24 Jul Don’t I know you?
The more people you have in your network, the more opportunities and adventures come your way. This means you have to reach out to others; constantly do things to help others be successful, get out of the house and office, accept invitations, go to events, talk to strangers, ask questions – and most importantly – follow up and keep in touch. Success is not luck. Success is your network.

As a Breaking Bad addict, I all but tackled Walt Jr. aka RJ Mitte. We had a lovely conversation about what he is doing now (lots of non-profit work) and got a picture to share. Thanks RJ, you rock.
