It just clearly popped into my head today as I was being helped by people that are helpful to me… These are my neighbors. This is the correct way.
That’s not a problem; that’s not a motive; that’s the way it is. That is every town, everywhere.
We are all individuals, no matter where we live. We all have things we need to do and we all need the help. It’s finding out someone’s desire that is the first step. Second, you tell them what you’d like. What do you want? Here’s what I want, let’s talk.
This is not business, this is conversation. We SHOULD talk about what we want.
It’s an elementary point to make, but let me ask this, how many business owners have you seen that do not understand this? We barter, we make deals, we come to an agreement.
What do they want? What can I give them? It’s a process.
And THAT, I think, is “the problem with this country”. People are not able to see what it is the other person wants. Often times, we don’t get a face to talk to. How could we actually know how to give if we don’t know who it is we’re giving to?
Small towns orbit in a different circumference. All we have are faces to talk to. We’re used to faces. We like faces.
