Do You Know WHO to Develop Relationships With? {Part 1}


Building relationships in business can seem like a never-ending task. In fact, we don’t have a finding people challenge, we have a sorting through people challenge. We’ve been taught to “get out and meet as many people as we can,” and yet, lots of us are still looking for key people who can make a difference in our lives, careers, and ultimately, bottom lines. Clearly, “spray and pray” doesn’t work!

So, how do you know if you should pursue a business relationship with someone? Here are three quick pre-qualifiers that will take out the guesswork for you:

  1. Do you like them?

  2. Do they like you?

  3. Do you know that you know that you can help them (or their clients)?

Don’t move on to the second or third question unless the answer to the previous question is a resounding “YES!” Any hesitation or quick intuitive hit is a sign you probably should move on to the next person.

You won’t love every person and vice versa — and that’s okay! You’re looking for about twelve dozen people total for your entire career to be blossoming and prosperous. Life is much too short to spend it trying to “make the relationship work.”
