Dr Ivan Meisner of bni fame has legions of followers believing that “givers gain” why? Because they do. A couple of interesting things happen when you give a referral.
The first one is that the recipient is likely to go out of their way to reciprocate. Meaning that they will become highly attuned to opportunities that would be a good fit for the person who gave them a referral. This is known as the law of reciprocity.
The second thing that happens is the universe bends to make sure that those who do good have good done unto them. If you give a referral to someone, it increases the odds that you will receive one from a totally different source. Some call this karma, universally speaking it is the law of generosity.
How do you make these two laws work for you? Simple, start giving referrals.
