Tim, thanks for continuing to put out solid actionable content. I don't know if you watch Futurama or not but with the new goatee you kind of look like future fry.

Ignore his wisdom and let's just focus on the fact he's shaved his head. Clowns.

I'm old enough to remember when "an ask" used to be called a "question." What I don't know is why this terminology changed. I also struggle with networking, and never knew why until I was diagnosed with Asperger's. I do not know how to make friends, and group of people terrify me. At work, I did that. "What is Ruby on Rails?" The response was, "Really? Why do you work here?"

Nice different approach to networking, especially useful for people early in their business and brand ventures, when cash and time are limited.

This was great! One way I built my team of mentors was simply asking who was the best and then asking them if for any amount of money they would be there to advise me when I needed them. Sometimes I hired them to work along side me. Sometimes I volunteered for free to help them. But it's surprisingly how many great people are never asked for this kind of help.

"deep on the end of my ignorance pool" nice phrase, Tim Ferriss!
Alexandro Coutinho (1 year ago)
It really makes me think about the book Never Eat Alone, by Keith Ferrazzi. What's cool about what you're saying is that you give some practical techniques on how to execute it. And I love it. Thank you, Tim.

What happened if you went to a networking event with the intent to learn and people told you about what they did just to end with a so what do you do and you reply "I am not having a product or service to offer". What if you paid 1450 dollars for the PLATINUM BADGE in SXSW 2018, went there in a T-shirt and said to the moderator "Hi, I really like topic X, Y and Z. I don't have a book coming out or any product or service I want to offer. Who can I spend time with?". I think to really not come off as an annoying marketer you have to have nothing to offer. But then again, people will wonder why you paid 1450 dollars without any intent but to meet people. My problem with those events is that people are not genuine. I like honesty and genuine people. Just say: I am here to promote my book, it's called X and you can get it here. Or "I am not having a product or service to offer. I am here to see what people offer." and stick to it. Tim sold his book well because he did good internet marketing or went to the press, but the intent was clear. "This is X, he wrote a new book/created a new service that does Y. X, can you tell us a little bit more". Then it's authentic, it's genuine and should I like the guy and the product, I might consider it.

Tim is a great example of how your passion makes you attractive. Dude looks like a semi-pro meth cook but his personality still manages to shine through.
Gianfranco Palumbo (1 year ago)
so the tip is to ask to get introduced to people, buy those people drinks and once drunk, ask them a favour

"This is my dog Molly, and this is a wooden wine glass." Best opening ever!!! Lol
Ryan Sponseller (1 year ago)
This video is much better than the other promo videos. Tim's posture and lighting is much better. His dog comes in which is fun. He needs to wear pants instead of boxers or whatever he's wearing :p Please Tim, do not lean over in these videos, it is fueling the haters.

Joan Addley (1 year ago)
Thanks for the awesome advice! Traditional networking is one of the most difficult things for me to do because it is not sincere. Using Tim's advice of going narrow and long much better matches up with my style of engaging with people :)

Not sure these tips apply to any kind of work environment and with any kind of people. How would it be perceived if a woman invited men for a booze? Would she be taken seriously? Etc

Is a wooden wine glass still called a glass despite being made out of wood? These are the real questions Tim.

Awesome books and life hacks.
Raul Tiru (1 year ago)
I love the going narrow and going long part a lot. That's definitely the way to go with the people you truly feel connected to. It depends on what you're trying to achieve, but you could definitely also connect online. The best way is to give first and ask later. For instance: On https://globalowls.com, professionals first donate their knowledge to nonprofits and build can build meaningful relationships because of giving first. It feels far more natural to give first than to ask first.

Tim - this is some great advice about networking. Playing the long game works, and you just might make some friends in the process.
Japan Travel Planet (1 year ago)
This is very useful advice and these tips make a lot of sense. It really is about building a solid network of people that we can hopefully grow with over time. Also, very nice video production! Thanks.

lovetownsend (1 year ago)
I have a question, is book royalties really 10%? I googled it and everywhere says yes, but I just can't get over it. 10%?! That sounds just monopoly corrupt. How is it YOU write the book but THEY get the money?!
lovetownsend (1 year ago)
Ty for long detailed answer. Sounds like a monopoly though, why does everyone make it so casual that 10% isn't a big deal, it's SOOO low. That's like you building a house then the real-estate agent getting 90% of the buy. Idk... just sounds so unfair yet common place
ChannelTonto (1 year ago)
10% is pretty standard from my understanding of the publishing industry. And in children's book publishing it's more like 5% to the writer, 5% to the illustrator (as opposed to at least 10% each, which some might assume). The other 90% goes to the publishing process (editing, layout, design, printing, marketing hopefully), the distributor and the retailer. From my understanding, the retailer is the one who makes most of the money out of book sales, not the publisher. You can self publish of course, but you will then have to take on responsibility for those other aspects of publishing (or pay someone to do them for you) as well as marketing your book and finding ways to distribute it and sell it. The end result will likely be much more work, fewer sales, a higher percentage per sale, but also higher direct costs to you per sale. Being a writer is not as easy as it seems!

Jesus I've been doing it wrong. I'm so impatient. I typically just overhear a conversation and cut right in and "Ah, so you're interested in blabla, then you're gonna like this!".

Is he like, losing it??
Chernobyl Denier (1 year ago)
Lol sorry but this is so incredibly specific and niche, it probably applies to 0.00001% of your listeners. Like the gist of it is just to talk to people and not be pushy, which is common knowledge to most people. But he just spent 7 minutes telling us to find a moderator at an event, then ask them who they recommend to talk to, then repeat the process until you barge your way into a group of people who are talking about technology, you should interrupt every now and then to ask what they are talking about, then you pray that they don't ignore you and eventually ask who you are (which is not a guarantee), then you tell them you're launching a book, and in reality they'll probably just turn a blind eye to you and think you're trying to market a product to them, while they're just talking about DevOps.
