3 Value Bombs
1) When you are too close to what you do, it’s hard to figure out what your super powers is. Usually your super power is something you don’t even realize.
2) People go more for quality than quantity. Engage in a meaningful conversation.
3) Provide value to important people by giving them possible solutions to their struggles; they will remember you.
