What’s a subject or activity you’ve got a lot of knowledge around?
Keep in mind even though people may not buy from you NEVER EVER SEVER THE RELATIONSHIP!! Do not be upset that person wont buy from you because when you build rapport with others they will refer you even if they have never bought. I have 1000’s of people in my sphere of influence and although I haven’t bought from everyone- I still refer because I know, like and trust them!
I have been networking for over 20 years and one thing I have learned is RAPPORT!
The best way to flourish in your business is through your power partners. Build rapport and build know, like and trust relationships. Schedule a one to one meeting for coffee, lunch of if long distance, over the phone.
