Here is one on my personal “to do” list next year:
Identify the most successful businesses in your community and find out who is second and third in charge there. Ask those people to lunch. Learn everything you can about their business. Don’t “sell” your practice or your services, but offer to help them in any way you can. Follow up with a personal thank-you note after the lunch.
You will start to see business from these people and their businesses before next year is out!
