A Chocolatier, a spartan, and a businessman all walk into a bar.

That’s how all great jokes start isn’t it? With 3 types of people doing something!  It’s the rule of 3, which is a staple in humor and joke telling, but when it comes to the rule of 3 in relationships, it’s often overlooked.

Relationships are what makes the world go round. In the service-based business world, we don’t buy from a company, we buy from people.  It’s relationships that drive those business buying decisions, and it’s why you need to consider spending time and connecting with all types of people.

I was recently at a networking event and I met some very interesting people.

  • I met Josh, who is a DJ and a custom clothier
  • I met George who had a startup in the drone world, sold it, now runs a digital marketing agency
  • I met Tiffany, a Realtor
  • I met Elizabeth, a Financial Advisor
  • I met Diane, a custom Jewelry designer and creator
  • I met Elizabeth, a Holistic Healthcare Practitioner
  • I met James, a mortgage planner

These are just a few folks I met at an event. I’ve met many other folks at events recently as well.  While I’m always focused on my allstars, meeting new ones, connecting with existing ones, I still really enjoy meeting all types of other people.why? Because connecting with all types of people increases referrals.

Here’s the full photo…that’s me in the middle incase you didn’t know!
