So when an important client informed me that he was flying his wife in for the weekend after a few days of meetings, my co-workers and I went to work on planning a day of wine tasting and making lists of recommended sites for the balance of their stay.
I work with a great group of folks and many are now dear friends. We cover each other's backs and have fun along way. My clients just happened to be great people, too. As the wine and conversation flowed, we all realized that our client/vendor relationship had morphed into friendship.
At the end of the day, people do business with people.
And, naturally, people prefer to do business with people they like.
Though this song is about drowning your broken heart in glasses of red wine, it remains one of my favorite summer songs. It's also great for workout cool downs.
"Red, red, wiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnneeee....."
What memories does this song bring to your mind? Let me know - leave a comment below.
