356 - Steve Cohen: The Tao of Steve Cohen, A Shortcut to Wisdom

I hired Steve Cohen. He produces this podcast. And I wanted him to be on the show because he has a mutant superpower. All my guests do. But his superpower really blows me away. I can barely understand how it comes so natural to him. But it does. Steve is a friend to thousands and thousands of people. He knows everyone and their mom, their manager, their business. He’s built up genuine goodwill with so many people. And I look at that as a superpower because it’s not your typical “networking.” It’s more than that. It’s networking with meaning. Or as Steve says, “it’s friendship.” I wanted to interview Steve about how he got this talent. And he kept me laughing the whole way through. Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing: Steve Cohen!
