I sent out 3 letters to long-term prospects outlining a specific rotation and quote for house cleaning.
My close rate was better than my short tenure at Dell. It was 33%. I was elated.
I think many times I fail to celebrate my victories. I didn’t do that here, and I am a better man for it.
I’m sitting here at the Green Hills Starbucks at the time of publishing this post, and I had intended to publish it last night. When you are a family man, and you choose to be self-employed, work many times waits for later. Such was the case last night. My office is also at home, and the responsibilities as a husband/daddy pull me away from the spreadsheets and writing.
I say all that to say I am happy this post idea was not forgotten.
I’m not only self-employed, but I am a sole proprietor, so everything rests on my shoulders. I should probably take better notes as an administrative assistant to myself!
In any case, congrats me on a good sales campaign, and celebrate with me the new year success of Tomlinson House Cleaning, LLC! Here’s to 2012!
