When you arrive at a client meeting at a local brewery, and the first thing he says is “God is good!”, you know it will be a good meeting.
A chance meeting at a gas station introduces him to a resource who can help him with his backlog of work and grow his business. A mutually beneficial collaboration.
Giving God thanks for that chance meeting is the first step. Working through the implications of that potential opportunity is a great chance for a coach to brainstorm with the business owner and slide in some good advice. If you know where you are going, the future is less scary.
