Keith Ferrazzi is recognized as the global thought-leader in authentic networking and his two New York Times bestsellers, Never Eat Alone and Who’s Got Your Back? are widely regarded as the ‘business bibles’ of networking and building positive business relationships.
But his lifetime of professional accomplishments and his reputation for being one of the most connected people in business today is far removed from the poverty of his youth.
Life in Pittsburgh during the devastating decline of the steel industry was a daily struggle for survival. His father, a former steel worker, took on multiple odd jobs. His mother was a cleaning lady. And at just 11-years-old, Keith worked as a golf caddy for a mere $20 a day.
But this experience was Keith’s turning point. It exposed him to the world of the successful and the wealthy. He observed how they conducted themselves with one another, and as it turned out, golf was more than just a pastime or hobby. It was a means to connect. To do business. To introduce others to new opportunities.
Even at such a young age, Keith had this one profound awakening: “What would it take to get these rich, successful people to help me too?” His unshakable work ethic and his willingness to forge deep relationships with the country club’s patrons, opened new opportunities for Keith. Most notably, a chance to earn a coveted spot at the prestigious Yale University – and a ticket out of poverty.
