Hope you are doing good this Sunday evening! I spend most of my day with my family celebrating my twin’s birthday!

And I wanted to do a quick video on something that’s so important that without this factor, it’s going to be close to impossible to make money or live your dreams.

I’ve been talking about MONEY all week, and I wanted touch on one of the most important factor that contributes to your financial success.

Your relationships and connections with people.

Without people there is no business. It doesn’t matter if you are selling your own products, or networking for another company.

Business is people and without people there is no business.

Connecting with people goes far beyond just saying hi to them on social media, and pushing your product on them.

We all get annoyed when that happens.

Relationships takes time. You can’t rush it.

You cannot have one or two conversations with someone and call it a solid good relationship.

It takes many many small and honest interactions to build that trust and loyalty.

Good relationships eases our pain and our suffering and it makes sense to have good relationships in business.

But you know what?

A study out there shows that human beings can only manage 150 good relationships in his or her life.

That’s a lot, but it’s enough to achieve anything you want in life… and ease each other’s pain.

We can only handle 150 close relationships, maximum, because of our time and memory shortage…

We don’t have the time to give to more than 150, and we don’t have the memory to remember more than a 150 names.

Our goal is to build that relationship, know them well enough to, learn some of their stories and the life that they are living.

A lot of people say that you are the sum total of the 5 people that you hang around with…and they often say that they better be all successful people.

I don’t subscribe to that… I think you should have relationships with people from different walks of life.

That way we don’t get polarized to one group of people… only the successful ones, or only the unfortunate ones..

I think we should have close relationship with all kinds of people… we become a well rounded human being that way.

So, relationship first before money…

Business is trading….. goods, products, services… etc.

Who are we gonna trade with? PEOPLE.. obviously.

And People are not dollar signs… When we give value to people, they pay back in dollars.

So relationship first… before money.

That’s my message today.

Have a great week ahead!
