The truth is every professional should strive to have all of their business be referral because the benefits of referral business are undeniable and extensive.

Seven Questions to Improve Your Business, Your Relationships, and Your Life
One of the most powerful tools we have as humans is our ability to ask questions. The more adept we are at asking them (and waiting for and listening to the answers), the more effective we will be.

Even when English is the common language in a cross cultural situation, this does not mean you should speak at normal speed. Slow down, speak clearly and ensure your pronunciation is intelligible.

Cross-party MPs issue joint warning of need to act to prevent the issue âsucking the life out of governmentâ
A powerful cross-party group of MPs today warns Theresa May that Brexit is âsucking the lifeâ out of her government â as cabinet sources admit that the crisis is forcing vital domestic business off the governmentâs timetable.
With the deadlock over Mayâs Brexit deal unresolved, and a key vote in parliament postponed until mid-January, the chairpersons of six all-party select committees have signed a statement saying long-drawn-out arguments over Brexit are having a âserious detrimental effectâ on wider domestic policy.
Talent of aspiring actor Mike Rogers spotted in footage from outside Hamleyâs toy store
An aspiring actor from South Africa has chanced upon a route into show business by dancing on the pavement outside Londonâs best-known toy shop.
Dressed as a friendly elf by the managers of Hamleyâs store in Regent Street, Mike Rogers improvised a routine to the piped sound of the seasonal pop classic I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus earlier this month.
Cabinet ministers renew pleas for fresh approach after damaging week for PM
Theresa May is being urged to give her MPs free rein to vote for a second referendum, with a new group of ministers poised to back another public ballot on Brexit.
Cabinet ministers are making fresh pleas for a new approach after the prime ministerâs bleakest week in office, which has left her authority seriously damaged and led some Tory MPs to fear it will become impossible for her to govern.
Nations agree on implementing 2015 Paris agreement, but put trickiest issues on back burner
The UN climate change talks ended late on Saturday night in Poland with a deal agreed on how to put the 2015 Paris agreement into action, but with other contentious problems left to be resolved next year.
Countries thrashed out the complex details of how to account for and record their greenhouse gas emissions, which will form the basis of a ârulebookâ on putting the Paris goals into action. But difficult questions such as how to scale up existing commitments on cutting emissions, in line with stark scientific advice, and how to provide finance for poor countries to do the same, were put off for future years.
Federal court in Virginia says officials were trusted to âspeak for the treesâ as it tosses out pipeline permit
A federal court in the US has cited the classic Dr Seuss childrenâs book The Lorax as it lambasted the US Forest Service for granting an energy company permission to build a natural gas pipeline across two national forests.
âWe trust the United States Forest Service to âspeak for the trees, for the trees have no tonguesâ,â the three-judge panel of the fourth US circuit court of appeals in Virginia wrote this week as it threw out the permit.
Most cities have not been designed with womenâs safety in mind but, from Egypt to Rwanda, new technology, design and education are reducing the threat of violence on the street
Sexual violence has rarely been so high on the news agenda. Since allegations against the movie producer Harvey Weinstein started to emerge in October last year, the global problem has finally become a mainstream issue. The United Nations has estimated that one in three women have experienced physical or sexual violence, with 120 million girls around the world having been forced into sex acts.
The repercussions go beyond the physical and psychological toll on individuals who have been attacked. Harassment and fear of violence can impede free movement of girls and women and stop them reaching their full potential, both socially and economically. âIf women feel afraid,â says Laura Somoggi, who manages the biennial Womanity award for the prevention of violence against women, âit could undermine their ability to work or go to school or university which affects their empowerment, their rights.â Fear of attack is a bar to women escaping poverty.
All 16,000 buses in the fast-growing Chinese megacity are now electric, and soon all 22,000 taxis will be too
You have to keep your eyes peeled for the bus at the station in Shenzhenâs Futian central business district these days. The diesel behemoths that once signalled their arrival with a piercing hiss, a rattle of engine and a plume of fumes are no more, replaced with the worldâs first and largest 100% electric bus fleet.
Shenzhen now has 16,000 electric buses in total and is noticeably quieter for it. âWe find that the buses are so quiet that people might not hear them coming,â says Joseph Ma, deputy general manager at Shenzhen Bus Group, the largest of the three main bus companies in the city. âIn fact, weâve received requests to add some artificial noise to the buses so that people can hear them. Weâre considering it.â
The bicycles are given to children in the Turkish border city of Kilis if they also maintain strong grades and promise to ride for an hour a day
Standing on the street in the centre of Kilis, a small Turkish city on the border with Syria, a constant stream of noisy motorcycles, scooters and cars zoom past. Itâs certainly not the most bicycle-friendly city, but local leaders are determined to change that with a new network of cycle lanes, and by giving away thousands of bikes to local children.
Since the outbreak of the Syrian civil war seven years ago, millions of Syrians have sought shelter in Turkey. While there are refugee camps lining the border, most refugees opt to live in cities such as Kilis.
