Genesis 41: 1 - 49
Joseph had a gift or call it a skill.
He could interpret dreams. He had met Pharaoh’s head cup bearer in Jail. The head cup bearer and the head baker spent time with Joseph in jail. They both had dreams in Jail and needed someone to help interpret their dreams. Joseph interpreted their dreams accurately. Now Pharaoh has the same problem, non of his staff can help him. The head cup bearer now remembers Joseph and testifies of his experience with Joseph. Notice that he emphasized that things turned out just as Joseph had interpreted. (Genesis 41 : 12-13) Thereby highlighting competency and integrity. After hearing of the pleasant experience that the head cup bearer shared, he immediately sent for Joseph to come deliver the same service that he offered to the cup bearer. Joseph was brought before the king and he delivered beyond expectation to the point that the King made him ruler of Egypt. Learnings:
Joseph recognized his gift, skill or competitive advantage.
Joseph definitely had good interpersonal skill or he wouldn’t have had interactions with the head cup bearer to the point that he had the opportunity of interpreting his dream for him
He offered his service at no cost to the head cup bearer. Sometimes, this is what entrepreneurs have to do to demonstrate their capacity to deliver. Wet the customer’s appetite!
He provided outstanding service. His interpretation of the dream was precise.
Don’t be shy to ask for a referral : Joseph anticipated that his services could be needed in the palace hence the reason he had asked the cup bearer to refer him to the King (Genesis 40:14) but two years went by before the cup bearer remembered to mention Joseph to the king. He essentially asked for a referral.
When you deliver such great service as Joseph did, you cannot be forgotten by your clients. Its only a matter of time, those satisfied customers will be sending you new clients. #successstory #skill #empowerment #successfulwomen #referrals #successquotes #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlife #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #businesssuccess #god #wisdomforlife #businesstips #business101
