From my sample of everyone I’ve met throughout the first 6 weeks of this year, 100% of them have said that the majority of their business comes from word of mouth and recommendation.  I thought that was interesting as it reminded me of a quote I read:

“Yesterday’s brand was the sum of everything you said you did. Today’s brand is the sum of everything people say about you.”
