Today, it's not just about selling a product or service; it’s about bonding, about building a rapport. The majority of the world wants to know they can share their needs with someone who will understand, respond and react. Because of the events surrounding September 11th, 2001 many are dazed and confused. Very little is normal, life is unpredictable - with unpredictability comes uncertainty, and with uncertainty comes anxiety. Donna Messer can help you understand and deal with what is now becoming the way of building business for the future. According to statistics there is a national affliction: it’s called FUD –– Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt. No one truly knows what’s going on anymore. We’re living in uncertain times. Things that were previously totally unimaginable are now commonplace. We need to think laterally, and be creative when it comes to surviving and thriving in this new marketplace. People don’t like to be sold, they love to tell you what they want to buy. And they buy from people they like or are like them. By establishing a rapport, a common interest, people become confident and when that confidence is returned - they buy, they hire, they sell and they respond in a way that makes both sides winners. If a corporation can develop the rapport, build the relationship - find the common denominator, they stand a greater chance of getting their products and services accepted, and people buy from people who are like themselves. "Donna Messer is without a doubt Canada's leading expert in networking. She has spent years helping individuals and businesses learn how to grow their business by networking. One year after I heard Donna speak I had tripled my income, found three large corporate sponsors for my book, landed a national publisher and established myself in half the time it would have taken me with my normal approach." -- Hollee Kew, Author "Barefoot in the Grass"
