The Friday DV Freebie #4

Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi

What I like best: If you want to learn how to meet and engage people from colleagues to celebrities this is the book for you. At it's core It is more than just a networking book, it is a RELATIONSHIP book. Keith contends that the true difference maker for the highly successful is the power of relationships BUT they didn't always have those relationships. They had to build them! Highlighting giving before receiving as the end all be all. "Real networking is about finding ways to make OTHER people more giving your time and expertise and sharing them freely, the pie gets bigger for everybody," says Ferrazzi.

At times you he has you wondering if he really does some of things he ACTUALLY suggests! However you quickly realize he is not kidding, ha! He truly embraces vulnerability which is something to absolutely admire.

Best Quote: "Today's most valuable currency is social capital, defined as the information, expertise, trust, and total value that exist in the relationships that you have and social networks to which you belong."
