Mke Kim ·  Finding Passion in Marketing From Art and Culture

“Partner up, collaborate across, mentor around. Those are the three ways that you build relationships in this industry. So partner up is I need that person. They can do for me, something I can not do for myself. That's a very different relationship than collaborate across, and then those who are just around you just mentor those folks. So when I go to a partner up or a collaborate across, all I'm really trying to do is be the jelly to their peanut butter and if I can't figure out how to do that, I'm going to expect, they're going to say no. So someone comes to you, Bryan, and they want to partner up because you've earned some influence. They bring better bring some jelly to the peanut butter. ”
