Ripple 5X

I have a challenge for you!  Ready?  Are you sure?  Well okay, here it is!

Use this week to make an impact on (5) people.  Pick any five people you want from your personal or professional network and do something for them before next Monday!

Like what you ask? Good question!

Here's a few of my suggestions:

  • Call them to let them know you were thinking about them just because
  • Ask them out to coffee, lunch or drinks to catch up
  • Open a door to a new customer or opportunity for them
  • Look at your network and who they need to know and make an introduction
  • Send an article in an area that you know that interests them
  • Buy them a The Ripple Effect because you know it will help them
  • Offer to watch their kids so they can get a night out on the town
  • Surprise them with a box of cupcakes and bottle of wine at the end of the work day
The ideas are limitless but the actions are very specific - both in terms of impact and the Ripples they create.

Come on people, spend a few minutes today thinking who you can make a positive impact on and what creative ways you can let them know how important they are to you.

Ripple On!!!
