Drew started out unconfident with women and worked his way up to becoming a successful club promoter and now a general manager of a popular bar in New York City. Listen to him share his story and the lessons he picked up along the way.
No one knows Drew’s last name but he does a bunch of cool shit, and hangs out with a lot of girls/celebrities, so they call him Drew Gatsby. Back in high school, when he was struggling socially, he decided “I just don’t want to be that guy anymore”. He started throwing parties at his house and that’s when he realized that people saw him as the guy in charge. People looked to him when there’s a problem. It helped build up his confidence.
He says when doing this stuff just be an NFL quarterback, if something goes wrong, just forget about the last snap. Everyone has their own game, their own style. Drew’s style is talking to girls, instead of directly hitting on them. Most guys just try to hit on girls immediately and he brings something different to the table. He likes to offer a girl a shot and if she says no, he drinks it in front of her to show he doesn’t give a fuck.
When it comes to promoting, just act like you belong there. Build as many relationships as you can and leverage them as much as possible. Even though he’s not in the industry anymore, he pops in every couple weeks to stay relevant. “It’s not about the money you make, it’s about the hands you shake.”
