#IamThankful for Business Relationships
In business you never know who you will meet, serve or make referrals too. I find this to be one of the coolest things as I build relationships with my business clients and through networking. I began my business in 2013, as a stay at home mom of two small children. In 2013, I was not working in my business as much as my youngest was still a baby.
Now, I find it energizing to get out and network and meet new people. It is, in a sense, socializing for me as I am home or on outings with my children most days. When I am networking, I don’t have the mentality that everyone will be a possible client of mine, but I share my business and how I can serve them and others they may know. In return, I like to get to know what others do so that when someone with a need for something approaches me, I will have a business connection to refer them to so they can get their needs met. In return, I am sure others would do the same for me and that is what building business relationships is all about in my mind.
Building a business is all about building the relationship. The human factor in business is still going strong in my eyes. If you don’t come across as ready to serve wholeheartedly, friendly, and competent in your industry, then one may wonder why you are doing business? You must have a passion for what you do and be willing to go the extra mile for your clients, no matter what the cost to you. As I continue to grow my skincare and graphic businesses, #IamThankful for all the wonderful women and men I have met and those I will meet in the future. #IamThankful for their encouragement and their inspiring stories. I see it is in stepping out of your comfort zone that you really begin to grow. #IamThankful for the love and support of my family as I continue on my path to success as a business owner!
