The biggest power moves always involve making better connections.
In working with high level entrepreneurs and business women, Eleanor Beaton has discovered that the most significant moves that create the biggest gains and profits in any business is in making genuine connections with the people who matter in your niche. As people who travel the roads that are “higher level” than you begin to like, know, and trust you, they begin to see you as an asset they can introduce to their peers and mentors. That’s how you come to make the connections that are powerful for your business and how you can enter into partnerships and relationships that will last, gain traction, and build your profitability.

Ways to get into the circles you need to be in, without being a “gimme” person.
The formula Eleanor Beaton follows when she’s trying to gain the attention or help of a person who has the influence or resources she needs to move her business forward is very simple: Give, Give, Give, Ask. Too many entrepreneurs move to the “ask” way too soon. They become people who are always asking for help rather than adding genuine value to the people they want to get to know. It’s powerful when you do significant things (not costly, but thoughtful) that bring value, notice, and benefit to the people you want to attract. Generosity never fails if you do it well.
