They often say 'your net worth is your network' or 'it's not what you know but rather who you know', and while these are true statements, how you maintain and leverage your connections is what matters. Judy Robinett is the founder of the best selling book How to Be a Power Connector, where she discusses her 5 + 50 + 100 rule to turning your network into profits. With close connections to entrepreneurs like Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran from Shark Tank, producer Mark Burnett of many hit shows, and over 10 billionaires, Judy is often referred to the power connector with the titanium rolodex. As well being a power connector, she advises for several venture capitalist firms and has seen hundreds of (un)successful pitches for seed funding. With all the misconceptions about how to get funding, the process behind it, and the reality of the outcome, we invited Judy to break it down with real examples for any entrepreneur seeking more money but unsure on how to begin.
