James Taylor sang, "Shower the people you love with love"...why? Because
without love, relationships wither and die! The same thing applies your business.
To have a vital, growing business, we need to bring in that most essential human
element, love....
See the article below, and you'll see what I mean.

What’s Love Got to Do With It?

When it comes to the elements of business success, most people don’t think about love. When
I bring this topic up (cautiously, I might add), I can almost hear the Tina Turner song, “What’s
Love Got to Do With It?” playing in the background. But love is essential in business, as it is in
our personal lives. Yeah, I know that love is a "touchy-feely" word, but I’m going to stand my ground here and state
that without bringing love into your business, you’re sunk...or at the best, stuck. Stay with me
here, as I examine what is needed for a business to go beyond surviving-- to thriving.

You, your customers and clients, and your employees all need to the same things—to have your
needs taken care of, to be heard, to be respected, to feel appreciated, to be treated with integrity,
and to know that you are cared about. When you look at these elements, they’re parts of what
we call “Love”. Your employees and your clients are the “life blood” of your business, as it
were. Just like you, they don’t check who they are as human beings "at the door" when they are
in their professional environments. And as human beings, the deepest calling of our hearts is to
be loved.

The ugly truth is that, according to research by the Gallup organization and the US Labor
Bureau, the main reason that employees leave a job is because they don't feel appreciated, they
don’t feel valued...the same reason that many clients leave businesses.

So love your employees, love your clients, serve them by wanting for them what you want for
yourself, and you will find that your business AND your life will be much richer.
