In Dale Carnegie’s book How to Win Friends and Influence People, Dale achieves his goal of ways in handling people, make people like you, how to have people agree with you, and be a leader.

He could be smiling or frowning. It is the same when you talk about a poor person, except in your mind he is probably frowning. Every day you should try to smile gladly to everyone. If you cannot seem to smile, think of happy thoughts and force yourself to smile. Another way to make people like you is by talking about what other people are interested in.

So if you want someone to help your business then you need to start to talk about the other person’s interests first.
