1983 with my Burger King crown
When I was a teenager I planned to be the Queen of Something! I just had no idea what it would be! I did know one thing....I knew I was social and loved people! I also knew in my heart that I could be anything I wanted as long as I wanted it bad enough and it was something that made me feel good.
All throughout my childhood and even to this day, my mother is incredibly good at "hooking people up!" I don't mean on dates, I mean positioning them to get what they needed quickly and easily. If we were in the line at
the grocery store and she overheard someone saying they really needed new tires, she would politely interrupt and give them a friend’s name at Discount Tire. It was the little things like that! She didn't want anything in return; she just wanted to give a quick solution and hopefully make someone’s day!
As I grew up, I began to do the same thing. I can't help it! It's the Golden Rule! When I get my nails done, it's game on! There are so many conversations going on at one time! People needing help with connnections in every chair! I like to see how many referrals I can give our in the hour that I'm held captive by my nail tech!
I had a mental referral book in my head! When cell phones came in 1990, at least that’s when I started to use my 1st phone, then I would keep numbers in my call log and now of course our smart phones allow us to do
everything! Even bump our phones together and exchange numbers/contacts! It’s awesome and easy to share contacts! Technology has made it so simple to be Queens of Referrals! It's our little black book that can duplicate itself, if we want it too! :)
My goal for 2013 is to become the Queen of Referrals and grow The GRG so that we are unstoppable when it comes to helping others grow their businesses. I want us to become so comfortable with the connections we have at our fingertips!
I look forward to and PLAN on helping each and every GRG member get connected and become to the Queen of Something in their world! See you at our December 6th meeting! I truly can’t wait to hear what you’d like to be the Queen of in the year 2013!
