GERILYN’S ADVICE:  “Ask for the business. I think we have to be very intentional about that this is why we’re here, we want this partnership. But that also, it should be a partnership. In any engagement, it’s not just we’re going to give and do and give and do. There should be a little bit of the what’s in it for us? As for the business, understand that the customer understands you’re committed and this is what you want, but that it is a two-way street, a strategic partnership, and there should also be some win in it just beyond that transaction for you and your company. When there’s skin in the game on both sides, it changes the dynamics of the relationship I think in a positive way, that is meaningful.”
