Creating Real-ationships

A conversation with Joseph Luckett, author of Zero to 100: The Gold Standard of Global Networking

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

  1. What is the title of your book?

Zero to 100 “The Gold Standard of Global Networking”

  • What is your name, title and website?  

Joseph Luckett – Founder and CEO of Zero to 100 – www.zeroto100.io

  • What inspired you to write your book?

My friend, Laura Boedges mentioned in one of our meetings over coffee, that I should write down my networking method so everyone could use or have access to that process.   I believe that with education and exposure, we can resolve the lack of information about networking organizations being readily available to nearly everyone in every community, and we can address the lack of diversity within those groups.  I made it my mission to celebrate everyone I came in contact with and to help unify through authentic relationship building.

  • What do you want others to get out of your book?

Courage.  Courage to know that you can go from a zero to a hero by following the right process. Regardless of where you come from, look like, live, or how new to networking you might be, it truly is for everyone if you follow the right universal process.

Our book was put through a 12-week study of real-world situations and our participants had a 234% increase in career advancement, a 279% increase in leads, and a 170% increase in income.  We found the benefits gained were directly tied to how close they followed the principles of Zero to 100.  We believe that courage comes from confidence in the value you bring to others and that Zero to 100 will help create and build that confidence through the principles found in our book

  • What is something each of us can do to SHINE?

We can only shine when we open your heart to all {regardless of religion, race, gender, or beliefs} and give each person you meet the best YOU experience possible!  Networking is an ever-changing game with one constant: REAL-ationships.  You will have an impact on everyone you meet – so give them, all of them, your best!

  • What does Thriving mean to you?

Thriving to me is never-ending growth.  Giving freely without the intent, motive, or expectation of receiving.  At the beginning of my networking journey I found that giving freely ( advice – assistance – referrals – or  making warm introductions) just wasn’t the case with everyone I met and wondered how I could fit into this world.  I quickly discovered that effective networking ”connecting” is when you have the other person’s best interest & motive in mind 100% of the time.  When good intentions and motive are at the forefront of your interactions and connections with others, you will eventually reap what you sow and quickly feel more supported and encouraged when you have intentionality in your REAL-ationships!

  • Are you planning another book or other launches? 

Absolutely!  We have a series of books that are in the works so we can connect with all types of networkers and relate to, and with, a variety of business owners.  The entire Zero to 100 movement includes books, a proprietary digital platform & app designed to help you network with real data to measure success, and networking events. The first arm of our company comes with the release of our book Zero to 100 –  with events, app, and the platform to follow. Our mission is to provide experiential learning and scientifically designed systems to develop better networkers. resulting in more inclusive and diverse networking groups and thriving REAL-ationships.

  • Where can we get your book?

Our book is currently available through: Amazon, and in select bookstores as well as you can find the hard cover available through our website www.zeroto100.io beginning in June.

  • How can we follow or get in touch with you?

  • What is one thing you would tell others if they want to bring their message forward?

When you serve the entire human race and don’t cherry-pick it you allow tremendous growth to take over and open doors you could only dream of.  Treat every client or customer with the same level of love, care, and respect and give each an unforgettable experience.

  •  Anything else you would like to add?

Never stop growing.  Utilize both parts of Self-Development ( they are 2 words)  “Self”  requires the reading, listening, and watching of motivational and inspirational content.  To grow oneself. “Development”  is the application of everything you discovered during the ”self” process. 

If “self-development” is actually working, you will see a change in behavior, habits, and discipline levels and notice how your associations evolve.

This type of growth is necessary for continued success and will give you the ability to pour value into everyone you meet.
