It’s been a hectic second week back after labor day and I’m so encouraged by what I’m seeing in the economy. It’s as if the world decided to suddenly get back to work after a long dormant summer.
The one tip I want to leave you guys with is that no matter how rich your client, your boss, or your prospect is, they cannot resist free. It doesn’t matter whether you take them out to lunch, buy them a drink, take them to a baseball game, or send them a book. He or she can be worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and that small $20 gesture will do the world for you!
You may think it’s odd that you are giving something to someone who can afford anything, but you are mistaken. Those who are richer than you and can afford anything are generally the ones who are always giving. Hence, as soon as you give them something, you’ll stir up their appreciation that they never knew they had.
In the spirit of free, here are some of the posts out there which do just that.
