Success: Small Business Network

Who's On Your Team? Do You Have a Guide?

Last night, I attended Keith Ferrazzi's full house, book tour event talking about the power of lifeline relationships that help you achieve success in business and life. Keith says, "It's important to build your dream team."

Lifeline Relationships Guide the Way

It's all about forming mentoring relationships and peer-to-peer connections with people you can trust to have your best interests at heart. The idea is "Whose Got Your Back?" Get business advice you can trust.

Can You Accept Assistance?

At the event, my car was parked in what I thought was an impossible space. The goal to exit that space and arrive at my next destination was clear. But, how to get out of that jam was not.

Q: A valet asked, "May I move that for you? Or, can I guide you?"

A: "Yes, thank you. You can be my guide."

Success! The car was moved easily. I learned through this simple guidance how to replicate that task next time. Thanks Duane.

This little story about guidance demonstrates how a little help made it so much easier to get from a to b. That's what SCORE is all about being a guide to make it easier for you to achieve your goal.

It's amazing what happens when you add to your network, knowledge base and simply accept a guide. Start now, ask a SCORE mentor for advice online.
