“I think anyone can be a great, great superconnector whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert.” - Ryan Paugh Click to Tweet   In today’s episode I sit down with the Superconnectors themselves, Scott Gerber and Ryan Paugh. Scott and Ryan founded the YEC, an invite-only organization for entrepreneurs under 40 back in 2010, which quickly became one of the most elite organizations of its kind. Since then they have partnered on virtually everything they have done from founding a service-based company to The Forbes Leaderships Councils.     I had the pleasure to sit down with these two fine gents just before their book, Superconnector: Stop Networking and Start Building Business Relationships that Matter hit the shelves back in February and it has since become and instant hit.   From understanding your natural style of connection, to forging partnerships capable of standing the test of time, and how to become a Superconnecting rockstar in your your own circles, in this episode of Community Made!   Reviewer of the week: Nate Lesnik   Select Links and References Superconnector Never get a real job YEC   People mentioned in this episode: Kyle Kramer Steve Sims   Richard Branson Morely Safer Penelope Trunk Chris Farley Gary Vaynerchuck JJ Ramberg Ryan Holiday Tim Ferriss Clay Hebert Michael Roderick Neal Strauss David Hassel

Community Made
“If you want a world class network, you need to invest in world class people.” Jayson Gaignard Click to Tweet   I’m a firm believer that all problems can be solved with the right peer group.

S2E14 - Making the Most of Mentorships
Episode of
Community Made
If you want to be great at something, find someone who’s the best at it and learn from them.” -Todd Herman   Full disclosure: I am a huge Todd Herman fan. I met Todd during one of the darkest times of my life, and my connection to him has had a substantial positive impact. This man owns real estate in my mind when it comes to mentorship, and for good reason. His digital book, The Definitive Guide on Finding & Becoming a Mentor is the most underrated piece of literature on the subject I have ever read. In this episode of Community Made, the two of us sit down to discuss the many myths of mentorship, Todd's framework for finding a great mentor, his personal playbook on how to be a great mentor, and the many benefits that can be found in mentoring other people...   Reviewer of the Week: Christy Burch   Select Links and References The Definitive Guide on Finding & Becoming a Mentor Seeking Wisdom by Peter Bevelin Contagious by Jonah Berger Give and Take by Adam Grant Luxy Hair Coaching the Mental Game by Harvey Dorfman 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing How to Get a Meeting with Anyone The 90 Day Year
S2E13 - How to Learn from Mentors Instead of Mistakes
Episode of
Community Made
“The best mentors know this: Instead of giving answers, they ask better questions. Instead of speaking in absolutes, they offer points of view. Instead of giving direct advice, they share their first hand experience.” Jayson Gaignard Click to Tweet   Looking backwards on my career, I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be where I am without the guidance of a few great mentors that took me under their wing. I have learned that you’re never too old to have a mentor, you’ll need different mentors at different stages in your life and career, and no one person will take you from good to great and excellent to exceptional, so approach it with the goal of creating a network of mentors instead of looking for the whole package. Why the wisest investment is wisdom, how to make the most of a mentoring relationship regardless of which side of the equation you might fall, myths of mentorship that we tend to take as truths, and the 4 stages of mentoring, and so much more in this episode of Community Made!   Reviewer of the week: Na Ka   Select Links and References How to Find and Become a Mentor by Todd Herman I can’t make this up by Kevin Hart Back Pocket COO by Cameron Herold Vivid Vision by Cameron Herold The Perfect Calendar Steve Sisler’s DISC profiles
