People who are our family members, relatives, friends, business associates, clients, customers, suppliers and just people who can be called our stakeholders. We forget that gadgets and social media ought to be enhancements and not replacements or even detractors where our relationships are concerned.
Make a decision to be a Special Delivery person today. Instead of texting, meet in person or at least call. Send a handwritten letter instead of an email. Stop chasing all the hype about being number one in search engines, using magical keywords, elevator pitches, growing rich in your niche and all that. Be a person. And remind another person that he or she is one, too!
