 Networking Tip #1

We totally believe that the most successful business owners don’t do networking or go to networking events; instead they build a small network of strategic alliances that brings them business for years to come. Which would you rather have – A one-time client who buys once directly from you, or a friend who never buys a thing from you but sends you clients for years to come? Networking is a treadmill that traps you and keeps you coming back for years to get one client at a time. But a true NETWORK of individuals forming long-lasting relationships allows you to stop networking and rely on those few who are sending you clients regularly.
