In this video Patrick Bet-David breaks down the two fastest ways to become successful and the qualities he looks for in an inner circle.
- Confidentiality: What’s said in the inner circle stays in the inner circle. You should be able to have trust in the people you allow on your team. Without trust, you won’t be able to keep them in on the loop of everything that’s happening, which stifles communication overall.
- ZERO Tolerance For Games: You can’t play games in business let alone within your own team. Manipulation of any kind leads to loss of trust amongst your inner circle. Trust is the foundation of any inner circle so you can’t fool around with it.
- Accessible: You always want to be reliable and accessible to your inner circle. It’s the nucleus of communication. If you’re busy and there’s a call, at least respond quick enough to find out what’s going on. If it’s an emergency, find a way to handle the situation and, if not, at least let your circle know you’re aware of the issue.
- Opportunity Magnet: First thing’s first, don’t be a crap magnet. The opposite of an opportunity magnet tends to attract problems and issues that will make them look like the victim and inevitably bring your team down. An opportunity magnet attracts new ways of problem solving, fresh sources that will help, and overall success for the team. This person will always bring in new people to meet, new deals to make and plenty more.
- Someone Who Gives Insight: It’s always amazing to have a person on the team that’s an expert in your field. This person will steer the team in the right directions and influence business decisions with thorough research. He or she will also be able to teach the rest of the team things they probably didn’t understand or realize about their field. They are constantly bringing value to the table.
- Pays Attention to Detail: This person always adds their personal touch to any task they’re working on. If he or she knows a client loves a certain type of food or a particular atmosphere, then he or she will make sure to include it. They’re attentive to everything down to the way a client prefers to sit in a chair. This person will respect the areas in which details matter.
- Strong Rolodex With Trust and Credibility: While your main team players are vital to growing your business, it’s also beneficial to have a reliable list of contacts that can help with any special needs. At the end of the day, it’s all about who you know. If you know some great people in high places, the best thing you can do is reach out to see if they can assist you.
- Respect In Their Approach: If you need to give feedback to the leader of the circle or anyone else on the team, then you should know how to do it. You can’t make it uncomfortable. You have to have mutual respect when you’re communicating with each other.
- What’s Said About You Behind Your Back: The best type of people you want in your inner circle are those who will defend your honor and credibility especially when you’re not in the room. If they want to protect you and your relationship, then you’ll want to keep them around. It goes back to playing games. You don’t want anyone joking around about your reputation, and neither does your inner circle.
- Not Cheap When We Are Going Out: When you’re the breadwinner, there are some people out there that will think you foot the bill for everything. Those who belong in your inner circle don’t think that way. Whenever Michael Jordan would go out, his friends would expect him to pay for everything, except Charles Barkely, who didn’t anticipate a dime out of the legendary NBA player. Your inner circle should want to pay their own way instead of leaning on you to cover them.
- Dependability: You should be able to bank on the word of people within your inner circle. It goes back to trust; trust their word and you’ll go far. If you can’t depend on the people in your inner circle, then they shouldn’t be there.
- Exchange Of Value: Nobody in an inner circle stays too long if they don’t bring an individual amount of value to the team. No one person’s contributions should be one-sided. Value doesn’t necessarily mean money; it could be service, protection, and other aspects of sustainability that the team needs to survive.
- Fun & Humble: Everyone on your team should have attractive personalities and zero tolerance for arrogance. There’s nothing like making money with a group of like-minded people who you can have fun with. When everyone on your team shares the same exact goals, the group wants to continue to win together.
- Presentable in Appearance: If you go into a place where you’re expected to look presentable, then you have to look like a million dollars. If you’ve got that one person who doesn’t live up to that expectation, the moral of the team goes down. It’s not just the way you’re dressed either. It’s the way you carry yourself, the way you speak and how you treat others outside of the inner circle.
- Extra Factor: Going above and beyond to get the job done is admirable no matter what. The results of that kind of work ethic translate into an unbreakable bond. Patrick cites a guy named Danny in L.A. that he’s built so much respect and trust for over the years simply because he always hooks him up with the best cars from the second he lands at LAX. These are the types of people you want to brag about and uplift. They’re the type of people you want in your inner circle.
