It's easy to fall into the trap of thinking we need to meet different people in order to achieve our goals. But the truth is this: we merely need to get to know those people already in our network much better. The quality and depth of relationships we build with people we already know, like, and trust AND who know, like, and trust us, can truly be your personal blue-blood trust fund!
Look at the goals you set for 2012 - how many of them were accomplished because of people you already knew? How many more of them could still be accomplished by the year's end if you dug a little deeper into those people and asked for help? Probably most of them!
Today I want to highlight a dear friend and business person I highly respect, Doug Kasper of Doug Kasper Int'l. He is an entrepreneurial life coach specializing in helping those in direct sales achieve their goals in less time and with less stress.
He launched an internet radio program last week. To get the program launched quickly, Doug tapped into people that:
- he already had a strong relationship with
- were successful in direct sales
- were willing to share their success "secrets" on his show
The first guest was Gene Wood of Life's Pure Balance Gene has a unique approach to building his business through relationships and referrals. His incentives to business owners help them show appreciation to their employees for little or no cost. It creates a better work environment and loyalty as well as decreasing absenteeism, sickness, etc. Productivity and morale are up. A win for everyone!
Doug interviewed Gene and got some great golden nuggets that will help those in sales, especially in the direct selling arena.
