Keith Ferrazzi, author of Never Eat Alone and Who’s Got Your Back received his first lesson on social networking when he was just 13.  As a caddie at a local golf course, he earned the title of being the best first year caddie, and eventually caddied for Arnold Palmer,  Coming from a poor family he might have been intimidated by the type of customer with memberships at the club.  Each day he arrived 30 minutes early.  Before anyone else was there Ferrazzi would check the pin placement of the holes and observe how the grass had been cut.  All in an effort to give those he caddied for every advantage possible.  He met a woman, Mrs. Poland, who possibly was the best golfer at the club.  She quickly made Keith her caddie.
