One of the secrets of successful entrepreneurs is great connection. There will always be people we look up to. These people inspire us. Often, we follow them on Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter or any other social network. Sometimes we buy their books. No matter who they are, we follow them because there is something about them that motivates us.
How to Connect with Successful People?
Aside from just following them on Instagram, Facebook, Youtube or Twitter, you can comment on their recent posts. You can email or you can just message them. A simple message of “ Hey, I’ve been following you for a while. Just want you to know your videos/posts/blogs/book inspire me so much…” tell them how they bring positivity in your life. I know life can be very hectic and super busy specially if the person you follow is a celebrity or is very famous. Just message them anyway. If they reply, oh wow! I know the feeling! If they didn’t reply, respect it. At least you tried to connect with them.
I’m a fan of this famous writer and I’ve been following him on Tumblr. I don’t visit Tumblr so much anymore so I followed him on Facebook instead. So glad he followed back. Personally, we’re not that close but I’m just happy when he greets me on my birthday. Hahaha I seriously appreciate it because he is so famous. Like Cara Delevingne follows him. He is humble and that’s one of the reasons why I follow him.
Why Connect with Successful People?
Because success creates more success. When you follow a certain successful person, you get to know his routine. You get to know what makes him so successful. You get to know his mantra or his creed. These people inspire you to create your own success.
Who knows if this person would collaborate with you someday. Reach out and connect. Message them or invite them for coffee.
Learn from the people you meet.
I’ve met some Founders of companies and CEOs. Every person is different, and every person can teach you lessons. A Founder of a well-known software company I met taught me stuff how to secure my WordPress websites while a Girlboss from London taught me the best SEO tips I’ve learned in my life.
There are reasons why we meet people. Some strangers would lead to your success. Always open your doors to ideas.
