Fools rush in....are you ready to connect?
By Jean MacDonald
How many events have you attended in the last few months hoping to find the right connection, referral or power partner only to get sidetracked with breakfast, lunch or a cocktail? The business cards feverishly being handed out and sales pitches are the same old tiring messages.
Let me ask you what you have done to change this picture? Who have you brought to the party to help them and others? What message are you delivering?
Is it boring, no punch or left us fooled again. Maybe it is time to make a change!
Networking is no joke. Making a great impression, having a great message, building the right connections and the ability to understand how to access top leaders is the edge to outsmarting your competition and running a great business.
Let me ask you a few relationship building questions:
Do you maintain relationships with those in your network? Do you reach out to them quarterly to keep yourself in their mind? What about all the business cards you pick up? How many of those have you contacted for coffee? Don't be fooled by going to events and thinking the phone will ring. These cards and the relationships are the lifelines to your business.
I am sure you are excellent at what you do but without a system and excellent follow up tools you are working in your business, not on your business. Am I right?
It is a new month. STOP!! Take a look at a great new way to be OUTSTANDING in your market space by looking at outconnecting.com.
The fisher-price simple way to build the relationships with awesome emails, great newsletters and beautiful cards (did I say cards, real cards sent in the mail). Your customers will love them, and you will be top of mind every time.
Let's fool the competition with this outstanding tool.
HAVE A BEAUTIFUL LIFE!
by Markus Warwick
Spring is here and so is the pollen! Everyone is starting to plant flowers, trees, and get their lawns looking pristine. It is amazing how much we spend each year to get our yards looking beautiful. With all the hustle and bustle of life and maintaining our yards, we sometimes forget the most important thing, protecting our families with the proper life insurance. For less than what it costs to maintain our lawns, you can protect your whole family with life insurance. Did you know that 9 out 10 people agree that everyone should own life insurance? Did you also know that 10 out of 10 Liberty Mutual Insurance agents agree?
