Building Relationships in Business

What does it look like when you build relationships in business?

An example of what relationships our business has helped to build, would be Deanna for providing her with anthuriums and garden roses for her Fathers’ funeral this past Spring. I talked to her after the funeral and she said the fresh flowers were lovely and at that time I gave her some tips on rainbow roses for her daughters’ baptism.

Another example, would be Maurina. I designed a Snowman fresh flower arrangement for this young woman, last Xmas 2013. This Christmas Maurina talked to me about a Xmas Craft Sale, next month, and suggested that I be a vendor.

This past year my clients have started to come back for additional help on a new idea they have.

Thanks to my clients for building with me. Maurina, Deanna, Lisa, Bissan, Carrie, and all my clients! I am so happy that I am beginning to have return customers.

In gratitude, always,

Appreciation and Thank You

Learning and Understanding Gives me Greater Appreciation! #IamThankful

Many opportunities with my clients have given me appreciation of their requests and wishes.

One such opportunity comes to mind, when I first started my business, a year after. It was my first wedding for fresh cut flowers and my girlfriend from high school was the client. We hadn’t seen each other for 30 years, as I had moved to Winnipeg, 24 hours away. My girlfriend and I, when I moved back to Ontario 20 years ago, found each other on Facebook, 5 years ago. My friend picked up where we left off in high school and entrusted me with designing the flowers for her soon to be daughter in law.

Twelve in the Wedding Party and I paid attention to every detail that the Bride had requested. I am thankful for my friend, trusting me with this endeavour and I have carried what I learned about the consultations and designing, into my future weddings for my clients. I have learned that each new client that I have, teaches me something new.

To the Brides and Grooms and families! Cheers!

#IamThankful for Business Relationships

#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!

#IamThankful for my guest bloggers as well. Check out Ellen’s latest post on her favorite fall desserts. Yummy ideas for Thanksgiving!

#SocialChallenge Day 4: 10 Things I Would Tell My 16 Year Old Self

Now that I am no longer 16, time has proven to be a wiser teacher than I thought. I thought I knew it all back then. Yeah, I knew nothing! So here are some things I would tell myself if I could go back and speak to myself at 16. Hopefully my children will read this someday and avoid some of the mistakes I’ve made.

  1. You deserve to be respected.
  2. Stop trying to please everyone. It’s impossible.
  3. You will only spend about 5% of your life in high school. Whatever you’re embarrassed about today probably won’t be remembered in 20 years.
  4. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
  5. Never chase a man who is not chasing you.
  6. Credit cards are the devil. Pay cash always!
  7. Don’t be scared to try something new.
  8. You will fail sometimes. Learn the lesson and keep it moving.
  9. Don’t pick a career based on the money you’ll make. The money won’t matter if you’re miserable.
  10. You’ll never get this time back, so make the most of it.

I thought I would keep it simple today. Are these some things you would tell yourself at 16 if you could? What would you add to the list? Drop your comments below.
