    Steve, you continue to top yourself, don’t you, my friend? While there are no 100% fixes to the woes of today’s economic climate, ANY business owner or leader would be very well served to pay heed to what you have put together here. It is impossible to overemphasize the value of growing your business relationship (and subsequently your revenue $$$) with existing customers.

    I know — way beyond any doubt — the value of simply doing a good job for a client then investing a whopping fifty cents or so in a “thank you” card with a couple of b-cards enclosed, along with the time to hand write a personal note to honestly thank the client.

    There’s no shame or pain in asking an existing client for more work and business — unless, of course, the work you did for them sucked.
