@LarryChiang @women2 @emilychangtv @BradStone This is actually a great idea 😛 PS @emilychangtv would love to review your book for @women2!

By Larry Chiang

I am an expert crasher. I crash parties. I crash industries. I crash business schools and law schools too in executing protocol “crasher to vip speaker”* Heck, I even crashed a gender 😉 What’s unbelievable is that I crashed a legislative body [Congress] and passed #HR627.

These things I confess not so that you will be impressed or intimidated. It’s to catalyze a visceral reaction. My goal is to cause temporary confusion so that we look at our circumstance in a new perspective… I reveal these confessed truths because low risk protocols exist to help us to infiltrate a club, get access to networks and subterfuge the walls that prohibit. Side doors, backdoors, catapulting-over-walls, Trojan horsing or parasite-ly starting up a startup using legal protocol #ExternalAPI. In short, we are being street smart doing brotocols as women. My goal will be to reduce brotocols to its very base core so that we can have an actionable article to helps us to level up!

There is no defense in the real world. There are not 11 men on an NFL defense actively trying to keep us down. This dynamic is why ex athletes do so well in technical sales. You go from experiencing active defenders to passive D or no defense at all.

I call these accelerated networking techniques, brotocols. I am already friends with women who execute brotocols better than men do. Here is what to pay attention to, more of where brotocols came from and how brotocols can benefit us in a tactile, specific, safe and step-wise, way.

What’s a brotocol. Brotocols are boy learned, man taught man-to-man protocols. Think, signature business recipes. These recipes and brotocols are for trying get party invitations**, trying to get vc money we don’t yet deserve*** or/and trying to get dates with women who are out of our league. Brotocols are the offense in the asymmetric start of relationships. Brotocols came from relationship starting upping. You may find it offensive brotocols exist…

Where did brotocols come from:

There are protocols inside “Pick Up Artist” lairs. It’s men teaching men how to PUA (pick up artist). Men have learned from other men how to talk to women even though women have zero interest. Men. Are. Pigs.

While I am not a pig, I did go get in the mud to learn these dating tips, strategies, techniques and ideas. File them under Neuro Linguistic Programming. I am not a pig. I’m a starfish, dammit. But, I went and learned from the sexually frustrated men who were and are constantly getting rejected. In an effort to rise from the rejection, they learn the practice of brotocolling.

The super majority of these brotocol skills transfer into the specific skill of HOW TO WOO A MENTOR WHO IS WAYYYYYY TO BUSY to MENTOR US****

Women can run the following brotocols better than men.

Messaging ratios.

Men from ivy schools rely and expect one to one messaging ratios. This is not how the street works. Street smart means asymmetric messaging ratios.

Run brotocol “asymmetry-in-messaging-ratios” by being okay with unrequited text messages.

Man Charm.”
Man charm is heterosexual man to heterosexual man, charm. We are trying to charm people for a verrrry valuable resource: time.

Women, run brotocol, “man charm” for a 10-15 telephone conversation with a vc. Ask for a small fund, fundraise. Or…OR if you just like to judge stuff but not execute, you can charm an LP to make YOU the vc. A Limited Partner is pretty easy to find on social media and they are dying to fund us. [{We aren’t talking about a $20,000,000 first fund but we are talking about $200k free to invest. See @naval’s feed}]

Women already know how to charm! So start charming people with compliments. There is no better compliment than a person who…

Motivational listening.

Men are horrible listeners. Half the time, men are just waiting to talk. Men who are losers will actually interrupt and argue with their potential mentor. Men will actually “neg” [negative] another alpha male in the attempt to knock them down (so that the asymmetric relationship is made more symmetric. Sound familiar?!?

We as women can listen better. Take notes. And then follow up to close for a deal. We can listen better and then close for a next step. Women can listen better and thus access a small deal under $1,000 that leads to larger checks. Here are two brotocols that are really just my mentor’s regular protocol from a 1983 book
– brotocol #InternalEscrow
– brotocol #OneWayLetterOfIntent

A brotocol is simply a signature business recipe. My protocols are organized by Hashtag because my mentor Mark McCormack does not tweet and he certainly does not write computer code.

