Okay, I may be showing my age here, but if you’re over forty and listened to Rock music as a kid, chances are, you’ve heard of Suzi Quatro.
Suzi’s the quintessential “Rock Chick” and she’s still performing today at the ripe old age of 60.
Anyway, Suzi had a song called: Your mama won’t like me. The song went something like this:
So don’t take me home baby… cause your mama won’t like me.
Ah, classic Rock lyrics there.
I had the same trouble growing up myself.
A few of my friends’ parents didn’t like the idea of their precious children hanging around young Pete Godfrey… might lead them astray. But one thing always saved me… my manners.
I remember my mum telling me about a conversation she had with one of my mate’s mothers. Apparently she told mum: “Look, we all know Pete’s no angel, but his manners are exceptional. He’s welcomed at my place any time.”
So, what’s this reminiscing got to do with you and your business?
Well, just about everything.
That’s because good old fashioned manners seem to be a dying commodity in this high-tech 21st century. People are becoming rude, self-centred, hiding behind a computer spewing poison into the ether. It only takes a quick glance at Facebook to confirm how rude folks are behaving.
But get this: Even today, good manners can take you places. Good manners can build a BOOMING business, get you networking with high achievers, and gives you the moral foundation to build a successful life.
Manners are your key to wealth!
It’s a lesson I’ve been freely sharing with my kids over the years. But not lecturing them on it. I don’t sit them down on the bed, one hand on my hip and the other hand demonstrating the lesson with a pointed finger.
No, nothing like that.
Just in casual conversation.
Telling them stories.
Teaching them in a fun way.
I suggest if you have children you do the same; because I know I’ll be doing it with my kids.
And, I would love to hear your take on this.
See ya next week,
Pete Word Wizard Godfrey
