Most people lock up when starting a conversation with someone they look up to or someone they consider successful, influential or a celebrity. Of course, it’s all relative to your definition and that’s what’s most important here.
Working in the seminar industry for years, I met several people that can easily be defined as celebrities. I promise you, they are as human as you and me regardless of the status we place on them.
Likewise, many friends have asked me “How do I talk to a celebrity?” or something like “How do you approach someone you admire?

I want to be clear about one thing….
Connecting to a successful person and networking with successful people is part of
learning to become a masterful networker. It has NOTHING to do with being fake, inauthentic or just plain douchey. You CAN connect without compromising who you are.
