Yes, I totally agree! My best relationship-building resource is me - I love being with my sphere and building our relationships over time.

I stay in contact and meet with my SOI regularly, often at my home or volunteering for our favorite charities.

Life does! I use my instincts, and tailor approach to each individual. I really am divinely guided in this respect. (I think we all are if we acknowledge it.)
To be a little less airy airy-fairy, I do what I say I'm going to do when I say I'm going to do it, show up on time, communicate clearly, smile and laugh while I'm doing what needs to be done.
Some relationships require more care and feeding than others. You also have to use good common sense in choosing which ones you want to be in in the first place.

"Most enjoyable resource" and "DNA relationships"... I'm sure some would say Tinder.

 

My non-familial relationships are from past coworkers, past clients and those I volunteer with.

My best relationship is with my wife, no dna relationship, but we did mix some to produce a bunch of kids.

For business relationships, it is a combination of factors with plenty of time spend developing and growing those relationships.

Absolutely - no matter what, the relationship is either grease or friction on a deal.  Good ones lubricate and make for smooth sailing, bad ones can cause a deal to come to a screeching halt.  Best way to keep them good is stay in contact and provide value when you do.
