I'M Not A Mind Reader

Services for Real Estate Pros with BNI

Psycotic? Maybe. Psychic? Definately not!!!

An earlier post touched on those five famous words, "How can I help you?".  I can assure you that I am not a mind reader, so it is relatively safe to say that I do not know the best way I can help others.  I depend on them to share their needs.  Not knowing the best way to help is probably true with most of your relationships.

Being prepared to to let people know how they can help you is essential to enlisting their assistance.  Guess what?  It is likely to be different for everyone.  Different people will be able to help in different ways, depending on their profession, networks and skills.

Inventory your network and uncover the best way for those you are in relationship with to help you.

So the question is: Are you prepared when someone asks, "How can I help you?".

The best part of being a BNI member is you have so many others working to market you.  Make sure you follow through and deliver what you say you can.  BNI is a great group to belong to.

When you combine that with the resources of AR, there is no limit to what you can achieve.
