3 Value Bombs
1) If you can connect with the top 1%, then you can become the top 1%.
2) Master the value-add. You cannot add value while expecting something back – it has to be a value-add without the expectation of receiving a value in return.
3) Every time you make yourself better, you become a more valuable person. And if you’re a more valuable person, then you can add more value to other people, which will allow you to connect with anybody that you want to connect with.
