Fortunately, this does not have to happen a lot. But as small business owners, we need to realize and accommodate the fact that sometimes things don’t always go our way with a client relationship. It is something that a lot of small business owners struggle handling.
Way back in the ‘good old days’, banks used to try really hard to get new customers.
They also seemed to think that they should treat their current customers differently than the new customers they were trying to woo. What they didn’t seem to realize was, their current customers were the ones who allowed them the budget to try to attract the new customers.
Have you ever heard of the cliché, “Penny wise, pound foolish” ?
I lost my mum to cancer at the young age of 65 and she lost her mum to the same cancer at age 65.
