Rich Habits Fact of the Day

How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie, is perhaps the best self-help book ever written on growing strong, valuable relationships in life.

Rich Habits Lesson of the Day

80% of the wealthy use four strategies to grow and strengthen their relationships. These four strategies are:

#1    Hello Call

#2    Happy Birthday Call

#3    Life Event Call and

#4    Networking/Volunteering

The Hello Call is used primarily to gather information on each contact.

The Happy Birthday Call keeps your relationships on life support. At least once a year you are forced to reach out to your contacts to wish them a happy birthday. About 5-10% of these contacts will reciprocate and call you on your birthday, taking your relationship off life support.

The Life Event Call is the most powerful strategy because it puts your relationships on steroids. This is a call you make to acknowledge some life event: birth, death, engagement, marriage, health issue etc

Networking & Volunteering allows you to meet new people and offers the opportunity to showcase your skills in a safe, friendly and stress-free environment.