After running brotocols…, the problem is too much success. Brotocols when run by women lead to more money and more access and more accolades. And this brings us to another issue I have already written about here are women 2.o: “Imposter Syndrome”

7 Street Smart Ways to Get a Mentor

leave a comment »

Getting a mentor is at the heart of succeeding after college. Wrangling a mentor is a major career boosting event. By wrangling, I mean to conjure up images or wrestling with a persons Gcal in order to get time, attention and energy. My wish is to boil down my curation of best mentorship and expose some counterintuitive dynamics into this listicle, “7 Street Smart Ways to Get a Mentor”.

Mentorship is such an emotionally charged topic. Some common questions I will attempt to solve
How do I get on the calendar of a person who has a super packed schedule
How do you initially meet your mentor?
What role does my non-existent social media presence play in reaching out to someone very influential?

-1- Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

We still use paper letters, paper notes, phones, emails, fax and business cards. Yes, fax! [Evvia does not use Doordash but accepts fax orders] Your potential mentor will have a preferred way to speaking with you. Let me stress that all the modes of transportation help get you to your next mentor and your next-next mentor. What I’d like to stress is that your mentor might have the preference to use old fashion smoke signals and we as mentees are going to have to hook up a facsimile machine.

For example, I met my mentor via snail mail. I wrote out a handwritten letter and put it in a #10 envelope.

For example, another mentor Ted Rhingold liked you to like his Twitter likes. And like the tweets that you would like to network with him about. So instead of setting a premeeting agenda via email, you signal an ability to search within a social media feed. You also signal your
– goals for a potential mentor
– signal your effort to search past writings your mentor has already said
– signal future direction. Q

This answers How do you initially meet your mentor? and also leads to my next point…

-2- Signaling, Execution.

Your potential mentor wants to meet rising stars. Your mentor will fit time in their schedule when you signal execution. Here is the process
– I, the potential mentee, read what you (the mentor) previously wrote.
– I took this very specific and very small action based on a change you stimulated me to take and make.
– This is my documentation via smoke signals, a medium post or Facebook Instagram story.
– This is me emailing you the documentation.
– Now, request time over the telephone for a coffee.

This answers the question of, “How do I get on the calendar of a person who has a super packed schedule”

-3- Be the mentee to a cohort mentor.

So your cohorts are a great source of peer mentorship. But because of pride, hubris or/and shyness, we do not thank our lowly cohort mentors publicly.

There are four types of mentors:
– superstar mentor
– cohort mentor
– junior mentor
– default mentor.

People overly stress a superstar mentor which I define as a brand named, industry leader. But a cohort mentor (think peer learning) is a great “hack” to prime the mentor pump. Briefly, a junior mentor is when your mentor learns from you where you’re the junior. Default mentor is a person who is near you that mentors you by default: Think family, an assigned work associate or someone in close proximity that by default fills your head with their opinion(s).

4- Be the mentee to their mentor.

You should guess at who is your potential mentor’s, mentor. They have risen to superstar mentor levels because of a mentor. Very often your potential mentor thanks and re-thanks their mentor. Thanking a mentor by mentioning them by name in a press interview is a “Mentor Mention Per Press Interview” (MMPPI). Think of running protocol #MMPPI as citing and sourcing

founders lose by making unforced errors.


Think about thanking your mentor like it’s a Venmo payment to your cohorts. You’re letting the world know you pay your friends. “Pay” your mentor by thanking your mentor.

5- Priming the mentor pump by getting a faux mentor.

Yes, fake getting a mentor by thanking a mentor. This charlattan maneuver is socially engineered to become real by going through these steps. Let me stress, you’re going from imposter to really-suitable-for-a-poster:

– Read a book.
– Apply the book’s knowledge.
– Thank the mentor.
– Rethank the mentor. Your potential mentor did mentor you via their book! Your potential mentor ALREADY did mentor you via their Medium (it’s like a WORDPRESS blog post but with less functionality)
For example, my potential mentor already did mentor me via a very specific CS183b Lec 5 video. Peter Thiel is speaking in lecture 5; CS 183b “competition is for losers” and that video is free on YouTube.

(6) Loyalty and Thankfulness
