Make it part of your routine to add more ways to get referrals into your business. As you develop the new habits they will become a natural part of your routine and then you will see an increase in your results.
It Doesn't Have to Feel Like Begging
Part of the reason that we often neglect the referral side of business is that we have an unwarranted feeling of “begging” instead of a confident feeling of deserving more customers. The actions and thoughts required for an effective referral system will make you a more confident business owner and a more successful entrepreneur, simply because you will become part of the minority that can comfortably ask for a referral.
I recommend making a game, at least in your mind, of asking for referrals. And remember that most successful people have a record number of “misses” before they achieved their record number of “hits”… Start asking today.
