Like Mike… if I could be like Mike

Does anyone remember the commercial about Michael Jordan where everyone wanted to be like Mike? You should too, only I’m not referring to "Mike" Jordan, I’m referring to my friend since elementary school, Mike Herman. Ours is an industry about relationships. I’m sure you’ve heard it before: it’s all who you know, who knows you, and how well.

Mike Herman isn’t in our industry, however, he can tell you about every person from New Rochelle High School in our graduating class and the two before and after… and more.

He knows who’s married, what their careers are, how many kids they have, who’s divorced, who’s in a same sex relationship, who’s in jail, who’s in rehab… and quite frankly I don’t think I could navigate through Facebook without his help.

Why am I sharing this with you? Because not only does he care enough about people to know what’s going on in their lives, be he’s FUNNY!!! That is important to YOU in an industry of relationships. So be like Mike! Care about people, be interested, be funny… and maybe they’ll blog about you.
