I don't care if you are new, old, washed up, fresh-born or born again as an entrepreneur - if you are not creating relationships to find your client base then you are working harder, not smarter.

I don't buy the idea that you have to pay money to find clients.

I don't buy the trend of spamming the crap out of inboxes or promo posts to get a tiny client base.

What I believe, religiously, is that our ability to build "real life" relationships in an unreal online world is a skill that will always be needed.

So here I share EXACTLY how I engage in FB Groups (my natural habitat) and how to start making meaningful foundations for any business that needs "know, like & trust" factor.
