#001: Givers and Takers
Gary Vaynerchuk describes the internet community as a small town social mentality.
To win in relationships. Give.
To win in business. Give.
This hit me when I went to an event last weekend where I was asking people why they were there.
Most people said because they wanted to learn or meet person ABC to get XYZ in return. Then I met a man who said I'm here to give as much as I can. It caught me off guard.
I realized he was stood out by creating value and setting him self up to win. This also kicks in the law of reciprocity.
The key is to patiently and consistently give value without expecting anything in return. Giving at its truest form.
