The Best Way to Meet Famous People


I love meeting famous people and always get a kick out of shaking hands with folks who are the top in their field.

Having been in the music business in my 20s, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many famous musicians, including Mike Love of the Beach Boys, Rick Springfield, Corey Hart, the boys from UB40 and our own Bob Seger.

I’ve met celebrities such as Ben Vereen, George Herbert Walker Bush, John McCain and Abigail (Dear Abby) VanBuren.

As a speaker and author, I’ve met tons of people famous people in my line of work, including, Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Stephen Covey and Mark Victor (Chicken Soup for the Soul) Hansen.

Many of these meetings were photographed and the pictures are displayed at

After much experience, I’ve discovered a secret to meeting celebrities. By far the best way to meet celebs is before they become famous.
