Never Eat Alone (2005)

  • You can't get there alone. In fact, you can't get very far at all.
  • People who instinctively establish a strong network of relationships have always created great businesses.
  • At every stage of my career, I sought out the most influential people around me and asked for their help and guidance.
  • [Connecting is] a constant process of giving and receiving -- of asking for and receiving help.
  • Our careers aren't paths so much as landscapes that are navigated. We're free agents, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs -- each with our own unique brand.
    • pg. 17
