The quotes keep coming!

The fact that our “Best Ever” quotes series has just come to an end doesn't mean you won't find any more inspirational quotes on this blog. It just means you don't have to wait till Monday for them!

So here’s a great quote from Donald A. Connelly, a U.S. motivational speaker and marketing consultant to the retail brokerage industry. He’s been a Wall Street broker, financial planner, branch manager, wholesaler, national sales manager and senior marketing officer.

This quote should be printed out and hung on the office walls of all growth-oriented entrepreneurs:

"The more successful we become, the further we get away from the basics that made us successful in the first place. In the final analysis, it all comes down to remembering the basics and keeping the focus on your clients' needs."

Connelly is well known for simplifying business concepts. It doesn't get any simpler than this.

"Connelly is well known for simplifying business concepts." I don't think this quote qualifies. I would suggest that in the final analysis, it all comes down to creating customer wants (no just understanding their needs). The way to do that, is to be customer oriented or "client-oriented".
