What was the biggest change in the food side of things that that you made in your life?
“Everybody's different, but you just have to test different things.”
How has travel helped with business in general?
“Travel is huge because it lets you unplug because if you're always working, working, working and you're always doing the same thing…”
How do you eliminate scarcity mindset?
“A lot of business owners, including myself, before I used to think, let's say you make 10 bucks…and then most business owners want to keep 10 bucks in their own pockets, want to use it for their own experiences or whatever, because they're scared because they don't know where the next $10 is going to come from…”
Can you share with me your most successful or favorite networking story/experience that you’ve had?
“To your point of networking in today's world, a lot of networking parties or after parties or whatever you want to call them, come with an open bar, which a little bit of liquid courage helps…”
How do you stay in front of or best nurture your network community?
“Typically, I just give a lot. Gary’s (Vaynerchuk) book, Jab, Jab, Right Hook should be retitled to Jab, Jab, Jab, Jab, Jab, Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook. Because typically, I just give as much as I can and then when I give something to someone, they typically stay in front of me asking, how can I help you?”
What advice do you have for the professional on growing their network?
“You’ve got to get out there. There's no easy way about it. You’ve got to go to networking events. You’ve got to go to speaking seminars. You’ve got to get out there somehow, someway.”
Digital networking or traditional networking?
“You're complete stranger online. In-person, people feel you. I don't know how to describe it. They feel your vibrations and they feel how good of a person you are and your energy levels. I mean, there's definitely a different sting to that because you can't get that online.”
If you could go back 20 years, what would you tell yourself to do more or less of regarding your career?
“Definitely be more patient. Before I had always used to, you know, if something didn’t go my way, I would get sad or depressed or ‘oh my goodness, the world is against me.’ Uh, now I just rely on myself. Whatever happens, it's my fault.”
We’ve all heard of the 6 degrees of separation… Now, who would be the one person you’d love to connect with and do you think you could do it within the 6th degree?
“I mean, I'm connected to everyone I really want to be. There's no one I really can't get to or haven't gotten to that I want to talk to.”
What book are you reading right now?
“The Fourth Agreement is one of my favorite books ever. It's changed the way I think, the way I approach life.”
Any final words of advice for our listeners?
“Never settle. And especially, momentum is huge in business. That's probably the biggest thing. Once you have momentum, you don't want to stop.”
