How To Create The World’s Most Valuable Network W/ Joe Polish
I have a treat for you today! Many of you, if you’ve been on the show for any period of time, have heard the name Joe Polish. And if you haven’t, well, Joe is the reason I know about 50%-75% of our recent guests.
Joe Polish is the founder of the I Love Marketing Podcast, founder of Piranha Marketer, and the founder of Genius Network, the world’s greatest high-level entrepreneur MasterMind, where I and entrepreneurs like me spend about $25.000 (I think this year I spent $35.000) to get into a room with other high-level entrepreneurs and thought leaders.
Now, beyond that, Joe is (what I often refer to him as is) the most beloved marketer in the world. He is a marketing expert, and his ability not just to market, but also to build relationships and maintain them, has put him on the Rolodex and first name basis of people like Tony Robbins, Peter Diamandis, Ray Kurzweil, Tim Ferriss, Richard Branson – the list literally goes on and on and on.
In fact, when I was hanging out with Joe, he got a missed call from, well, I won’t say who, but a very very impressive name, and he is constantly in contact with some of the world’s most powerful and influential people.
Now, I wanted to know how. How does someone go from, as Joe always says, being a dead broke carpet cleaner living on credit cards, to having literally the most valuable network of anyone I’ve ever met. There are heads of state who have a less impressive and less valuable network than Joe Polish.
I wanted to understand not just how he did it, but what are the methodologies, what are the techniques, what are the skills, that we can learn from Joe’s journey, and his rise. Well, I think you folks won’t be disappointed. This episode delivers a ton of actionable, SuperHuman relationship building tips and tricks and strategies, and you’ll also get to know one of the more interesting people that I’ve met and had the pleasure to spend time with.
A small note: we did record this episode in person at the Genius Network headquarters a few weeks ago, therefore the audio quality is not what you would normally expect, but it is certainly worth powering through.
So, without any further ado, let me present to you my SuperFriend, Joe Polish.
