I’m finding it hard to win trust from my suppliers and the industry. Help!

Hi Aunty B,

I am 22-years-old and I’m finding it hard to win trust from my suppliers and the industry. How can I prove to them that I am here for the long haul and they will only get good things doing business with me?

Want to impress

Dear Want to impress,

There are several things you must do. Firstly, always pay your bills on time. That’s simple isn’t it? But that act can go a long way to making you lots of friends as you become “that young bloke who always pays on time”.

Ditto service. Always make sure you deliver on time, turn up when you say you will, do what you have promised.

You also install this culture into your staff. Reputation takes awhile to build and once you have it, work hard to protect it.

Good luck!
Your Aunty B
