Episode Info: So I'm back with the second of my mega packed email/post/podcasts, and this one in jammed with value. Today we are going to be looking at how to go into a niche or industry and quickly maneuver ourselves into a position of power. Or at least a position where others want to help us to succeed. So as some of you know, recently I decided to go back to college. Just an IT course, nothing fun. More than anything I'm liking being in a building with such a concentration of hot women.

Okay, okay. I was that kid. But I'm looking at it from your perspective. So you know how guilt by association works. You've lived on planet earth, you know hanging around the wrong people makes you look guilty. THAT SHIT WORKS EVERYWHERE!!! Seriously! Just the same as how you can look guilty by association, you can also look smart by association, honest by association, hard working by association, trustworthy by association....
