  17. 17. We live again in a relationship economy Transactions are the by-products of healthy relationships. The global economy is shifting from a mass media, consumer mass-marketing model to one that is far more emergent and decentralized. The involuntary loyalty of quot;stickyquot; services is falling victim to the far preferable voluntary loyalty won through responsiveness, quality, excellent service, reliability and trustworthiness. Sometimes, transactions don't matter. -Jerry Michalski
  18. 18. Relationships are hard and messy and subtle
  19. 19. They come to your aid when you least expect em in weird and wonderful ways
  20. 20. Think of it as relationship bricolage “Bricolage is what tinkers do- collecting odd bits of stuff they think may be potentially useful, then using whatever bits seem to work in the context of some later repair job. Simple. And yet profound. Because the bits the bricoleur ends up using were not designed for the use they end up being put to”. Chris Locke
