From the Inside Flap

Far-reaching and unpredictable opportunities await you in the people you encounter throughout your day. The people you don't even know yet offer the chance to uncover a prospect, gain access to influential people, enlist a new supplier, or any number of other potential outcomes, including just making a friend. Everyday, random encounters really can change lives, when you make them happen the right way and leverage the connection at the other end.

Talk to Strangers explains how to stand out and tap the potential of people you don't know by taking notice of who is near you on the bank line, in the coffee shop, or the ticket counter at the airport. Author David Topus, who has built his million-dollar consulting practice through the people he has met and the contacts he has made in unplanned meetings, shares his insights and secrets for turning encounters with complete strangers into profitable business and personal relationships. His life-changing message is that we should "always connect," which means going beyond online relationships and engaging in the serendipitous, real-life interactions that have unlimited potential to supercharge your business, accelerate your career, and enrich your life. Talk to Strangers offers Topus's proven and tested advice on:

  • Why there is opportunity through the people you meet wherever you go

  • The four key beliefs of successful random connectors

  • Techniques for creating comfort and trust quickly with complete strangers

  • How to present yourself and your capabilities so others want to be associated with you

  • Ways to optimize and monetize your newly established connections

  • How to make sure you create a good impression online when your new contacts inevitably Google you

When you connect to those in your everyday world, you'll discover the unlimited opportunities and life-expanding potential of chance encounters.
