How To Connect With ANYONE You Want To Work With or Be Mentored By

Brandon T. Adams
Co-Founder, Rise and Record

If you want to connect with anybody, you have to follow through, and you have to know it’s a long game.

Brandon T. Adams — advisor, video marketing expert, speaker, TV host, and producer, and one of Connor’s own B2B Mentors — joins him to discuss the right way to approach potential business connections and the power of surrounding yourself with the right people. Learn about adding value to both business and personal relationships — and the necessity of playing the long game.

Key Takeaways

  • When meeting potential business contacts or mentors, research how YOU can add value to THEM. Mentoring is a mutually beneficial relationship.
  • Never start a relationship with the idea of “helping” someone in return for an advantage. The people you want to work with will see you coming and avoid any kind of relationship with you.
  • Surround yourself with positivity, and “fire” the negative people in your life. Keep the people who inspire you to be your best self.
