Give and You Will Receive

Happy Holidays to anyone who happens to be reading this blog entry.

Strange, but I do some of my best thinking…(you didn’t really think I was going there, did you?) actually when I’m out running.  Probably should be more focused on my exercise, but oh well.  Anyway, I digress.

Yesterday, while in a client’s office, I found a dime on the floor of the controller’s office. So I did what just about everyone would do, I picked it up and gave it to him.  Today while I was out on my rather chilly (this is Minnesota) run, I found a dime in the street.  Coincidence?  I think not!

It made me think of an important business lesson I have learned since joining B2B CFO.  When you give your customers more than they expect and don’t expect anything in return, the result is you get more business.  In my case, I work very hard to help my clients get way more cash into their business than I will ever cost them.  That’s my focus every day when I go to a client’s office.  It seems so simple, yet without staying focused it is not always easy to practice.  However, I find if I operate by this principle then my business remains strong and will continue to remain strong.

Maybe a little life lesson in there as well.
