HOW TO NETWORK LIKE A BOSS
The best way to be highly influential is to be human to everyone you meet. That’s Chris Fralic’s motto, a successful VC and former Oracle salesman.
Building a strong network is key in any industry, but especially as an online entrepreneur. Strong relationships unlock new doors.
Fralic has 7 rules for becoming insanely well connected:
- Convey genuine appreciation.
- Listen with intent.
- Use humility markers.
- Offer unvarnished honesty.
- Collaborative brainstorming.
- End every meeting/conversation with the optimism you’d like to have at the start of your next conversation together.
- Don’t fake it till you make it.

THE KEY TO SELLING LIKE A WOLF
Everyone remembers Leonardo DiCaprio’s starring role in Wolf of Wall Street. But what is it that made his performance so effective and powerful? He channeled Jordan Belfort’s tonality.
Which is what Befort’s success boiled down to – the range of tones he adopts when he sells.
He wants you to guide you, to confide in you, to let you know he really, truly cares.
He may be infamous for his black-hat ways. But you cannot deny he knows how to sell. Very well.
“At the highest level, sales is the transference of emotion, and the primary emotion that you’re transferring is certainty,” Belfort says. The trick is “to sound absolutely certain, even when you might not be feeling absolutely certain. That might sound like I’m telling you to be unethical. And I’m not.”
