Initial Contributions: Ben Dyer

Over the last week, many experienced entrepreneurs and leaders have shared their wisdom on Naturally Caffeinated:the Community Edition. One in particular that stuck out was Ben Dyer’s contribution on the “Everything Communicates” thread.

He advocated a slight twist on what Steve says in the Ebook. Instead of the original message in the Ebook, the cliché of “it’s not what you know, but who”, Mr. Dyer turns it around to be “It’s not who you know, but who knows you”.

This fresh turn on a cliché makes you think. He says to be aware of even the small mundane activities you do and how they are perceived by those around you. As an entrepreneur, you never know who might be your next investor.

Ben Dyer is the Entrepreneur-In-Residence at the Cockrell School of Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. You can read his full bio here on his blog, TechDrawl.

We welcome other shared wisdom and advice on Naturally Caffeinated: the Community Edition.
