Holiday Parties are nearly impossible to avoid this time of year. Between all the invites you receive and the parties that happen at your Bases of Operations, you will find yourself at least a few Holiday Parties the Month of December. Some of these are actually not all that bad. Occasionally, you will actually find yourself at one of these Holiday Parties where the people running the gig actually know what time it is. You know, the kind of gig where everyone is dressed fly and there are way more girls than guys. These are the type of Holiday Parties you want to find yourself at…….
Often times, many G’s get really caught up with closing every night they go out. Of course, closing every night is never a bad move. However, during holiday season, many girls are out with their boyfriends, it’s just they way it works. So, always going for the “kill” can sometimes be less effective this time of year. To offset this reality, it is sometimes better to go “Number Crunching” especially when you are at the kind of Holiday Party that is set up the right way……
Number Crunching isn’t what your accountant does for you so you don’t have to pay taxes like regular guys do. Number Crunching is focusing your efforts on building your Pipeline, Networking, and expanding your influence. This is a great time of the year to do this. I have actually conducted an unofficial study that shows many girls break up with their boyfriends after the Holiday Season. Maybe its holiday stress, maybe it’s the weather, and maybe it’s all the family time. Personally, I don’t really care what causes relationships to crumble, all I know is there are a lot more relationships on the rocks after the Holidays. I like to think of it as the world being on thin ice, and I know I am going to under it when it breaks…..
When you find yourself at one of these High-End Holiday Parties, be prepared. Refer to your “Checklist for a Night out”. Especially make sure you have a working pen. And dress sharp (A 3 Button Versace suit with notched lapels, Pink Canali shirt, Blue and Pink Zegna tie, Blue Brioni Pocket square and Crocodile loafers by A. Testoni, always works well. And the whole ensemble will only set you back about $3700.00….)
When most G’s Number Crunch, they will usually just enter girls phone #’s in there cell phone. There is really nothing wrong with this move. The drawbacks are: its very high profile, not that fast, and you always have the potential for technological glitches. I personally like to let a girl tell me her number and I remember it (then write it down later after I excuse myself). It’s an old-school move. Also, Girls get really impressed that you were able to “remember” there phone number. Girls think that if you remember their phone number, it has more “meaning” or something. Which, in actuality, it does have a lot of “meaning”; every fly girl’s number has “meaning”. Also, this is a good method for “quick strikes” like when a boyfriend is making his way thru the crowd to get back to his girl (little does he know, not his girl for long)………..
Another G I know (who does a lot of import/ exports out of Amsterdam), likes to talk to girl and while he is explaining something he draws out what he is talking about (like directions to an after-hours club, or the layout of his favorite fusion bar) on a napkin with a pen. He usually gets her involved interactively with the directions with handing her the pen and getting her to write also. At this point, a girl has a pen in her hand and a napkin. Number Crunching at this point couldn’t be easier. I have seen this G do this many times, it kind of has a “under the ether” effect to it….
Another west coast based G that I know has a relatively innovative technique. He will get a girls phone under some guise like “I used to have the same phone, can I see it for minute?” Once he gets the phone, he dials his own number and like that, he has Number Crunched. Never tried It myself, but nonetheless, a forward thinking approach…
My favorite is when a girl distracts her boyfriend with a kiss, and then slips a piece of paper with her number written on it in the pocket of your Versace suit. Female G move. It is also decent when a girl does the same move with a hotel room # written on it. Any variation of the move is good. For the record, this happened to me three times last night.
The main point of this is to use these High-End Holiday Nights for Number Crunching, not always closing. This will really help build your Pipe for the New Year. Me? I close on nights even when I am Number Crunching……do me a favor…..The Rest is Up to You…..
Due to Massive influx of emails asking me to write about certain topics, people asking me “how do I launder money?”, “how can I get back at my boyfriend?”, “do you know anyone who will buy stolen paintings?” etc. I have the answers to all these questions and more, keep reading. It just might take me a little while to respond to your emails.
Email of the week in regards to The G Manifesto Tip: Checklist for a Night Out:
“I once donned the striped shirt and faded jeans that got me nothing at the end of the night but two greasy NYC imitation slices of pizza at Ciro’s, little did I know it takes a Batman utility belt to pull the wool, so to speak. I cannot thank you enough Mr. Mason, for taking the time to help a “Baby G” become a man. Your talent and ambition is unprecedented, you are a modern day Santa Claus without the beard and fury red suit bringing lots of “toys, tips and models” in his Benz!
PS: I saw an impeccably dressed man disappear the other night at a high end club downtown, I thought it might be you so I tried to catch him but it was like “poof” he disappeared into thin air. Was that you Mr. Mason???”
–Maybe it was me………..—MPM
“Like a glass of single malt Aberlour 35 the advice on meticulous planning hit hard and finished smooth. I had a similar conversation with a friend of mine in New Yorks Little Italy. He is known as one of the foremost experts in Jewelry eradication. Like myself he is a big fan of the G Manifesto and a close friend to Michael Porfirio Mason. He directly relates his success to the exact principles outlined by the peoples champ. Bravo!”
