with host artist Miriam Schulman
Ever wonder how some artists have thousands of follower while others just a few hundred?
How some people seem to know EVERYONE be EVERYWHERE and have no trouble getting press?
I’ve wondered that too which is why I was surprised to learn that you become famous one person at a time.
If one of your goals is to finally get in a gallery or get noticed by the press, well guess what, you’ve got to meet people.
The reason I invited David Burkus onto the podcast is because I am a business book junkie, and I especially enjoy those that are based on research, like Friend of a Friend. I just finished Friend of a Friend and I wanted to invite David on the podcast so we can dive into some of the finer points that will help artists like me build our networks so we can sell more art. Sound good?
In this podcast, you will discover…
- The psychology of being famous
- Why you might want to attend that high school reunion after all
- Why you can skip networking events in order to network even better in more authentic ways
- Friend of a Friend . . .: Understanding the Hidden Networks That Can Transform Your Life and Your Career by David Burkus
- Listen to David’s book for FREE with your free 30 day trial of Audible
- Download the free workbook that goes along with his book. It’s all about becoming a better networker WITHOUT attending icky cocktail parties or networking events. All you have to do is enter your email and David will send it to you.
- Free facebook group: The Inspiration Place. If you’re not already a member, I’d love to have you!
David Burkus is a best-selling author, a sought after speaker, and associate professor of leadership and innovation at Oral Roberts University. His newest book, Friend of a Friend, offers readers a new perspective on how to grow their networks and build key connections—one based on the science of human behavior, not rote networking advice. He’s delivered keynotes to the leaders of Fortune 500 companies and the future leaders of the United States Naval Academy. His TED talk has been viewed over 1.8 million times and he is a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review.

Listener shout out of the week!
“These podcasts are changing the way I think about things. The ‘Making Connections’ podcast with Michael Roderick for instance, clarified the distinction between being a ‘networker’ and a ‘connector’ in a way I had not thought about, and gave excellent tools for making networking a cumulatively productive career building strategy. And I love how Miriam challenges her guests as soon as she hears anything that smacks of generalization or un-thought of gender bias, in a way that really deepens these conversations. Gonna start sharing them in my newsletters and with my clients!”
