I was just listening to my moms talk the other day about loyalty and trust, and that got me to thinking. Do I have loyalty? Have I built up a trust factor with all those in my life? Do they know they can count on me to always have their back and stand beside them even if it is not always the best thing for me?
And if so, can I count on the same thing from them?
Have I taken the time to show them that I am thankful to them for standing with me and allowing me to stand with them? After a little pondering on this thought, (of course after my nap, because you know I always think better on a rested brain) I came to the conclusion that I do have those loyalty relationships with my family. As a token of my appreciation, I even took one of my many bones and gave it to my sister (now just so you know this was a big deal for me). And I gave extra snuggles to my humans.
Now take a second a think, do you have this in your life or business? And if so, how do you show those people that you appreciate them. In life it is the little gestures that mean the most. I am not saying give up your bones, but I am sure you can think of something.
Now in your business there are many ways to show your gratitude for the loyalty your clients or customers show you, take the Hilton for instance they reward you with points that you can use for free stays. In today’s world, there are many companies that know the importance of showing your gratitude for loyalty offer something like this to their customers.
Even my moms do this. They show their loyal clients the appreciation for the continued working relationship and loyalty but giving a yearly credit of free hours of work. Now they do this on a sliding type scale to be fair. The longer the client has been with them, the more free hours they receive.
Now this may not be right for you or your business, but you should think about showing your loyal clients some love. And it should go without saying that this should be practiced in your personal life.
I think it is time for me to get my afternoon brushing, this is one way my moms show that they are grateful for my love and loyalty to them.
Till next week. Emmy
