About Doug and Strick

Doug Sandler and Strickland Bonner have been friends for more than 20 years. They share a common passion for exemplary customer service, which begins with becoming fast friends with pretty much everyone they meet! Going above and beyond has always been their key to business success and both have spent their careers over-delivering in a world plagued by mediocre service.

 As podcasters and hosts of the wildly popular Nice Guys on Business Podcast, Doug and Strick have created and produced more than 800 episodes and in November of 2017 achieved one heck of a milestone, crossing over the 1 million downloads mark.

 As their client and their friend, I can honestly say, no one does relationship like these guys and I’m thrilled to have them as guests on my show! Buckle up – whenever you are with them, it’s bound to be one hell of a ride!

 In this episode Virginia and the Nice Guys discuss:

How creating authentic relationships creates the foundation for an amazing business!

 Key Takeaways:

  • Be an ACTUAL person, not a “persona”
  • Turn the people you meet into your FRIENDS!
  • Become an authentic conversationalist – listen and learn!
  • When you are trying to connect, see what you can do for others FIRST
  • You might not know how the “money thing” is going to work at first, so be open to exploring options with your prospects!
  • The loudest prospect is not always the best customer!
  • Resolve to solve problems in partnership
  • Create real intimacy
  • Use social media to enhance, not replace, real relationships
  • Remember: conversation = connection
