Getting that crucial introduction

Having a mutual business associate introduce you to a potential client or  a potential strategic business partner certainly helps to pave the way. However once this door is opened for you, it is now up you where the relationship goes.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Making the right connections

Making the right connections is so important as we work to build our business. However, if you do not follow up with your connections chances are you simply will not get the job or sign that contract. Follow up is absolutely essential.
