The Power of 250
Why is 250 such a powerful number? Because when you understand it, it can rock your world. The power of 250 can change your life, get you a job, transform your business and more.
In the book, ‘Go-Givers Sell More’ the authors describe what was coined by Joe Girard the “Law of 250″. I think if you put the power of 250 to work for you it can completely transform your life.
So what is the “law of 250″? They describe it in the book as the 250 people on average that every person has in their life who would come to their wedding or funeral. The 250 people that are in your circle of friends, family and within your influence. This gets really powerful when you realize that everyone in your circle has their own circle of 250 or so. This is how you build your network and can build momentum in your life or business.
Joe Girard who came up with the law said that if he treated one customer bad not only would he lose 1 sale but had the potential to lose 250 potential sales. So while this law can work against you if you have poor customer service this law can unlock huge potential for you and drastically change your life.
If you are in a business think about giving great value and building relationships with your customers and your inner circle. People love to share their experiences and if you provide great value and they like, know and trust you, you never know who will share your name with their circle.
When you understand how incredible you sphere of influence is and how to create value and build relationships you have immense power in your hands. I highly recommend reading ‘Go-Givers Sell More‘, I found their ideas to be completely transformational not only for business but life.
I would love to hear any stories you have about your life changing by understanding the power of your circle of influence. Leave a comment below and share it with me.
