In the last seven years, I have successfully made four start-up businesses and created over 300 podcasts. Fortunately, my team has been lucky enough to grow, which is possible because of my people skills. The most important skill in today\’s day and age is people skills. With the rise of short-form content, the attention span of people has reduced, and holding their attention while you talk has become difficult. Here are a few steps that you can follow to improve your skill and stand out among people.
- Talk to everyone with equal respect.
- Power of exclusivity.
- Keep your energy exclusive.
- The more you talk to people the more you are drained of energy.
- It is good to know more people in college, but after college, you need to focus on talking to fewer people and having worthy conversations.
- Drive a conversation.
- Listen to podcasts to gain knowledge.
- Keep asking questions but don’t make it seem like an interview.
- Sense of humor

Trick 1- Repeat their names after a few sentences
