I have been spending more time listening to podcasts from Stanford and I have started reading again. It has been great! These podcasts are so valuable. I still have to believe that if you are not learning and pushing yourself to grow than you will miss opportunities and fail to understand the mechanisms of the current situation. Society and business is changing in ways than many people still do not understand, the days of win – lose may not be over, but how you treat your colleagues, business contacts, employees and even your competition will be reflected very clearly to the world you live in. It is now becoming more about building and sustaining relationships and helping people achieve the results they desire. Big companies take notice, standard marketing practices will no longer apply, you must listen to every single one of your customers as there is very little room for mass marketing and response.
