“Relationships Open Doors That Money Can’t” Ahmed Alomari

This is the #1 quote that I live by each day. 

2019 seems to be the year of the ME FIRST APPROACH. The self entitled World owes me everything, I want to get paid for every single little thing that I do’ motto. 

One of the biggest mistakes I see entrepreneurs make, young or old, is when they come across a celebrity, a high net worth individual or a person in a position of power the VERY FIRST thing that they think about is THEMSELVES.

How can I extract money from this person?  How can I get this guy to listen to my demo? How can I get this person to invest in my business or idea? The answer is simple:


Stop being selfish and think about it for a minute is what Ahmed Alomari advises to everyone. 

That person is BUSY. He/she has 100 people coming at them for money every single day. Their spouse, their children, their friends, their emails are flooded with business proposals what makes you think that they have the time or interest to stop their already hectic life to take on yet ANOTHER proposal? 

Now don’t get me wrong i’m not discouraging you from approaching these types of people because hey you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. But more importantly what I’m trying to get you to focus on is How to Stand Out from the crowd. 

How can you do this you ask? Simple By being AUTHENTIC. 

Try to do some homework, find out what what void this individual might need filled. What problem might he/she have and then help them fill that void. In a World full of vultures its kind of nice to find someone that doesn’t isn’t just trying to get into your pockets. 

Now if you couple that with someone that actually can actually HELP you solve a void or problem and your Golden. 

You don’t even need to ask for anything in return. Say hey you are happy to help, be genuine and he/she will ALWAYS Remember that. 

Then down the line when the time comes when you reach out to them they will be that much more willing to take your call. To set up that meeting. To make that key introduction for you. Hell perhaps they even might invest into one of your ideas. 

Your degree doesn’t mean jack sh*t in the real World. It’s not always what you know but WHO you know and the value that you can bring to the table.

I’m going to leave you with this Elon Musk quote:

“You get paid in direct proportion to the difficulty of problems you solve”
