We all hope that our business experience and knowledge will benefit us in this economy. With social media, & new technology nothing is impossible!
With more jobs, new commercial building projects, a boost to the single family housing industry, new construction, and investment industries we can indeed grow our economy as a whole nationally.
The smart move is to prepare accordingly, and be ready to move fast and aggressively on new opportunities. Building a smart team of experienced partners in the professions that are crucial to your business is the best way to the success you may hope to gain during the next few years.
We normally seek advice from friends, family, or people they trust and respect. Whether the individual has the expertise in the field of interest or not, is a different story.
Many times they have expertise or education in another field, but lack the experience in the fields you're investing in. Most often, people have a tendency to trust people, because of personal relationships, rather than the professional expertise.
Generally, when we are referred to experts in a given field or business, but don't listen to them, even after seeking the professional advice. Mainly because a mutual trust has not yet been established over a period of time.
For starters, if you don't trust the professional, why pay them, or seeking advice from them to begin with?
If you know what to do, how to do it, where to look, why are you seeking advise to begin with? It's just like paying to go to your Doctor or Lawyer, and not taking their professional advice.
Remember: Professionals stay in business based on reputation and referrals, so it's very important for them to get it right, so you can refer them to others, time and again.
Most importantly is the need to build your own team. This is the best path of building trust over time. Eventually your team will develop a turn key process or system that can be fine tuned, and perfected.
(Not a Brother, Sister, Friend, Associate for the professional advice; unless they are experts in that particular field).
By far this is the way to success faster without the costly mistakes!
