The British poet George Herbert once wrote that “Good words are worth much and cost little.” The importance of clear communication is imperative to every level of success. If you are able to connect and maintain connection with people, your life is open to a world of possibilities that it wouldn’t have been otherwise. Especially in the world of business, the importance of keeping an open line of communication is what will set you apart from your competition.
The same is also true if you happen to be in the unfortunate position of owing money. Whether your debt is to a personal friend, bank or even the IRS, staying communicative will help you reduce the chances ruining you financial reputation and credit.
