When people ask me why I’m having lunch with 500 strangers in five years, I list a few reasons – one of them being to attract more opportunity into my life.

During the two-plus years I’ve been on this journey, I’ve been asked to share my story at a maximum security prison, at a conference, on radio and in podcasts. I said yes to all those invitations, because I regarded all of them as opportunities, as they gave me a chance to:

  • Enjoy new experiences
  • Improve my communication skills
  • Build my personal brand

So when New Zealand TV breakfast show AM asked if I wanted to appear on the program to discuss my 500 lunches, I hungrily accepted.
