Foundations and Framing

“Every uncomfortable transaction has a frame. The question is who sets it. Allowing others to set the frame is relying on luck.” ~Bob Burg, Adversaries into Allies

Not only “uncomfortable transactions” but any transaction would have a frame AND a foundation. Relationships and reputation are the foundation and connections are the frame. Both foundation setting and frame building can take a long time and unless you’ve built with care and quality a sudden storm could do damage.

Choose wisely the connections you make then cherish and protect the relationships that come from them and your foundation will be strong enough to rebuild after a storm and your reputation will sustain your progress.
