It’s no secret that one of the greatest gifts someone can give is a referral to another person.
That starts with getting out of your chair, and perhaps your comfort zone. It’s about visiting and communicating with current friends, clients, and others.
The idea behind this article came about by having my lunch meeting cancelled by a client (because their previous meeting had taken much longer than they had anticipated, and they had another meeting right after lunch). It’s okay, because we rescheduled our lunch meeting.
Well, what I ended up doing is going and visiting good friend to say hello and see how he was doing.
During our conversation, he had mentioned that he was looking for a specific type of service provider and it got me thinking. One of my very valued clients does exactly what he was looking for, and I knew my client was extremely competent, so I offered to introduce the two.
Well good things happened, and the two will be working together in the future.
All of this happened because I made an impromptu stop by meeting happen and great things came of it.
Now get out there and make things happen!
