How much money do you spend a year with your attorney? Your accountant? What about the vendor that you spend the most with? Do you do work for them? Do they know people you could get as clients?
I’m not a big fan of making it mandatory for anyone with whom I spend money to spend money with me. But I do expect a little help – a referral, a suggestion, a lead, some type of help growing my business.
In the coming weeks, go see your accountant, your attorney, your vendors. Tell them you are looking for some business and ask them if they know anyone who could use your products or services. If they truly value your business and respect your talents, they will help you. Give it a try; it will work; it works for Grunder Landscaping Co.!
