Excerpt from Forbes Article “I Stalked Steve Jobs (And How To Get A Meeting With ANY VIP)”

3 Steps To Get A Meeting With Any VIP:

1) Find out what causes they care about. Write a ½ to 1 page genuine letter about their specific accomplishments you admire. Offer five hours donation of your time to their favorite non-profit for five minutes of their time (request a meeting in person versus via phone).

2) Send your letter via FedEx. Call to ensure it was received and bond with their Executive Assistant. Only call first thing in AM or last thing in PM. They’re more likely to answer then.

3) Repeat step 2 until you get a meeting. If for some reason this doesn’t work, give the letter to them by hand at an event they are speaking at. Then repeat step 2 until you get a meeting.

Making call after call? Sending letter after letter?

There’s a better way!

Even visionary Steve Jobs had mentors. On 60-Minutes Overtime, Walter Isaacson (Jobs’ Biographer) touches briefly on Silicon Valley mentors and the importance to Steve Jobs’ life. So, much that he met with Larry Page (a rival) to give him some advice later on in his career.
