one of my mentors brad burton in his book “get off your arse” talks about a thing called the “relationship” economy and he’s fucking dead on……we focus so much on the bottom line and numbers in our business and yet we forget sometimes in no matter what your industry you’re in……..you are dealing with people…..and empathy is everything my friends…..

there’s a formula brad came up with…….meet / like / know / trust…….this is the 4 step process to birthing the relationship……

in the initial steps of starting a new venture you have to network…..it’s a fucking non-negotiable………this can be done at gigs, events, seminars and for those of you who are in remote areas we have this thing called the fucking internet!!!!!!…..recently I have made tremendous connections and have a new peer group as a result of this technology…..changed my life for the better…

networking and doing it successfully is critical in getting ahead in this crazy game called life……most people don’t network well……so what is “good” networking?????…….well for starters don’t look at people and approach them as is they will be the ones making sure your rent or car payment is made on time……you cannot bullshit a bullshitter…….you have to live as if you have tv screens where your ears are broadcasting what it is your thinking……if you think people don’t at the very least suss when you’re being inauthentic you’re a delusional cunt…..i know……I did it for years…..without realizing it my head and heart were not aligned…..talked the great talk and could spin like a champion but I saw others do better than me because (as I realize now) they were being real…

look for opportunities to see how you can help others and give some value…..find out about these people in a genuine way and it doesn’t always have to be business……..find out who are these people??…..what do they like doing????…..what makes them the person they are and not just the title they have……so many people especially in (shall we say) positions of power or influence get approached with the same shit and usually are asked for things……give these people a pleasant surprise………but do it genuinely ……if you’re looking to take out a girl with serious I doubt you’re looking to fuck her brains out 2 nanoseconds after you said “hello my name is……

the world will not come knocking on your fucking door especially when you’re beginning a new venture or if you’re an unknown……..fuck me sideways even people who have profile and / or influence network and maintain their relationships…….you can plant seeds and watch them grow but there will no harvest unless you water, fertilise (the good shit) and maintain that garden….

i love you fuckers……please remember…be nice to each other but more importantly be nice to yourselves xo
