At the end of the day this business is about relationships. The more relationships the better. The bigger the better. No matter what your size or scope—you can’t have too many relationships. The secret sauce behind the best relationships combines the best client service with the best business development skills. You need the business development skills to ensure you get all the business superior client service can offer.
