and turn off your alarm clock or whatever, you know, piles of money don’t show up. Money comes from the development of relationships. People that you hire, people that you work with, the Value you create in the world. Create more Value. You’re going to get more money.” Joe Polish.

Plus, Listen For,

  • Where he would ‘start’ as a marketer if he was starting out today.
  • The Philosophy behind his ‘superpower’ (Connecting).
  • How to reconcile the unquenchable need for input.

“I just have a massive curiosity. If people are not really curious, I don’t know if they’d be willing to do the type of work I’m willing to do. I care, I mean, I care a lot about certain things.” Joe Polish

  • His appreciation for minimalism and meditation.

“One of the challenges with being a salesperson is you can sell yourself into all kinds of messes…For very successful people, success traps are harder to get out of than failure traps because you’re making money, and you have all this fame, notoriety, but you hate your life.”
