Strategy: Snowball of Credibility

Our goals are never small.
We want to have powerful careers and social circles.
Realize that the easiest way to do this is to start small and build up.
When holding a Meetup, don’t just invite the CEO of a company.
Instead invite an analyst, then use that credibility to invite a person one level up and so forth.
This builds a momentum of credibility.
Eventually you will have so many people in your roster and even the CEO might want to be included.

The key is to keep pushing. 
Once you have one person, don’t stop asking for the next level up!
Most of us are just happy with one, and that’s fine. 
But know that we’re usually putting an artificial limit to our potential.