The Avenue Salongoâs only hotel is the Metropole, where paunchy political fixers drink strong beer in a âsalon barâ furnished with much smoked glass and heavy fake leather furniture. Opposite is a row of diamond dealers, where local artisanal âdiggersâ sell stones scrabbled from red earth in makeshift mines among the verdant hills around the city. An understocked pharmacy, a restaurant selling grilled offal and the Couture de la Paix dress shop complete the scene.
US intervention comes as Canadian officials granted access in China to Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor
The US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, has said China should free two Canadian citizens who were detained this week following the arrest in Canada of a senior Huawei executive on a US extradition warrant.
Pompeoâs comments were the first by a senior US official on the Canadiansâ arrests, which the countryâs prime minister Justin Trudeau said could escalate a growing trade conflict between China and the United States.
A growing movement is demanding action to curb the soaring murder rate among young people in Fortaleza
Janio Heinrich used to promote peace on the streets of Grande Bom Jardim before he was shot dead two months ago. Now his face stares out from a large mural on a dusty street, a tribute to the 18-year-old whose crime was to enter the turf of a gang that does not dominate his area.
Residents are used to seeing memorials to their young people in this low-income part of Fortaleza; reaching adulthood here means surviving one of the deadliest districts of Brazilâs most murderous city for young people.
TGV trains will halve journey times from Casablanca to Tangier, but critics say flashy projects are no substitute for real reform
âMany well-known guests have stayed here,â says Jimmy, the proprietor of the gift shop in the Hotel Continental, a stately pre-colonial landmark overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar. He runs down the list: Edgar Degas, Winston Churchill, Paul Bowles. But that was a long time ago.
Today, once-glitzy Tangier isnât the destination it was half a century ago, when renowned artists and foreign spies haunted its bars and hotels. But the cityâs fortunes may soon shift. A new high-speed railway, the first in Africa, was inaugurated last month, linking the cities along Moroccoâs western edge. âIn two hours, it will take you from Casablanca to here,â says Jimmy â more than twice as fast as the current trains.
Beating Aids is Indiaâs greatest public health achievement. A new book says it wouldnât have happened without women
In 2002, a major report predicted an Aids catastrophe in India. The country would have 20-25m Aids cases by 2010. People were being infected at the rate of about 1,000 a day. Aids orphans numbered 2 million. This scourge would ravage families, society, and the economy. India was going to be the Aids capital of the world.
But 2010 came and went. India averted an Aids epidemic. That victory â Indiaâs biggest public health achievement â has remained uncelebrated. But a new book by one of the major HIV campaigners of that time finally honours the people he says were crucial in guiding India away from its seemingly inescapable destiny: the countryâs sex workers.
Geopolitical and economic rivalry between China and the US â not a breach of Trumpâs Iran sanctions â is whatâs really behind Meng Wanzhouâs arrest
Blame the British, as usual. In 1807, in the midst of a struggle with Napoleonic France, HMS Leopard, a Royal Navy ship of the line, attacked, boarded and captured an American frigate, USS Chesapeake, off Norfolk, Virginia. The British claimed their action was justified by the presence on the American ship of four English deserters, whom they arrested. But, for President Thomas Jefferson, it was an outrageous, illegal infringement of the sovereignty and independence of the infant republic, eventually leading to the 1812 war.
Itâs fair to say the Americans never forgot lessons drawn from the Chesapeake humiliation â and have been faithfully following Britainâs script ever since. As its power grew, the US, too, assumed the right to extend its national writ beyond its shores. One modern example is the way the US justice department ruthlessly pursues foreign nationals, such as the Scottish hacker Gary McKinnon, who are deemed to have broken US law. McKinnonâs extradition was ultimately blocked in 2012 by Britainâs then home secretary, Theresa May, after a public outcry.
From Kevin Hart to Lena Dunham to Christmas songs, sometimes itâs a good idea to look critically at the past. But you canât just ban everything
If 2016 was the year of the celebrity death, and 2017 the year of the celebrity sex scandal, then 2018 has been the year celebrities have been held to account for things they said in the past that no longer wash in these suddenly, if somewhat belatedly, enlightened times. Quite what to do next remains slightly TBD.
Many high-profile comedians have come under this kind of fire, from Sarah Silverman to Amy Schumer to Ricky Gervais, and last week it was the turn of Kevin Hart. He lasted precisely two seconds as the named host of the 2019 Oscars before his prior fondness for outrageously homophobic comedy, including a routine about how awful it would be to have a gay child, and his predilection for similarly hilarious witticisms on Twitter (including one tweet describing someone as looking like âa gay billboard for Aidsâ) were deemed, as the modern lingo goes, problematic.
That one of the worldâs biggest companies rides roughshod over a court order tells you all you need to know about the giants of Silicon Valley
Imagine if a media company told you the name of the man accused of killing Grace Millane. Imagine if, in defiance of a very clear court ruling of interim name suppression, that company told you his name in an email â spelling it out, even, in the subject header.
Unthinkable? Thatâs exactly what happened in the early hours of Tuesday.

âItâs almost like during the Soviet Union, when bands used to have their gigs in secretâ - these are the words of one half of experimental electronic duo Ic3peak. The group has been caught up in a crackdown on popular music acts across provincial Russia. So much so that Ic3peak have had six of their shows shut down in the last month. The provocative imagery in their videos may be what has spooked local officials
