As Valentine’s Day quickly approaches our minds are focused on our personal lives and what we can do for the person that complements our lives or how we can find our other half before the big day! This special time of year has most people thinking back over their relationships, appreciating the connections that they have developed, and looking forward to how they will further develop as a team over the next year or lifetime. Though Valentine’s Day is marketed and genuinely interpreted as a day to focus on the intimate and personal relationships in our lives, I would like to digress to another aspect of our lives. Have you been focusing on finding a perfect match for your business?
Let me start off by saying that finding a new business relationship does not take priority over appreciating your significant other and making dinner reservations or finding a special recipe to make for your special someone! My goal is to help open your eyes to the possibility that a perfect business match may be right around the corner and you haven’t opened your mind to the possibility yet. There is so much going on all around you, but have you opened yourself to the idea of something new?
I have attended a multitude of networking events and each time, I walk in with the idea that I going to happen to find the most incredible person that changes the course of my day to day business operations. Walking out of the event, I look at the stack of business cards that I have accumulated and find myself wondering “Could this be a possible match?” Sure, I spoke with someone affiliated with the company and something that they said peeked my interest, but what else do I know about them? Those after event thoughts are the ones that make me put my guard up or lose interest in the idea of furthering a business relationships (much like a first date).
I would like to extend the offer to let you know that your CMC Office Property Managers are a valuable resource in connecting you and helping you take your business to the next level! By working with business owners on a daily basis, we have a mental rolodex of companies and how they operate. I have spent a lot of time learning about the operations of businesses in my office complex and can honestly say that this is the best and most rewarding part of my position!
Imagine the connections that can arise, simply by connecting with other Tenants in your office building. Your corporate legal counsel, tax advisor, website designer, and marketing specialist could all be within the same building as your office! If that is not convenient and efficient, I don’t know what is!
If you are interested in taking your business to the next level, connect with your Property Manager and neighbors and see what the amazing connection of small businesses can achieve!
