On our early morning call the topic of our WOAW Power Tools session was, building relationships and how long must you know someone before you do business with them? It is not a matter of how long because you could know someone 30 years and not be pleased with there services, for me I watch there character, consistency, interaction with clients, and how there work is. I do listen to others concerning them, but I don’t, what do I mean by this, Excellent to one person may just be okay work to another and okay work may be excellent work to another, people see things differently. When talking about the relationships, someone ask, what was the length of time we known someone and do we keep in touch, everyone on the call said they knew people from high school and college, but as I looked back and it did’nt take but a minute..LOL.. My first friends were family Lisa Askew, Faye Sander and may earliest memory of them is when I was around 5, then my best friend outside of family members although she has become apart of our family and I hers, is Dorothy wells, we have been friends since 3rd grade.
We always knew where each other was,we been there for each other through nasty divorces, tragedies, deaths, births, marriage, successes and failures. Building lasting relationships is Gods perfect plan, I her people say things like this, “they are in my life for a season” or “it was just meant for us to know each other for that moment”, but truth is, that is just a brick wall we put up to keep from getting hurt in relationship, because Gods plan is for us to do life together, because it shows His perfect love. Now those friendships I mentioned, were there all good times, heck no, we got mad at each other, cussed each other, said bad things about each other and even stop speaking for a moment, only a moment cause I can’t go without sharing stuff with them.LOL.. but that is what built our friendship, not the absents of disagreements but the presence of love and forgiveness, BUILD RELATIONSHIPS! business and personal and watch your life change.
