One of the best ways to gain new and rewarding relationships, whether in business or your personal life, is to follow the advice of Mary Kay Ash, founder of the Mary Kay Cosmetics empire.  She said, “Look at everyone as if they have a sign around their neck saying, ‘Please make me feel important’.”  Can you imagine how you would feel if everyone you come in contact with made you feel important, validated, and that meeting you is a very significant part of their day?  You would want to see them again and again!  Let’s start a movement in our personal and professional lives to smile, engage eye contact and make them feel important!
