28 Feb Scott Gerber and Ryan Paugh | Super Connector! – Stop networking. Do this instead.
Mitch Matthews interviews Scott Gerber and Ryan Paugh, co-authors of the new book,
“Super Connector – Stop networking and start building business relationships that matter.”
Scott Gerber is CEO of The Community Company… an organization that builds and manages professional communities for media companies and global brands. Ryan is the co-founder and COO of The Community Company. He also co-founded Brazen Careerist… a career-management site for high achieving young professionals and ambitious college students. They’ve had tremendous success in a short period and they credit their networks for that. In the interview, they cover specific strategies for building great business relationships that make the difference.
Today I interview Scott Gerber & Ryan Paugh, the co-authors of the new book:
Both authors are successful entrepreneurs and executives. They both come from humble backgrounds and they have built successful businesses and impressive personal networks. Now, they’re sharing how they did it.
One of the things that makes this book so unique is Scott and Ryan are very different people. One bold and brazen. One quieter and introspective. One extroverted. One introverted.
So their strategies for expanding your connections and influence are helpful whether you love to network… or if you throw up just a little when you think about “networking opportunities.”
Scott Gerber is CEO of The Community Company… an organization that builds and manages professional communities for media companies and global brands.
He is the co-founder of YEC, an invitation-only organization for successful young entrepreneurs, and Forbes Councils, a collective of invitation-only organizations for world-class executives. He’s also special advisor to Forbes Media, and author of the book Never Get a “Real” Job.
Ryan is the co-founder and COO of The Community Company. He first co-founded Brazen Careerist… a career-management site for high achieving young professionals and ambitious college students. He then went on to co-found YEC with Scott. YEC’s members now generate billions of dollars in revenue and have created tens of thousands of jobs.
One of the things I’ve learned from interviewing 200+ successful people over the years is that almost all of them point to their network being at the center of their success. Friends who encourage them. Business relationships who help get them in the door. Advocates who help to seal the deal. Fans who help them spread the word.
Your network matters. Solid connections help us to reach our potential. Great relationships make life richer.
That’s why I’m excited for you to hear this interview.
I think you’ll dig it.
