Episode 79: “I Got A Guy” - Keys to Building a Strong Chicago Network with Gary Davidson

All the nuggets you’ve learned from previous episodes won’t add up to squat if you do not have the appropriate team in place. So how do you build that successful team? Today’s guest, Gary Davidson, is not only a rock star attorney, but he is the definition of a go-giver. In today’s episode you will learn how asking the question “how can I add value to person X?” can solidify your network and propel you on your journey. We will also discuss common mistakes investors make, and the questions you should be asking when picking an attorney (and some PBR history!).
