Lou Bloom’s Guide to Success

Meet Lou Bloom. He’s your typical everyday guy – except for the fact that he is the star of his own story. Lou has made a name for himself by muscling into the cut-throat, lucrative and dangerous realm of news journalism called nightcrawling. But he didn’t reach the top of the mountain by falling there. Oh no, my friends, he is a self-made success story, and he has some handy tips for you to get to the top.

KNOW WHAT YOU WANT, AND GO FOR IT
“Good things come to those who work their asses off, and people who reach the top of the mountain didn’t just fall there… If you want to win the lottery you have to make the money to buy a ticket.”

SELL YOURSELF
“Sell yourself.”

UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF TEAMWORK
“Any system that relies on cooperation – from a school of fish, or even a professional hockey team… experts have identified communication as the number one single key to success.”

BE AWARE OF YOUR LIMITATIONS
“Do you know what fear stands for? False evidence appearing real.”

LEVERAGE WHAT YOU KNOW
“You can find almost anything if you look hard enough.”

GET TO KNOW YOUR COLLEAGUES
“A friend is a gift you give yourself.”

SHOW INITIATIVE
“You need to show initiative. There is no better way to achieve job security than by making yourself an indispensable employee.”

IT ISN’T JUST ABOUT THE MONEY
“What makes a job desirable isn’t just the dollar amount attached to it… Your reward is a career.”

HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOUR
“I like to say that if you’re seeing me you’re having the worst day of your life.”

LEAD BY EXAMPLE
“I will never ask you to do anything that I wouldn’t do myself.”
