Happy holidays and all of that.
Most of the people I work with are off for the holidays, which means I've got a pretty light week ahead of me. And I like to serve good people so -
What are you working on? How can I help?
I'm pretty versatile, know a bit about a number of things, and I try to know people smarter than me for when I don't have the answers.
So, what are you working on for goals right now? Professionally? Personally? Business, art, travel, habits, things like that?
Yesterday I wrote that we can have a chat on Skype if you're interested, and a number of people booked. (There's still a couple slots - click here for details) I'm looking forward to talking and connecting.
But if those times don't work, or you're a little shy to hop on Skype, well, let's hear it in the comments, or shoot me an email. A generally good format is -
1. Specific Question
2. Short Detailed Context
3. Re-write the the question
But whatever works for you. I've got a light week of work ahead of me, so I'm looking forward to connecting with some good people, and being of service however possible. Merry Christmas, happy new year, etc, etc. Let me know what you're working on, I'd love to lend a hand if I've got the ability.
Last week's Get Some Victory newsletter laid out a simple gameplan to get to know more people. Got some good questions about it -
I appreciate the possibility of the web for making valuable relationships. Before some time a guy interested in marketing come by my blog. In the blog there is a category about marketing. He contacted me offering to swap cases or problems to solve. First he tested me with a case to see if he will be interested in the cooperation. He liked my solution to his case. We talked over skype for things of mutual interest and a relationship started. Although we dropped the thing with solving cases we help each other with information or advice.
This is a good case of creating a valuable connection by Internet. I wish to connect with more people like that and create a mutual beneficial relationship.
The problem I encounter with creating valuable relationships over Internet is how to frame, approach the situation so the result to be productive relationship. I guess there will be failures, people are different . I need an approach that will lead the contact in a mutal beneficial relationship or by other word to help each other with our problems concerning mutual interests.
I wrote about becoming a pro poker player a couple weeks ago. I was going to write about something else, but two things sap my motivation:
1. I have wicked bad allergies to something, probably the Cedar-Elm, and can hardly focus on anything for more than 15 to 20 minutes before I start rubbing my eyes and sneezing.
2. All I really do now is play poker, so it's on my mind.
