Hacking Loyalty as a Method to Extract Free Shareholder Equity

by Larry Chiang on November 26, 2013

By Larry Chiang 
Loyalty early in an engineering career accelerates you
This is how I leapfrogged all the people behind me to
— be alpha executive in my industry 
— be alpha in an industry I hobby in
— be alpha at a school I could not attend / be admitted to
The below points, I boxed up as an early Christ-Mass gift. You’re welcome. They’re appx 80% of how I “hacked loyalty”

Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
-1- Recognizing and gmail alerting your mentor in WORDPRESS #HackingLoyalty #mmpWP #MMPPI

WordPress is THE networking tool. Writing a book to honor a mentor (WHICH I DID) is onerous. Remember, WTDTYASBS paid homage to my mentors book, WTDTYAHBS via a GigaOm blog post. 

Lets hope heaven has Mr Mark McCormack’s gmail alerts set up for him!
Download the video on ENGR 145 to see the mentors I am loyal to…

-2- Priming mentor mentee pump w #MMPPI (#mmpQQ#HackingLoyalty

A pump gets primed
Many non engineers do not get pump priming so insert time-wasting pump story <here>
So be like the kid in the story and prime your mentee mentor pump by doing point number one and wordpress documenting how your mentor has helped you already
Most mentors time gets wasted

-3- Public mentor thank you’s #HackingLoyalty

For some reason, you have to be bold and self-assured to say thank you

I attribute my boldness to my Napoleon complex at 5’5″

-4- Networking w/celebs + alphas

It’s so easy!! Read “How to Work a Room”
My only add is to promote what they’re promoting.

-5- My career defies gravity: why??
It’s cuz I’m loyal. See Chris Peacock on CNN Money in my YouTube

Very interesting info. Perfect, just what I was searching for!

I am curious to find out what blog system you’re using? I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latest site and I’d like to find something more safe.
