    This is the first step in living the life of your dreams. A MUST READ!, June 3, 2014

    I have about 250 business books in my office. On the highest shelf, I keep 10 books facing out, as reminders to myself on how to live my life. Never Eat Alone is one of those ten.

    In this book, you learn that the fundamental key to all success is the people around you. The people who give a damn about you. The people who believe in you.

    When I was young, I thought the environment I was born into (my family, the kids down the block) was the only only pool to select your lifelines from. But after reading Never Eat Alone, I began to understand that it’s okay — scratch that — it’s necessary for you to reach out to others, others who inspire you, others who you want to help, others who you feel a deep connection with. It’s okay to go out of your comfort zone to events and conferences and make new like-minded friends. It’s not about connections, it’s not about networking — it’s about caring about other people and getting to know them on a personal level.

    It’s not the quantity of your relationships, it’s the quality.

    The quality of your life is directly related to the quality of people in your life — so if you want to live the life of your dreams — you need to foster the relationships of your dreams. Never Eat Alone shows you how.

    If you are inspired by Keith Ferrazzi’s and Tahl Raz’s book, you will find yourself behaving differently toward everyone who matters to your success. You’ll start thinking about their needs and hopes rather than your own, and you’ll work hard to help them reach their goals. And of course, if you do that, you’ll be helping yourself just as much. Before Never Eat Alone was first published, I had no idea what a Relationship Action Plan was or why it was important. As soon as I read the book the first time, it was truly an “ah ha” moment for me. I would not have had nearly the level of professional and personal success that I’ve had without this book. I downloaded the new version to see what’s changed, and it’s meaningful. Adding content on how social media (which didn’t exist when the book was first published) is necessary to keep this book relevant. Fortunately for all of us, social media makes Relationship Action Planning more precise and impactful — but you still need to know how to do it. Read this book, if you haven’t already: it will transform your life.

    Solid Advice. Questionable Motives., March 16, 2015

    I have no doubt that Ferrazzi’s approach effectively yields greater opportunity for exposure and eventual inclusion in the upper echelons of society, but I question his motives. Even though he encourages connections through generosity, his motivations still appear to be self-seeking. He gives to get. He offers help to receive help in the future. Ferrazzi navigates the somewhat complex game of social ladder-climbing by rubbing elbows attached to arms attached to hands attached to fingers that he knows will one day scratch his back. He tries desperately to sound like a humble man trying to make his way, but instead comes off as a know-it-all trying to convince himself of his own worth. I am sure I could acquire 10,000 phone contacts just as he has if I follow his advice, but I don’t believe it’s humanly possible to be of service – real service – to people I only contact and help for my own personal gain.
