Do You Love Your Vendors?

June 24, 2014

When you run a small business, you need partners you can count on. That means customers that you can trust and who trust you. It requires employees that are pulling in the same direction. And it means vendors that you are truly jazzed to represent.

At Leading Results, I’ve gotta say, we do love our primary vendors – we have only two – but we are passionate supporters of them, because they are there for us and help us to be our best.

No, of course not, no one does. But the thing about John and his team, and the network as a whole, is that they care. The care passionately about the consultants and the clients and making a difference in the success of the businesses that we collectively touch.

A great company is like a great stage actor in that they both succeed by transferring energy from themselves to their audience. Every interaction I have with the team at Hubspot reminds me of this. I talked to 3 different teams and different individuals at Hubspot today and ended each call more energized than when I began.

That makes me love our vendors because I have a better day because of my interactions with them. So what about you? Who do you work with that you would rave positive about?
