How To Connect With Famous People (Get that Champion!)
These are connecting tips for founders via Synergy Hub‘s amazing, Chief Connections Officer, Lynn Higgin. This woman gets into doors most of us could never dream of.
A little about Lynn first: Lynn has been known to get into doors most of us could never venture. She somehow wiggles her way into everything. Whether it’s getting cozy with Fabio, or getting advice straight from Seth Godin (yep, that’s her with Fabio Lanzoni! Just one of her many accomplishments).
So whether you’re goal is to get a champion, make a challenging connection, or just trying to approach someone in general….Lynn here is going to show us how to do it. Without being too aggressive, or awkward. After all, she is addicted to people watching.
Find their one personal spot.
Become one with the conversation.
Make the connection.
Look for opportunities.
People provide opportunities for getting connected with them everywhere. The Founder of Zen Pencils wrote about how he got connected with Tim Ferris (famous for the 4 Hr Workweek). He saw an opportunity to help Tim, sent him his illustrations. Which ultimately lead to Tim flying all the way to Australia taking him out to dinner. Then after telling Tim of starting his own business, Tim included the illustrations in the 4 hour Chef. Smart founder.
