    Kev…this is mostly what my business has been built on…relationships. God gives us the connections, we further connection into business and business/personal relationships. Many GREAT books on this…of course, John Maxwell’s books on being a People Person (2 or 3 of them) and a GREAT book by Bob Burg – “Endless Referrals” is based on this we give to people and we will reap what we sow..as we keep giving, connections will happen. From my limited understanding of the East – and what this article is seeminly saying is that we will need to pray for connections for you guys!
