The Little Things Increase Your Network Of Influence Big Time!

By: Josh Hinds

The other day I got a note from my friend Bob Burg (www.burg.com)
letting me know I'd been quoted in Steve Goodier's inspirational
ezine (www.lifesupportsystem.com). I'm used to Bob taking the time to
let me know of things like that, or dropping an e-mail of
appreciation for little things that which might have otherwise gone
unnoticed by most people (myself
included in some cases).

However, this time it set me on the path of thinking just how
powerful what he'd done is. Perhaps more importantly how we might all
take a lesson from him and be all the better for it.

Let me recount the event and I think you'll see where I am coming
from.

Bob sent the e-mail simply to let me know (and as a way to say,
congratulations), which I of course appreciated. I sent an e-mail to
Steve to thank him for quoting me. Steve wrote back and from our
meeting he's agreed to have some of his articles appear in my
newsletter.

So just right there you have a win, win situation. Here's where it
gets interesting though. Bob has greatly strengthened his
relationship with both me and Steve just from that one little e-mail.

Here's another interesting way of looking at this. The next time I
have a lead or believe someone would be a good match for Bob, you can
bet I'm not going to think twice about dropping him a message about
it.

The incredible thing is that he's cultivating powerful relationships,
both business and personal with people just like me all the time.
This is a lesson we can all take to heart. And it's not something
that is going to an inordinate amount of effort on our part to put
into action. It will however take constantly being on the lookout for
ways to add new value to your relationships.

In the process you'll strengthen your personal network of peopleFind Article,
which in turn creates vast opportunities.
