One year ago, I had my good friend, Jordan Harbinger on the show to talk about building social capital. Today, he’s back on the show to talk about calling in that social capital.
Through a series of unfortunate events with his business, he’s had to reach out to his network, connections, and friends and request help in building a new business from the ground up. Without his work in building a strong network in the past, Jordan admits he’d be in a much worse position today. In this episode, we talk about why keeping score in relationships is a bad idea, how to get over asking people for help, something Jordan calls “systematic network maintenance,” and how to call in your social capital.

Today, I have the privilege of introducing you to my friend, yet again, Jordan Harbinger. This is his third visit on the show and every single conversation with him has been packed with value and wisdom.
Jordan reached out to me a month or so ago after having left his previous business, The Art of Charm, to inform me that he was striking out on his own.
I know a lot of you are familiar with that company and probably follow it as well. You probably also know that Jordan had a falling out with the other founders and found himself needed to tap into his social capital, which he’s been building for years.
The thing that impresses me most about Jordan is that it is apparent he applies what he teaches and, as much as I wish we were having this conversation under different circumstances, in this conversation you’ll hear exactly how he’s going to crush his new business venture using the skills, tools, and strategies he’s been teaching for more than a decade in the business.

Seven. That’s the number of spots we have left for this year’s Uprising. If you aren’t familiar with what this is, now is the time to head to www.orderofman.com/uprising and learn a little more about this 3 1/2 men’s event in the mountains of Southern Utah.
This experience is going to be held on May 3rd-6th, 2018 and it is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. We’ve got firearms (from a Navy SEAL), self-defense, and survival training. We’ve got physical, mental, and emotional challenges. We’ve got food, amazing scenery, and firesides each and every night.
All of this is designed to do one thing – jar you out of the reality in which you have found yourself. The reality is that most of us are living in a position of stagnation and there’s no wonder we’re not producing the results we’re after. This experience will give you a new foundation, framework, and lens through which you view your life moving forward.
Get registered quickly. All you have to do is get to Las Vegas and we’ll take care of the rest. Again, head to www.orderofman.com/uprising. See you there.
