As our parents and grandparents told us, we only have one chance to make a good first impression. Make smart use of first impressions.
When someone sends you an email, calls you, leaves you a voice mail message, pings you on Social Media, etc. think about how you typically first respond to that person.
What if one of the first sentences out of your mouth or in your email or Facebook reply was “I’m all about paying it forward and I’d love you to ask me to prove it.”
I’m suggesting that this one simple act and then backing it up with action will transform your business and personal life.
It has mine.
