Do you remember video post with the FUTURE concept? Can you recall, what was the 3rd element of it? OK, let me help you out; it was being: trustworthy.
Word with 4 letters (in my opinion), which might will be the main asset you can possess and leverage during your business and personal journey is
T R U S T
Why do I think so? Let me share, yet another story with you.
I am scribbling this post from hot Dubai, where I have stopped by on the way back home from Tehran. Guess what was the first thing I did, after touching down in Dubai? Yes, I went online, to catch up with Facebook and all of you.
Power of Word of Mouth in Action
Shortly after I have logged in, I have got Skype “hi message” from my (our) friend and hard core Super Cool Gang-er, Zunnurian. When he has realized, that my current location is Dubai, he said, that his good friend Amir is running a Webpreneur Universtiy there. I liked what I have heard about Amir, so I asked “Zun”, if he would mind to introduce me to Amir via email. Hi did so instantly! In 10 minutes I was on the phone talking live to Amir. And at the moment I am attending Amir’s awesome 2 days long event in Dubai Knowledge Village.
Trust is Emerging New Currency.
Do you know , how did I pay for being part of 550 USD worth gig? Nope, it was not a credit card, nor cash. It was other currency, new currency of today – it is called TRUST. Based on introduction from “Zun”, Amir did not need to do any deep due diligence on me anymore (because he knows and trusts “Zun”) and after checking my online presence and one phone call, I was simply invited by Amir to attend his event as guest.
Are you getting, what I mean?
I would like you to sit back over the weekend and reflect on your own professional and even personal relationships.
Do your friends/ colleagues care about you?
Would they recommend you to their valuable contacts?
When was the last time you have got introduced to someone for the work art you do?
Do you trust recommendations from your friends?
I cannot wait to hear your thoughts and stories.
