1009. How To Build Your Dream Network | LIVE Living Room Session

Lindsey Schwartz and I always talk about creating the rooms that you want to be in, and this episode is the perfect example of how to do that. We recently got together to talk about how to build your dream network, but this time we were joined by a live audience! 

In part one of this series, we break down our key strategies for cultivating friendships and business relationships. Lindsey highlights the three specific communities that you should focus on building and exactly where to find the people that you want to surround yourself with. Plus, I explain how to get on the radar of your mentors and really add value to their lives.
