You’re networking nonstop. You’re reaching out constantly. You’re working overtime to expand your connections and grow relationships to benefit your business. You know your business growth rests on your relationships. But do you know how to leverage your relationships to make them your strongest center of growth this year for your business? You can engage with the people connected to your business and grow new relationships and contribute directly to your bottom line — relationships with clients, with prospects, with strategic partners, with community or conference organizers, with the media. In this conversation, we’ll talk about why cultivating relationships is not enough and how you can activate your relationships to grow your business. 

In this session with you will learn three simple ways to leverage your relationships to grow your business this year:

  • The repeatable method for persuasive, successful conversations that bring in opportunities to grow your income THIS year
  • The tricks for tracking down the right relationships that will convert audiences into clients
  • The absolute essentials of designing your messaging to bring in more of the right relationships so people are less confused and you’re not over-giving

  • Hone critical questioning and listening skills
  • Present a compelling offer
