Relationships rule: Although there are many ways to get a planner to take notice of you, I want to focus on only one and the most important which are relationships. If you can honestly build and nurture your relationships with planners then your way ahead of the pack and I mean nurture in a good way, there is no such thing as phony relationship building (not that I know of anyway).
