Key Takeaways

  • What happens if you just say yes?
  • You don’t realize how many options you have.
  • You could go from installing drivers on someone’s server to being the most followed rock guitarist on the internet (or whatever your passion is).
  • Get around gatekeepers by being confident and asking questions.
  • What if you asked the universe every day for something ridiculous?
  • Social engineering and social networking are the same skill sets.
  • “Important people” are busy because they are busy doing things. Offer help before you ask for help in return.
  • Being famous on the internet is not difficult, it’s just clicking.
  • Think of social media as a process problem, not a people problem.
  • Look for emerging social networks, get your foot in the door and establish credentials.
  • Define your goals, find people to connect with that are doing that, have a plan to connect and build a relationship.
