Client relations and communication are my two most important priorities. I constantly remind myself to really listen to my clients and show a sincere interest in what they need. That relationship is not going to build over one day, it takes patience and persistence over a long period of time. I don’t get discouraged because I know that an opportunity to do business with that client may not happen today or tomorrow, but it will come back around eventually.
