“Famous authors or other celebrities in your industry started out as people.”
You know, it is easy to lose sight of that. I am repeatedly amazed at the response I get from most CEOs, authors and other people who frequently appear in the news. By and large most of them are approachable and down to earth.
Be bold. Pitch the rich and famous. I promise that being rejected by them is no different than being rejected by anyone else – but in the case of the famous, at least you’ll have a good story to tell your friends.
