Accountability Activity - Who Are Your Strategic Alliances?

Accountability Activity - to get you refocused on what needs to happen now to plan, launch, manage, grow or leverage your profitable business.

Strategic Alliances are people who like and respect you and who come in contact with enough people on a daily and weekly basis to regularly refer you to the right people. They are some of the most influential people you know, natural networkers who seem to be connected to everyone, and who love putting people together, just for the fun of it.

  • Make a list of the five most influential people you know. These are usually natural networkers who run into lots of people and would be happy to tell others about you when appropriate.
  • Call all five of these Strategic Alliances this week to set up coffee or lunch in the next two weeks (your treat!)
  • When you're face to face, educate them on what you do for clients, your System (why you are unique) and who your Ideal Clients are.
  • And of course, offer to do the same for them.

Let me know what happens. Please share the results of your action.
