Wow, it has been a long time since I’ve sent a word or two out regarding building your business and building success for yourself.
During the Summer of 2009 I received the opportunity to join the nonprofit world and take over as the Director of Development and Marketing for Interfaith Senior Programs in Waukesha County. The experience has been fantastic. I realized I have the tools and skills to move forward in this new venture. But most important I am willing to learn new skill sets, and new information to build our agency.
Relationships if you want to be successful anywhere in life it is about building relationships, connecting with people from all walks and life and being genuinely interested in what they do. Amazing when I looked in the dictionary the key words listed under relate; establish relation between, connection between things, kindred and a word I don’t know consanguinity.
Taking ownership where you work or your own business focuses you on building relationships with others. I attended a very interesting networking training at the beginning of the year. The speaker shared that when attending a networking event it is not what you can get that matters, but what you can give. Talk about seeing networking in a whole new light.
“Meet ‘n Greet” weekly to learn more about a new connection or rekindle an old connection. How can you give to others will in the long run return to you in some shape or form.
Who can you build relationship with today?
