I was on a training call recently and we were talking about referrals. More specifically, asking for referrals. Now I don’t know about you but I not only love giving referrals…I love receiving them too. It takes the guess work out of things when someone gives you a good referral for a product or service that you have. As a mompreneur, who has the time to find every thing we need on our own?
When you receive good service don’t you want to share it? Don’t you want to do business with people who do business with you? Cassie Eberhart talked about this very fact recently with me in Dallas. WAHM’s and Mompreneurs are naturally gifted connectors and we need to use that to our advantage. Check out what my fellow blogger and WAHM, Heather Stephens has to say on that subject.
I think that women naturally love to give referrals but why is it we seem to be timid about asking for a referral when it’s for our business? Especially when asking from people or places where we spend money? I have a little more to say in the following video.
Starting today I’m challenging my WAHM’s and Mompreneurs to make it your business to ask for referral from anyone that you pay for a service. I don’t care who it is. Trust me, they wouldn’t hesitate for a minute to ask you if it could help them grow their business and neither should you. Remember if you never ask the question, the answer is always NO 😉
