6 Degrees + 5 People

Entrepreneur and author, Jim Rohn, once famously stated that ‘you are the average product of the 5 people you spend the most time with’. I believe there is truth to the law of averages and how your environment influences your surroundings. However, I want to introduce an addendum; while we are the average of several multiples around us, we are also the product of what lies beyond those multiples. The connection those multiples make with others and how we invariably become a network by 6 degrees of separation is where our connection and influence exists.

Artists grow not just by surrounding themselves with great people, but by knowing who surrounded those people.
