A Consultant Says, “Build Relationships, Then Build Your Career / Business”

Growing your business, or your career, is a matter of “quality over quantity”.  It’s a matter of trust.

When a business owner tells you that s/he has “a LARGE contact (or email) list”, ask him/her, “tell me about one of them.”

Does it matter if they have built up a large contact list or email list?

My guest on this podcast of MAKE MORE MONEY BY GIVING BETTER PRESENTATIONS, Jerry Gitchel, proves that it is more important to have a smaller list, but to build a relationship with them.

Jerry is CEO of Leverage Unlimited. For three decades, Jerry has helped business professionals make technology work and businesses grow. He has helped Fortune 500 companies, non-profits and solo entrepreneurs.

Working as a consultant, he has seen how many organizations spend money on technology, but not “Live Ware” – the staff and the clients/customers who most impact their success.

Currently, Jerry helps his clients to make more effective use of CRM (Contact Relationship Management) platforms to truly build relationships. He helps them to develop strategies to complement the CRM systems. I that way they grow their careers or businesses.

If you really want to grow your business or advance your career, Jerry CHALLENGES you to RECONNECT with old clients, or old friends or distant relatives.  Learn more at CRMSuccess.com/reconnect.
