Who REALLY has your back? The question is of obvious importance but most of us have no clue as to the answer.
Recently I picked up a book, by Keith Ferrazzi, with the name, Who’s Got Your Back. The book discusses the importance of finding and developing deep relationships with an “inner circle” of friends and associates who have your best interest at heart, will be candid with you, and who will help you with your real estate business and personal growth.
As I was reading through I realized that I have done this in my life without the formal attempt but that I could carry this advantage much further if I made it a conscious priority in my life. I feel like this may be the best book I read all year and will contribute to my future growth in exponential ways. So, I felt like I should share this with the HomeGain real estate community.
One of the statements in the book that really struck me was that even though we are more connected than ever through our cell phones and the internet we seem to be more alone.
The book stated that in 1985 the average American had 3 people to whom they could confide matters but by 2006 that number had dropped to 2 and that 25% of Americans admitted that they had no confidants at all.
