Terrific post! The beauty about strong relationships is that they take more time than money or other resources. And what do we have during tough economic times: more time than money!

Nice post. Love the "right arm" analogy. Just sent link to my entire Acct Service staff and senior managers. Well said and given current economy -- great advice. Thanks for sharing.

Great post, Katie.

We often joke about keeping score in our personal relationships (husband cleaned the kitchen w/o being asked, 20 points), yet fail to think about how trust, satisfaction and mutual exchange factor into business relationships.

Followed you from Twitter - keep up the great posts!
