7 Things Needed for a Relationship to Start

Relationships start when the following exists:

  1. at least 2 people
  2. opportunity to connect
  3. curiosity
  4. open-mindedness
  5. willingness to listen & learn
  6. time to create an exchange
  7. follow up on deliberate next steps
Relationships are more than just a meeting - if you are building a relationship, you are removing the transactional focus from a conversation and really focusing on understanding and learning about the other person.

My motto "relationships first, business second".
