Maybe this can help you: How to crash a party | Neville's Financial Blog
I'm living in South of France, and right now I'm in the process of surrounding myself and meeting/networking with successful people and millionaires. I'm going to really push myself out of the comfort zone with this.
My question is, what's the best way to approach millionaires? And what's the best place to meet them?
I think the best and most natural way of doing it is by trying to add and give value. But what do they see as value?
I'm living close to Monaco where there's a lot of rich people so the opportunities are there, I just need to have a good plan of how to move forward with this.
Let's say for example if I see someone I know is successful on the street, or that look successful.
What's a good approach? What should you not say to disrespect them? What do most people say? Maybe MJ or other millionaires here on the forum can answer these questions from their own experiences.
I got a clear purpose of why I want to meet them, so it's not to waste their time or anything like that..
If you don't think this is a good idea, let me know why. I appreciate any thoughts on this!
Well millionaires are people, who just so happen to be exactly like you- with usually only one glaring difference- they have more money than you.
Just be who you are and talk to them like you would anyone else- and try not to be worried about the fact that they have money--- what would that have to do with anything????
People should want to be around people for who they are, not what they have... So I would not even factor this in when meeting new people...
Ps. What is your clear purpose for wanting to meet them?
Usually when someone contacts me with an overzealous "I gotta meet you" approach, I run the other way.
If you want to meet and hang out with millionaires, work for one.
Or even better, build a million-dollar company -- the millionaires will be breaking-down your door with other millionaires wanting to buy and/or invest in your great company.
Here's is a fantastic approach on how to get a Millionaire's attention: I sent Tom Hanks a 1934 Smith Corona typewriter with a typed invitation to come on my podcast. This was his response. : pics
In short: dude sent Tom Hanks a classic 1934 typewritter with a typed invitation for an interview. Gets a typed response accepting the offer.
Later in the thread:
It's almost like it had something to do with "added value" and "giving before receiving" or something...For those who may not know....Tom Hanks loves typewriters. He owns several hundred and has them displayed all across Playtone (his production office). They are all in pristine condition and don't look like they've aged a day.
That link to gimicky party crashing is immature, it smacks of deception and not honorable intentions.
If you want to meet people, contact business owners or whoever you want to meet, be straight up with them that you are ambitious and just want to network and find a mentor or two. You might strike one up who wants to help someone where they didn't have any when they started.
