What is a genius network and how can building one help you discover your OWN inner genius?

You’ve probably heard me say who you spend time with is who you become. That’s because your brain power doesn’t rely solely on your neurological networks, it’s influenced and shaped by your social network. Who you surround yourself with can have a direct impact on your capabilities and success.

I’m excited to go deeper into this topic with our guest today, Joe Polish. Joe is the founder of Genius Network, one of the highest-level groups for entrepreneurs in the world. He’s host of multiple top-ranked podcasts, and author of several books, including his latest, What’s in It for Them?: 9 Genius Networking Principles to Get What You Want by Helping Others Get What They Want.

When you connect people and ideas, you can change lives. But you don’t want to build just any network of people—you want a genius network. Listen in, as Joe goes into detail on why he created his Genius Network, what it involves, and gives you strategies and action steps for building your own genius network today.
