The Coach's Corner

While of course there are MANY factors critical to your success, in this week’s Coach’s Corner I talk about what I feel just might be the #1 KEY… building relationships.

Have a look and let me know your thoughts.

And for those of you here in the US I want to wish you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy the short holiday week everyone.

Thank you,

    Hi Rich,
    How do you “break ground” with these people?
    My assumption is that you are acknowledging their work, but how do you connect on a personal level, or draw attention to what you do politely, expectantly and professionally. What was it that YOU did to attract a relationship between yourself and your primary respected targets (so to speak)? How long should I wait before connecting. Without my website, ebook, Social media sites…is it wiser to make sure that some of these projects are in place or should I cultivate the relationship over a longer period of time, during this fundamental stage of laying the foundation for what I will ultimately do. I guess I’m asking…how soon is too soon? About this weeks homework…I think there were three or four things. I remember the “OWN IT” poster, choosing a low, medium and high ticket item to funnel and grow my list (can the low be a free offer/added value for subscribing to a newsletter or articles?), you also mentioned the business plan (I’m a little lost on that one, because I’ve not followed the particular example you have…a little baffling to me), and I think there was a fourth one I can’t remember.
    Thanks for your help,

  • Charlene

    Nice video Rich and as always great information.
    And a very Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  • Thanks Shankar and Charlene. And Brigitte, great questions, hope you got your answers on our group call just now!

  • Merry CHI Morning Rich

    I totally agree relationship building is all about us being open and upfront with them..either by interesting blogs articles etc. Thank you for the template which I,am lost on some aspects, is there any way we could see a finished ready to go copy, so that we can see how you have put the details together?? I have a meeting with fund raisers coming up and I have to present my plan and cash flow in order to apply!!!

    Thank you for all your vital input, always play all your recordings and videos on a daily basis to help me move in the right direction. I revert back to The EMPIRE recording with Bob Doyle where I say whoop whoop I love you Rich..and you say I love you too and yes I,am a fan a big one of your work. Keep the good stuff coming. Thank you for all your help.

    Kind Regards and warmest wishes on this very wet and dark morning in Cardigan Bay Wales

    Love and blessings to you and Robin
