Tim Ferriss — How To Build A World-Class Network

The Nishant Garg Show

Don’t dismiss people, don’t be a dick, and don’t rush. Play the long game.

– Tim Ferriss

This post highlights some of the podcasts by Tim Ferriss I’ve listened to several times which I enjoyed immensely and helped me a lot in my podcasting, how to connect with people, how to network with people, how to build deep relationships, and much more. If these resources help you in some ways, I’d love to hear about your experiences. Some episodes go deeper into depression, books, and other resources.

Tim Ferriss has been listed as one of Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Business People” and one of Fortune’s “40 under 40.” He is an early-stage technology investor/advisor (Uber, Facebook, Shopify, Duolingo, Alibaba, and 50+ others) and the author of five #1 New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellers, including The 4-Hour Workweek and Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers. The Observer and other media have called Tim “the Oprah of audio” due to the influence of The Tim Ferriss Show podcast, which is the first business/interview podcast to exceed 100 million downloads. It has now exceeded 600 million downloads.

Please be sure to see the important disclaimer at the bottom of this post. Now, please enjoy!
