Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview on the show is Nikki Pett, a lady who is an entrepreneur, author, speaker, passionate trainer and philanthropist and believes that the way to a flourishing business is by working as hard as she can on the relationship building side of things.
And believe me she really works hard on the bit that so many people forget about nowadays the offline personal touch, writing anywhere from 1000 to 2000 personal notes a year.
If you have a great relationship with people, not only will they trust you, but they will tell their friends about you too seems to be the order of the day..
Nikki Pett has been in the promotions industry since 2000, going on to establish her own company in 2002 when she realized that there was a definite gap in the industry.
She didn’t see that the training that was being provided to companies across America was achieving the results that she would have expected.
She called it “hit and run mentality” training and knew when she published the bestselling book Relationship ROI that she had to teach companies to make the most of what they already had.
Sure go looking for new sales leads, but for god sake do everything you can with the customers you already have.
Nurture the relationship, build the trust, and make sure that they don’t want to go anywhere else
But can you take these same strategies into your personal lives, and build better and stronger relationships with partners, friends and colleagues?
Can you look at gaining ROI in whatever field you focus your energies in?
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays Free podcast, with the one and only Nikki Pett
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Nikki Pett such as:
Why she tries so hard everyday to make life a playground. Don’t have a life with work and play in opposition. Just have a life.
How she was made to recall flexing her entrepreneurial spirit as a child after hearing a speech by her step-father at her Wedding.
How she found the struggle with cash flow in the beginning of her business a huge issue, and almost gave up, but was persuaded after the support of her husband to keep going on.
How she came to the realisation that she was able to create her own economic climate, and what a liberating thought that was.
How she likes nothing better than dancing in her office, as this is being authentically her and make people love her more and more.
How listening is the number one part to any communication and is the thing that is sadly forgotten by most business owners.
