Excerpts from Earn Trust

  • 1“When you listen–as I’ve learned through the experience I just mentioned–and ask the right questions, the client or prospect feels your focus is on helping them, not selling them, and they remember it.”
  • 2“You never know where the sharing of common interests may take you and your relationship with a client.”
  • 3“One way to view this is that when a friend asks for help, you’re going to try to help them, and providing services is just another way to help them even though it is business-oriented.”
  • 4“Remaining top of mind with your clients is one of the most critical parts of keeping your client relationship healthy and increases the potential for recurring work with the client.”
