My Entrepreneur Tip is to Make a “Random Friend”

by Larry Chiang on June 14, 2012

Do well in ENGR 145 this summer by practicing the art of collecting random friends

By Larry Chiang

Random friends.

How many do you have that are what you would categorize as random? As engineering undergrads, it’s incredibly beneficial.

I’m not going to sell you on doing this.

I will give a few ideas on where and how to get a few random friends.

– Make friends with the staff

It starts with asking their name.

– Make friends with a random old person

As an entrepreneur and pre-entrepreneur, it’s super easy.

I am not a conscious competent when it comes to this skill because I’m very unconscious about it. Sorry I’ve only a couple ideas… Wanna brainstorm more with me?! Add them in the comments below
