The Power of Relationships and Technology

Ep. 142 – The Power of Relationships and Technology with guest Shadgie Jean

May 14, 2024

What do a luxury sales rep, a fashion entrepreneur, a tech sales rep, a cold calling expert and a real estate investor have in common?

My special guest Shadgie Jean, Sage Investments, has learned that building strong relationships no matter what business you are in is the path to success.

Shadgie and I talk about:

  • How relationship building has been at the core of each of her jobs & businesses
  • Give yourself permission to out grow relationships
  • Relationships in business are like dating
  • The trust triangle
  • The importance of having a CRM that you’re comfortable using
  • Networking both vertically and horizontally
  • The fortune is in the follow up

Shadgie mentions the book … How to be a Power Connector (PB): The 5+50+100 Rule for Turning Your Business Network Into Profits by Judy Robinett


Shadgie Jean boasts 18+ years of experience in luxury sales where she refined her negotiation and relationship building skills.  She is also passionate about empowering women.  Her past experiences have influenced her approach as a real estate investor, allowing her to leverage her well-honed networking skills to forge strong partnerships with both passion and active investors.

Connect with her here:


  1. Plan how you will build relationships
  2. Give yourself permission to build new and let go of the current
  3. Use a CRM to track your relationships
  4. Follow up until they say no
