I know what you're thinking and you're wrong! I'm not trying to find you a date...that would be weird.
It came to me last night as I was looking for a medical resource for an acquaintance that I always have tried to match people up with their needs. It seems like I've done this forever - personally and professionally.
Whenever possible, I try to use the products and services of those I know and care about but when that's not possible for whatever reason, I try to match people up with the services they need. There's something great about knowing someone can benefit from someone or something I know.
It costs nothing to refer knowledge. While times may be tough for many of us right now and we may not be able to buy products, we can certainly refer. That is truly a great gift we can give.
