the art of charm podcast6 years ago when I got into this whole develop your social skills thing I found a website that had a profound impact on my life, The Art of Charm, founded by Jordan Harbinger.

Regularly I would tune in to their podcast and implement the advice into my own direct experiences. (The other resource I used a lot was Andrew Warner’s Mixergy.)

Fast forward to a few months ago. I’m in San Francisco visiting friends and I reach out to Andrew Warner. He invites me to a scotch night he’s hosting for a few friends. I show up not knowing what to expect and you’ll never guess who’s there: Jordan Harbinger. A few weeks later we’ve had a few conversations and he invites me to be a guest on the podcast. How cool is that?
