A friend of mine just left the Real Estate Business because her business wasn't producing the income she had expected. She wasn't getting referrals.
It got me thinking about what it takes to leverage connections. So I started a few new lists. (Mom taught us that when we write things down, good things happen.)
List of friends: Who do I know who likes me and wants me to succeed?
List of business partners: Who do I refer business to when a customer asks "Who do you know that ____________?"
List of past customers with whom I've lost contact: Who have I forgotten, and what are they doing now?
Jill Lublin, author or Get Noticed... Get Referrals, says: "Think of your clients, customers, referral sources, vendors, and suppliers as your partners and friends as people who want to help you. Never forget that they're people, not just business statistics, and that you cannot succeed without them."
Good thought. Blessings on you and your business today!
