About Small Pond
Small Pond Enterprises, LLC is a consulting company and educational resource for solopreneurs, entrepreneurs, and intrapreneurs who want to accelerate the success of their business. We help our clients to do that through relationship strategy.
We believe that success for those who are starting or running a small business hinges on the ability to identify reliable referral partners, be a resource for existing clients, and connect across industries. We teach skills such as crafting effective introductions, structuring win-win partnerships, evaluating and tracking existing relationships, and activating the law of weak ties.
The Small Pond Philosophy
At Small Pond Enterprises, LLC we believe that the keys to all of the doors that you need opened are in other people’s pockets. We are all about helping you develop the kinds of relationships that will motivate people to hand you those keys.
We believe that there is no competition, only specialization. As a result of that belief, the events, classes, and conferences that we develop are focused on teaching about connection and collaboration.
No matter who is across the table, no matter what you might want or need from them, it is important to remember that we are all people first. Our relationship strategy hinges on treating people like people.
We encourage our clients and followers, no matter what your business or level of success is, to take the attitude of being “the CEO of you.” Whether you are a freelance artist, a startup founder, or the regional sales manager for a larger company, your business or career can always benefit from building powerful, meaningful relationships and from helping those around you to succeed.
If any of this resonates with you, we’d love to hear from you. We love meeting new people and finding opportunities for collaboration with people who are changing the world.
What is relationship strategy?
Relationship strategy involves examining your existing relationships and exploring which of those relationships are helping you and which are holding you back.
Your relationship strategy is a plan you can implement for seeking and finding connections with influencers, decision-makers, referral partners, and advocates for your work.
Relationship strategy is a key part of business development. Thousands of dollars are left on the table every day due to a lack of understanding your network and what your network values. A good relationship strategy addresses this and will help you to focus your efforts so that you are investing your time in the right places and with the best people.
