People That I Would Love To Work With

Were All Living In Our Own Realities - Tyler Bryden

This is is part of my live-learning series! I will be updating this post as I continue through my journey. I apologize for any grammatical errors or incoherent thoughts. This is a practice to help me share things that are valuable without falling apart from the pressure of perfection. 

First of all, I’m very lucky to work with an amazing group of people already.




Individual people. Not companies, organizations, groups etc. If I like a whole group, I will split them into individual people.

I am putting intent into a diverse group of people who I admire. I do not want to see all Tim Ferris like people on this list 😂. 

Definition of “Work”

This is something am still working on. Work is such a catch-all term. Generally, the goal is to connect and have a working relationship with someone that benefits both of us and enables us to both generate some level of sustainability and growth in our lives.


Actually generate the list of people. I’m doing this as I go and it will be fascinating and revealing who I add to this.

Formulate somewhat of a plan. Okay, if I now know this is a person I want to work with, what can I do to make that happen? Already some interesting things here. For example, some of the music artists below. There would have to be a good reason people as popular as them would want to work with me. It must be valuable for them. Most likely in a lopsided way. So, either I need to present them with some amazing music and a following that is worthwhile tapping into. At the very least a vibe that they feel. Or, I need to create a compelling business case or an unforgettable experience. I’ll come back to this. 


I will be adding links to each person over time. This could be links to their website, their social media, my favourite posts, or content, or media, the best way to reach them and more. 

These links will generate contextual connections to the people. Already, for organizations, I’ve seen myself ranking in the top 10 of Google. This can compound. This might make them aware of me. It should build up some domain authority for me. And, it will be a valuable resource for myself and others.

Establish Why

Why do I want to work with this person? What draws me to them. What is valuable for me? What is valuable for you as a reader.

Help others create their own “people I would love to work with” list

Eric Janssen from Richard Ivey Business School and Intellitex showed me the “Dream 100”, which is the 100 dream customers you could have. That really stuck with me. There is so much good that can come from an activity like that. The first time I did it, there was a newfound focus. I didn’t execute the way I wanted to necessarily but its a list I can revisit. Some of that has found its way in here. 

Organize Data Well

This will be a lot of information. The page could load slow. It could be unruly. It could be hard to find people. Do I do it in alphabetical order? Is there ways I could let people sort?

Avoid Duplicates

This will be hard to do. How do I best categorize people? Do I need sub-categories? If so, how do I display this information?

Data Maintenance

How do I detect when links break?


This is a creepy post and thing to do 😂 I don’t know. How can you manifest things? This seems like a good way to do it. I really do love all these people.

Someone on this list is divisive. I can already see for example Jeff Bezos is on the list here who is wildly controversial for his impact to the world. How do I reconcile that? This is good self-reflection and something I need to address.

Someone does something bad I didn’t know about when I added them to the list. 


Because I am stream of consciousness typing people on a first pass as I add them, I may spell names or categorize them wrong. This could be misrepresentative and hurt someone’s feelings or success (in some way I know that’s a stretch lol). 

Investment of Time

This could be a massive task that takes months or years. 

Information For Each Person

Need to have

At least one link.

An image. 

At least one social media link to follow. Preferably Twitter, LinkedIn, Spotify, Instagram.

One website link. To Wikipedia at the minimum. To their site, if they have one.  

Nice to have
