  2. 2. Once upon a time, you were small…<br />
  3. 3. …and your parents taught you a few things about life<br />Have fun!<br />
  4. 4. Share with others<br />
  5. 5. …and spend time with friends<br />
  6. 6. You loved to learn and spend time doing what you wanted to do<br />
  7. 7. …and you most likely LOVED getting gifts!<br />
  8. 8. Somewhere along the way you realized that everything wasn’t about you!<br />
  9. 9. You could share with others<br />
  10. 10. …and give gifts too!<br />
  11. 11. Halt!<br />…let’s talk about gifts and giving for a minute<br />
  12. 12. What constitutes “sharing” and “giving a good gift”<br />…especially in business?<br />Nicely packaged, expensive items?<br />
  13. 13. …handing out money to your customers?<br />
  14. 14. …a gift card to that special store<br />…only visited on rare occasions?<br />
  15. 15. …tickets to the Opera or that special dinner theater downtown?<br />
  16. 16. …perhaps…<br />
  17. 17. Who wouldn’t want any of those gifts?<br />…and who wouldn’t appreciate your “thoughtfulness.”<br />
  18. 18. But, when you gave it…<br />
  19. 19. …did you expect something in return?<br />
  20. 20. …or give it without any expectations?<br />
  21. 21. …and does it matter?<br />
  22. 22. Yes,<br /> …if you are building long term relationships <br />
  23. 23. Are you prepared to give more of yourself in ways that are meaningful to your clients?<br />
  24. 24. …to share something that took a lot of <br />time, <br />attention<br />and <br />detail <br />to produce?<br />
  25. 25. …to help others obtain their goals and overcome their own business challenges?<br />
  26. 26. …regardless of what comes back to you?<br />
  27. 27. Now is the time…<br />
  28. 28. … share your talents<br /> … contribute when it is difficult<br /> … give your very best to your customers<br />To freely …<br />
  29. 29. Are you ready?<br />Are you willing?<br /> …it’s the new economy<br />
  30. 30. Take action today!<br />
  31. 31. Give something meaningful to your customers right now<br />…with no thought of when (or if) they will return the favor<br />
  32. 32. …and watch what happens to your relationship<br />
