Lewis HowesOften times the concept of “overnight success” is challenged (heck, I challenge it all the time). But, it would be hard to argue against the crazy speed, and the pure velocity, that has taken Lewis Howes from an injured professional athlete to living on his sister’s couch to a well-known social media industry leader now with a booming business.

Looking at Lewis now, it is hard to believe that this has all happened in about two years. Describing Lewis is pretty hard because he has done and does so many things, including:

In this tell-all interview, I wanted to know (for all of us) how he did it, what he learned, and what we can learn from him. Including:

  • How he got started. What were his first moves?
  • What he learned about self-publishing a book.
  • How he manages so many different projects.
  • How he has managed to market and promote himself by helping others.
  • His keys to networking and building better business relationships.
  • His overall strategy for “his brand” (is there one?).
  • …and much more.

As always, would love to hear your thoughts, takeaways, and lessons learned. Leave ’em below in the comments section.

    Just saw this! Was just going to watch a couple minutes of me – but it was so intriguing and content rich that I couldn’t stop watching! Thanks for putting this together, David. Really good stuff.

    A couple thoughts, should be interesting to see a new shift in connection points now with Google+…how this can be leveraged just like Lewis leveraged his expertise in LinkedIn.

    Also, I have definitely seen a rise in face-to-face meetings. Connecting online is great, moving forward with a “discovery phase” of sorts and then solidifying the relationship over coffee/tea, lunch, or just a good chat is still consistently the best way I’ve seen to grow my business.

      Tim – Good timing as Lewis is coming back on the show VERY soon. 🙂

        Outstanding timing indeed! I’ve got you plugged into my Google Reader now – can’t wait! If you’re ever travelling down south through Tulsa, USA – look me up! Would love to grab a cup a joe with you.
