Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas. — Paul Samuelson. Hey guys, recently I’ve been dabbling on a pitch deck creation. To create a better pitch deck that will captivate investors and clients alike. Upon reading multiple pitch decks that have been submitted to YCombinator 1 , I’ve concluded that there is a certain pitch deck structure and characteristics needed. For me, I think a pitch deck must contain only the core of what you’re trying to do or achieve. I mean, just keep it short and simple which even a 5 year old could understand. Don’t put any jargon and highlight the important parts like graphs and figures. Anyways, let’s dive on some pitch decks used and created by well known companies in this day and age.

Ten Techniques to Build Rapport

We can all fight against loneliness by engaging in random acts of kindness.
— Gail Honeyman.

Hello guys, in life no one lives alone, and no one can live alone. In this TIL (Today I Learned) we will discuss the things I’ve learned when trying to socialize with other people building rapport and connections.

  1. Establish artificial time constraints. Allow the potential source to feel that there is an end in sight.

  2. Remember non-verbals. Ensure that both your body language and voice are nonthreatening.

  3. Speak slower. Do not oversell and talk too fast. You lose credibility quickly and appear too strong and threatening.

  4. Have a sympathy or assistance theme. Human beings want to provide assistance and help. It also appeals to their ego that they may know more than you.

  5. Suspend your ego. This probably represents the hardest technique but, without a doubt, is the most effective. Do not build yourself up—build someone else up, and you will have strong rapport.

  6. Validate others. Human beings crave feeling connected and accepted. Validation feeds this need, and few offer it. Be the great validator and have instant, valuable rapport.

  7. Ask “how, when, and why” questions. When you want to dig deep and make a connection, asking these questions serves as the safest, most effective way. People will tell you what they are willing to talk about.

  8. Connect using quid pro quo. Some people are more guarded than others. Allow them to feel comfortable by sharing a little about yourself if needed. Do not overdo it.

  9. Give gifts (reciprocal altruism). Human beings reciprocate gifts given. Give a gift, either intangible or material, and seek a conversation and rapport in return.

  10. Manage expectations. Avoid feeling and embodying disappointment by ensuring that your methods focus on benefiting the targeted individual, not you. Ultimately, you will win, but your mind-set needs to focus on the other person.

Humans will be humans and humans are very dependent creature. That’s all for it thanks for reading. Follow me on my social media accounts and also on my podcasts.
