Notes from Stu Draper's Power to Become Speech

    "In 2007, a BYU – Idaho student wanted to learn internet marketing. There was one class available to him – a course that offered one credit, lasted one month, and focused on how to use Google ads.
     The student, Stuart Draper, didn’t let a lack of coursework deter him from his goal. He bought books, attended seminars, and learned the skills he needed by way of independent study – and he did that while continuing to pursue and complete a bachelor’s degree in traditional marketing."

     Stu Draper was the next speaker, and the following notes were the live tweeting on the Mormon YSA Blog Spot's Twitter page.
     A BIG FAT LIE: Success is about who you know, not what you know. Use @LinkedIn The connections can get you places, if you have skill. You can make up for not being outgoing with skill. The networkers will find you. Rich people can't help you; unless, you have skills. Our networks can change our lives in unforseen ways. Let your network grow and change you positively.  Learn the principle of networking with the right people.  Show me your friends, and I'll show you your future. We are the average of the five people that we spend the most time with. (the twist) or aspire to be, follow, read, and so forth. Smart cuts: Progress in your career faster than you can dream with the skills and networks that you develop in school.
