139: How to Become a Master Networker to Increase Your Income, Happiness and Startup Success with Jordan Harbinger
Jordan Harbinger is one of the most influential people in entrepreneurship today, thanks to his popular podcast The Art of Charm. His show recently hit its 10th anniversary, and Harbinger has interviewed some of the greatest minds and personalities in the startup space and more.
Starting off as a law school graduate who landed a job as a financial attorney on Wall Street, it didn’t take long for Harbinger to become quickly disillusioned with the life that being a big shot attorney offered. Within a year, he left his job to work full-time the Art of Charm podcast, but not before taking with him some key lessons from his stint on Wall Street.
During that time, Harbinger learned of “the third path” to success that no one seemed to talk about. The one that wasn’t about working long hours, or even being the smartest person in the room, but instead was all about networking. He found that the key to success was all about sharpening your social skills in order to develop the key relationships you need in order to succeed.
That lesson turned Harbinger’s life around and opened up a whole world of possibilities that he never thought possible.
