Make no mistake, passionate commitment is very persuasive. When you’re passionate, your potential clients catch your spirit. They want to participate with you and soak up some of that energy. They’ll start expecting success, because you’re living it.

For my retail liquor business, the passionate core is “Drink what you like!” For my internet/marketing side, the core is “Share your unique difference, and do it simply.” Both of these are closely related to Middleton’s cause of passionate core.

Sharing that is an integral part of succeeding.
