Bernice Aikins has developed prospects into clients

She worked consistently to maintain effective relationships with them

On a beautiful late summer afternoon, fifteen years ago, two young women graduated from the same university. These two young women are very much alike as students both had very good grades; both had a pleasant personality and were well-mannered. As it is with young university graduates both were filled with ambitious dreams and both looked forward to a bright future.

Not too long ago, these two women returned to the university where they graduated from for their 15th reunion. They were still very much alike both were happily married. Both had four children. And both as it is, had set up their own businesses.

But there was a difference. One of the young women had few client the other was well patronized.
