Are You Fascinated By Your Clients?

From Tim Sanders “The Likeability Factor.” In it, he paraphrases a line from Dale Carnegie’s “How To Make Friends and Influence People“…

“You will win more friends in the next 2 months developing a sincere interest in 2 people than you will ever win in the next 2 years trying to get 2 people interested in you.”

My version…

“You will win more new clients in the next 2 months developing a sincere interest in 2 prospects than you will ever win in the next 2 years trying to get 2 prospects interested in you.”

Q: What if you approached (and targeted) each prospect because you were truly interested and fascinated by their business and/or the type of people they are?

How would that change your entire sales and marketing approach?

Are you fascinated by your clients and their business? If not, why not?
