For me, this was a good read because it taught me a lot about how to build a healthy relationship.

Also, even if you have read books on communication or even about relationships then still, give read to Never Eat Alone because you will learn a lot about how you can apply the same in your life.

That being said, let me give you 3 powerful takeaways from Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi.

Never Go Solo

You may have heard that after you reach a certain level “build a proper team and work with them because you can’t reach a higher level by yourself”

So save some time and build a team of people who can work with you rather than work for you.

  1. If people work for you then they’re doing it for money and they won’t care much about your vision or the company you’re running.
  2. Rather work with people, this way, they will feel like they’re part of your business and they will give their 100% to whatever work they’re doing. They will also know what is an end goal and they will treat your dream as their dream.

So make a team that you trust and feel confident about. Also remember, you can go solo and build a profitable business but you won’t be able to build a business beyond a certain level. 

Building a Powerful Team for Life

Even if you find a team of people who can lead and if you don’t spend time with them then after a few years, that team will fall apart and you will again need to find a team.

So what Keith said is, be with the team whenever you can.

You can have breakfast with them, go for a launch, even dinner, and spend time with them whenever possible.

The important keyword is to spend quality time rather than just spending time.

Make sure your team feels that you’re their Friend rather than a boss who just wants them to work 24/7 no matter what happens.

So build a healthy environment.

Find a Mentor that Can Lead You in Right Direction

If you’re just starting out your business and if you want help then there is no better way than finding a mentor who can help you with anything.

Now, no one will help you with anything until you give something in return.

For example, I’m a writer and if I want help then what I can do is, 

I will search for the best writer who lives in India and I will find what they’re doing wrong and how I can help them.

Now, finding mistakes about the best writer won’t be easy but it’s not impossible because we all are human and everyone makes mistakes.

So I will find mistakes and I will try to reach out to them. Again, this too won’t be easy but these days, we have social media and you can reach out to anyone you want.

You just need to find a way.

The end story is if you help people with their work then you will also get something in return.

Now, the keyword here is, never expect anything in return, if you help people, and if they don’t then let it go.

Because in the process of solving problems, you have learned a lot.
