A Shout-Out To Ed

My friend, @Ed (Ed Shahzade), did me a very big solid favor for me the other day. I asked him if he’d connect me with his friend and Twitter contact, Tony Robbins. Yes, THAT Tony Robbins. Ed said, “Absolutely! No problem.” 10 minutes later, I was emailing.

Now, what Tony and I are doing together isn’t the point of right now. This post, in its entirety, is about Ed. Watch this, Ed:

    My boy Ed is THE man! Super humble and will out give ANYONE!

    Great video Chris. Awesome story & awesome connection.

    Two things:

    #1: I can definitely attest to @ed being the man. He is like a magical fairy (I mean that in a good way) who just randomly appears sometimes and does all kinds of good. It is ridiculous.

    #2: The awkward pause at the end of the video is classic. Epic.

    This really doesn't surprise me at all. Ed has always been a shining light on Twitter, and someone I'm proud to call a friend. :-)

    I left it in for that. (the awkward end). He was such a pro camera guy (our shooter), and I was in the middle of praising him for that…. HE assumed I'd edit that. Me? No way.

    I know, I loved it.

    I always tell people at the end of videos during interviews: “When we are done, just awkwardly pause for a second after the final words.”

    It is the best.

    Ed is truly one of the greatest “I have never met in person” friends I have on Twitter. He has been so supportive of me and my efforts over the last 6 months or so. I can't wait to meet him in person.

    Of course seeing you get to meet Tony Robbins is pretty kick ass too. You have been a great friend as well Chris and to see you connecting with Tony, who has had such an enormously positive impact on me and my life, it's almost too cool for words. Rock on!

    And Chris did me “a big solid favor.”

    I had an “ethical” question and asked Chris for his take. He had “no frame of reference” but immediately put me in touch with his top guy on such matters who is helping me.

    Thanks (again) Chris!

    Subscribe to your newsletter and love learning about effective trust agents (yes, I bought the book). So I immediately followed Ed based on this post. But I politely asked him about a political post he wrote – maybe that’s not a good idea with some – and he about jumped down my throat, throwing every right-wing boogey-man at me, because I didn’t agree with him. I was really surprised, as he seemed professional when tweeting about social media (enjoyed most of his posts), but decided I didn’t care to follow him after this experience.

    Still love your stuff (I don’t follow you on Twitter, as your stuff gets lost in my feed; I prefer the newsletter.) Keep up the great work, and the recommendation on other trust agents to follow.
