Whiskey & Work Podcast

Oct 11, 2022

Rich Cardona founder of Rich Cardona Media and former U.S. Marine and host of The Leadership Locker podcast — joins Kelsey this week to talk about securing vital connections with “big name” people, the importance of the company you keep, and juggling it all while prioritizing a family. These long time friends dive deep into some of these strategies, so grab a pen and paper for this one!

What we’re talking about…

  • Kelsey introduces Rich and shares about the origin of their friendship 
  • Rich shares the story of how Kelsey was the first person to navigate him towards teaching in his business
  • How to assess someone based off the company they keep and how they can then add lasting value into your life
  • Regardless if it is personal or professional, Rich shares examples of using this strategy when assessing Kelsey as a friend or from a business point of view — spoiler, she passes the test
  • The two talk about the growth and changes of their businesses 
  • They dive into their own perspectives on conventions the good and the bad — and how the most important catalyst in these events is yourself
  • Rich lays out his step by step plan of how to gain a connection from someone you believe will add meaningful value into your life: 
    • 1) invest in something of theirs
    • 2)  get to know the company they keep and understand how you can add value into their lives (and act on it!)
    • 3) Finding the true value of this person and how that can help you better yourself and business
    • 4) Stay in touch with them to create a lasting relationship
  • The two talk about the importance of paying this forward once you start to find success in your business
