This week I want to talk about professionals versus amateurs.
Some people say it’s really expensive to hire a professional. I’ve actually heard that it’s expensive to work with me…I know that. I want to say to the people who say this, if you think it’s expensive working with a professional like me, wait until you hire an amateur.
There are some things you want to “invest” in. Areas such as yourself, your team and your organizations professional development. You’ll do so because when you have flourishing employees you’ll have flourishing relationships with your customers. If you don’t have flourishing relationships with your customers, I’m going to venture the reason why is because you don’t have flourishing relationships with your employees. They don’t have a role model, they don’t have an avatar, they don’t have someone raising the flag and saying, “this is how we do things.”
If you want to have flourishing relationships with your employees and your customers, why would you ever entrust that to an amateur? Hire the best people you can find to help you flourish. If you do that, your employees will flourish. When your employees flourish, your customers will flourish. If your customers flourish in a relationship with you, your business will flourish. Don’t relegate that to amateurs. Hire the best professional you can find, and you will be amazed at the results you achieve.
That’s it ladies and gentlemen, I hope you have a fabulous week, I will see you here again next week. Take care.
