Be like Mr Costas

I received sad news recently that an old friend, someone I had known for years, had passed away. The news was entirely out of the blue (as most sudden deaths are) and when I was asked how I best remembered my buddy Mal, I immediately thought of how much he gave. Mal was the typeContinue reading “Be like Mr Costas”

the culture of simple

Simple goals make for a clear path. The clear path brings the simple goal within reach. With clear, simple messages we’re understood. So why do so many networkers make it difficult to refer them? While we’ve all been affected by global challenges these past few months … Covid and social distancing, Brexit indecision, global uncertainty,Continue reading “the culture of simple”

Small steps, BIG gains

My friends and I are meeting regularly to discuss the world, the business opportunity, changing times, where we can help and lots of other ‘stuff’ in-between. By meeting regularly, via ZOOM we’re able to keep ‘ahead of the game’ with a short-cut to solutions through trusted relationships. Around a dozen meet for a little overContinue reading “Small steps, BIG gains”

having a chat …

Networking works for everyone, anytime, anywhere … and the magic is … all that is required is participation through conversation. If you’re prepared to commit time in developing relations, reaching out by offering support and sharing ideas (or lack of ..!) along the way then, as a naturally inquisitive bunch, we’re going to create engagement,Continue reading “having a chat …”

The people person

Early in my career Terry and I shared a carpool.  We’d alternate weekly the responsibility for the drive across town, some forty minutes of discussion on the latest footy results, when we’d be off fishing again, perhaps a beer and most importantly what he, my trade mentor, had planned for me prior the day onContinue reading “The people person”

Gossip is good …

As a relatively ‘green’ salesperson back in the 1980’s I found out, pretty early on in my chosen career that it’s not particularly what you have that’s important, it’s more like how you relate. ‘What’s new?’ I hear you say. OK, here’s how I woke up … It was while spending time on the road,Continue reading “Gossip is good …”

Just passing through …

  It’s ‘that’ time again David … What’s that you mean Charlie? I’m seeing a lot of interest in our business forum lately, much activity from those looking for the quick fix, you know, those out distributing the business cards, looking specifically for the next order, something to fill the hole. Hunters? We see lotsContinue reading “Just passing through …”
