Mastering all of these attributes is no easy task. It takes a great deal of work and patience. Creating a good relationship does not happen overnight. It takes time and proven reliability. You will have to prove yourself and your worth to your customer. To do this you have to execute on requests, provide results, and demonstrate a working knowledge of their business. You will have to show an honest desire to see them succeed while providing solutions that enable their success. You cannot always do everything your customer asks because you also have to ensure your own companies success.

No customer means no paycheck and thus no job. 4. Your co-workers are your customer too 5. Your company and your companys customers are your customers 6.
