If you beg people for money, that’s all you’ll get. They will have over the cash, and you’ll take it and chances are burn right through it. Without knowledge, money is worthless. It won’t get you ahead in life.

If you want to get ahead you need knowledge.

You also need people’s help, and support. There’s simply no way you can do it all yourself. One of the best ways to get people to help you is by having them take you under their wing and coach you.

The best way to get help is by asking questions. You can even ask questions you know the answers to, and it’s ok to play ignorant from time to time. The more someone feels like they have helped you by giving you knowledge, the more they are going to care about your success.

On this episode of Have It All we are joined by Nathan Latka. Nathan is a young entrepreneur who has learned more about the technical and social side of business than most people twice his age. He’s learned that if you care more about people’s mindshares you’ll be far better off in the long run.
