Why You Must Throw More Parties – Deb King w/ Jeffrey Slayter

January 29, 2015

Here’s an interview I did with Deb King where I shared the tips I learned from Sir Richard Branson and my own personal journey growing up in Silicon Valley.

At one point I asked Richard “How do you make more money?” and he said “throw more parties!”

I thought that was a brilliant advise! In addition to that, I recommend these:

  • Invest in yourself
  • Get curious about everything
  • Surround yourself with people who “up” your game
  • Get out of your comfort zone
  • Never eat alone
  • Focus on experiences
  • Develop your speaking and presentation skills
  • Be perfectly imperfect (you don’t need to be perfect to begin)

and don’t forget to laugh at yourself!

    I must say I was smiling the whole time as I listen to this interview. I can sense this inner happiness from Jeff and an eagerness to let everyone get in on the game of success. Thanks for these tips!

    Hi Jeffrey! My boss actually does the lunch thing in his business dealings (we are into social media branding) and what I initially thought as just another ruse to leave the office (yeah shame on me), actually did the trick for most of our successful and long term business relationships with clients. He says, there is something about lunch that seem to relax people and make conversations flow naturally.

    I love that idea of not needing to be perfect to begin with! Takes the weight off as result of the expectations we bring on to ourselves, which makes us inadvertently fail. If only we can tap into this mindset and easily activate it whenever we feel the pressure to be at our perfect self. Easier said than done though.

      Yeah! How do you recondition years and years of this mindset? In a corporate setting, how can you not aspire to be perfect when you’re eyeing a promotion?

    I try to surround myself with successful people who inspire me. I find that I learn from the fascinating tidbits of their experiences. We can’t help the ones we normally end up with, like say, our officemates and neighbors, but it is a powerful process if we enrich and empower ourselves with the experiences and learnings of those who know what they are talking about.
