Ferrazzi quote

"In my initial conversation with someone I'm just getting to know, whether it's a new mentee or simply a new business contact, I try to find out what motivations drive that person. It often comes down to one of three things: making money, finding love, or changing the world." [Keith Ferrazzi, Never Eat Alone]


  • Thank you for sharing that quote. It got me thinking on my blog, about which category I fit in to. I realized I really am out to change the world, and I would suspect that many bloggers are as well.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Hi shroom - I'm delighted that it helped to clarify things for you. I also really like that quote.

  • What if you want to change the world by finding love and sharing it (by inspiring it in others)? ;)

    I'm just playing on his words, obviously, but I often find quotes like this mislead people into thinking in the wrong categories.

    Then again, in this case, maybe not. =)
