This week I had the great opportunity to meet will John Assaraf to discuss the Global Hug Tour, a great new cause inspired by Gail Goodwin from Inspire Me Today. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss how John and his company One Coach might play a role in the tour.
During our meeting we had a conversation about the why behind the Global Hug Tour. John was very passionate about having a strong why. If your why is strong enough then the how will become clear. The Global Hug Tour is a huge project with many moving parts which seem to be growing bigger with each day. The important part of this project is everything is coming together. Because the why is so strong it allows the how to truly present itself in the form of people stepping up to play a role, people buying hugs to support the tour, and both private and corporate sponsors taking a big interest in supporting the tour.
Bringing this back to follow up… How does having a great why help you in follow up? Follow up is one of those things we all know we should do! Having a great why will help you take the action steps like following up to achieve your desired goal. Your goal might be additional sales, revenue, customers, or referrals, whatever your goal is make sure you have a powerful why to keep you on track!
