Episode #166: Mastering Client Connections

Join us today as Colleen Interview’s Deb Feder on Take the Leap. In this episode, we dove deep into the world of building businesses one conversation at a time. Here are three key takeaways that I believe will resonate with all of you:

  1. Curiosity is Key: Deb emphasized the importance of being genuinely curious in conversations. By actively listening and asking thoughtful questions, we can build stronger relationships and trust with our clients and colleagues. Remember, small talk is underrated and can lead to meaningful connections!
  2. Consistent Follow-Up: Following up with people is crucial in nurturing relationships. Whether it’s a quick check-in email or a casual message to show you’re thinking of them, consistent follow-up can lead to long-lasting loyalty and trust. Remember, it’s the little gestures that make a big difference.
  3. Building a Strong Network: Deb highlighted the significance of quality over quantity when it comes to networking. Focus on building a strong, loyal network of clients and colleagues rather than trying to reach a large number of people. Nurture those relationships, and they will pay off in the long run.

I hope these takeaways inspire you to approach your business relationships with curiosity, consistency, and quality. Let’s continue to build strong connections and grow our businesses one conversation at a time.
