It’s a really powerful question right? Suppose instead of exchanging business cards, or rambling about your business triumphs, the next time you find yourself speaking to another like-mind, you ask him or her this question. Ask each other. How can I support you?
I picked this up at a meetup that I went to some weeks ago. As a way to get to know the people around us, we were asked to turn around and speak to someone we’d never spoken to, look them straight in the eye, and ask them two questions: a) what would you like to accomplish this year and b) how can I support you?
Consider that if you might. Next time you have the opportunity, surprise someone and ask how you might support them in whatever it is they are trying to overcome and/or accomplish. You’ll find that you will create deeper connections with people vs just exchanging a phone number, follow, or business card.
So today I wanted to ask you all…what will you accomplish this year, and how can I and/or OG go about supporting you?

If I missed anyone, I am sorry. The volume of requests, and then wading through said requests is madness!! Y’all accomplish a lot in 1 month!
If you folks want to appear above, share your accomplishments with us every Friday. Note the format above. The easier you make it for me to figure out why you are awesome, the more likely it is that you’ll find yourself here.
Each month I try to bring you my favorite articles, books and casts. I am a total information glutton. More inputs than I could possibly action in my lifetime. I don’t recommend this, but it sure makes recommending good reading/listening easy!
I am committed to devouring 2-4 books each month, and reporting back on which made an impact. I will also list books that are absolute essentials. Here’s a few recent and past favorites:
