Good Business

February 25, 2011

I received this lovely message today from a relatively new friend whose business I support:

“I’m busy responding to emails and dealing with remarkably less garbage than usual … and it got me to thinking about people I like. You’re cool because you do what you say and you follow up with things. You have no idea how refreshing it is when someone does that.

I just wanted to send a note. Positive feedback FTW.”

I began supporting his modest start-up because he had a solid, focused idea and buckets of enthusiasm.

I loosened up my traditionally padlocked purse strings because I genuinely like his product.

I was already a fan and a customer. This note elevated my commitment to his work.

Every dollar we spend is an investment in someone’s work. And starting a business is cultivating relationships, because initially we work with those we like.  Of course, then it’s up to them to keep us coming back for more.

That’s just good business.
