My job tip is that there are no tips.

It's all about generating value from which you get to retain some for yourself.

I run a free turkey farm for out of work execs where I continually have to pound in that there are no shortcuts. You have to help others before you yourself are helped. The Universe seems to have a magic scale that works it all out.

My favorite tale is when I helped an IBM sales engineer in just being a “good guy” and he later hired me for a great job 15 years later. You can't make this stuff up.

It's the hard grunt work of helping and learning that eventually delivers what you need.

If I should win, please donate it to your favorite charity. I've already won a lot in life. Don't forget. I expect that selflessness will come back 100 fold when the Universe rewards me at the next slot machine I play 🙂
