He was a record setting advertising director at Let’s Go publications, an All-American springboard diver (props to Adam for being an athlete as well) and a professional magician.
This is an exciting interview because Adam and I talk about our differences in leveraging LinkedIn and I’d love to hear what side of the coin you fall on.
Grant talks about the power of weak ties and strong ties. Also, the most important relationship that most miss out on which is dormant ties. These are those dormant relationships that are underutilized and we discuss how they can be the biggest opportunities for you.
