Be a Connector


It seems that every day Iím looking for a resource or referral. I recently needed to find: a non-toxic fumigation company for my parents, a lawyer who deals with contracts and agreements, for a friend and a winery to assist with a special event. I put in a few calls to a couple of Connectors that I know. These are associates or friends who know people from various professions and areas of expertise. Within a short time I had the referrals that I needed.

Glenn McKinney, of Jefferson Pilot Financial is an expert Financial Planner. Heís also an expert Connector. He enjoys meeting new people and pays attention to what they have to offer. McKinney knows that he may never use the services of the person that he just met, but chances are one of his customers will. Glenn is the perfect Connector. In fact he is so good at connecting that he will often get calls asking for non-financial help. Thatís when he pulls out his handy PDA and looks up a number of someone that he personally knows, and passes the information along. He made the connection.

Notice the word personally. A good connector knows that itís not only important to be a link, itís important to give credible connections.

Growing your business is not always about your products or services. Many times itís about building that relationship, earning trust and credibility.

Being a Connector is a great way to gain influence in your area or industry. Like Glenn McKinney, pay attention and be a Connector. You will make yourself a valuable resource to your customers, friends and associates.
