got a voicemail from a colleague who had just received a promotional e-mail from me.


He said, “Hey, just got your e-mail. Just wanted you to know I was thinking about you. Give me a call so we can catch up.”

Did it make me happy to know someone was thinking about me? You bet.

Did it make me feel more connected to him? You bet again.

You don’t need a strategy or even an agenda to keep your relationships fresh. Just stay in touch – people are always glad to hear from you (yes, I do mean you).
