I was on a Strategic Coach call, and Coach Member Eric McKibben said something interesting about simplification: “Joe may know 1,000 people in his rolodex he can call upon. That’s complex, and people are complex. But what Joe is able to do is simplify these people down into a couple core characteristics or traits, and quickly link an idea he or somebody might have with the right people.”
Then one of my Genius Network® Members, Lee Richter, said: “Joe is the Relationship Genius. To give you the one person to solve your problem he had to kiss 1,000 frogs. He has so many relationships he had to kiss so many frogs to find the ONE to tell you about.”
People seeing me as a Connector means they ask me to connect them with different individuals. What they often don’t realize is this: In order to make introductions, there is a lot of work, effort, energy, and 30+ years behind it.
They don’t see the necessity to sift, sort, and screen.
They don’t realize HOW I go about edifying people and making connections. Most people completely undervalue all of this. Yet, this is one of the reasons why Genius Network is so valuable as a Connection Network for many Right-Fit Entrepreneurs…
And, what’s more, in order to make connections, many people don’t factor in having to first know a lot of people to even have an IDEA. On the Strategic Coach call, Lee Richter said, “It’s the idea that leads to the idea, that leads to the idea, that leads to the idea. It’s the third or fourth generation from that possibility where the magic happens. It’s the third or fourth idea that’s really powerful.”
People might get annoyed with ideation, not realizing if it wasn’t for all the idea generation, they wouldn’t even know what to do. Ideation and creation are necessary in order for there to be progress. As Elon Musk said, “If you don’t make stuff, there is no stuff.”
