As Dr. Misner explains in the interview, never ask anyone for anything if you haven’t already built up social capital with them…

… and the easiest way to do that is to focus not on being just interesting… but on being interested.

In this episode, Dr. Misner reveals his secret for building heaps of social capital that will take your business to the next level.

“Can’t Miss” Moments:

  • 2:15 Ivan’s $8 Billion Success Story: how his 190,000 member networking group produced more shared revenue than a small European country in ONE YEAR. (Not a metaphor — this actually happened!)
  • 3:05 Ivan’s secret to success: It’s not what you know, it’s how well you apply it. (This tiny tweak is all that separates amateurs from mega success stories like Erin Brockovich and Buzz Aldrin.)
  • 7:05 The absolute worst question you can ask a mentor, and what you should be asking instead.
  • 8:15 Entrepreneurs are either “on fire” or “sucked dry.” How to ensure you always stay motivated and passionate, without getting bogged down by stuff you hate.
  • 9:22 The #1 mistake Ivan sees 190,000 entrepreneurs make every single week (and what one smart florist did to blow away the competition … with nothing but a drugstore rose).

What’s the one thing Ivan’s done that’s produced the most surprising result?

The one thing Ivan’s done is create a dead simple offer that landed him a deal with Richard Branson.
