Harnessing the ‘Power of We’: Build Relationships to Build Your Business

The Power of We

The ‘Power of We’. It’s at the root of everything good in our world. And relationships are the cornerstone of any business. When we work together, we can conquer just about anything. As Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” I am committed to changing the world one business at a time. That’s precisely why I started Leadership Girl in the first place. Providing resources, education, and sometimes just BEING there.

How Women Can Leverage the Relationships They Build

How women can leverage the relationships they build

When it comes to building relationships, it seems that women do it better than anyone else. Most women know what to say to start and maintain a friendship or even a casual acquaintance relationship. Unfortunately, many women stop exactly at this point. They don’t go farther with the relationships in their life. They don’t know how to capitalize on the relationships in their life, and they end up missing vital opportunities because of this.

What’s the Secret to Getting People to Buy What You’re Selling?

Getting people to buy what you're selling

On the subject of selling, one of my favorite sales gurus, Kendrick Shope, says “All things being equal, friends buy from friends. All things being unequal, friends still buy from friends”.  There is one little secret to getting people to buy what you’re selling.   Truth: People buy with their emotions.   Think about it this way. Why the heck would people line up for days to buy the next version of the iPhone if they weren’t buying with their emotions? They feel a deep desire for this THING. Because it’s sexy. It’s cool. It’s awesome. They have DESIRE.   When
