Yesterday’s post was more of a brand for Tomlinson Cleaning than I thought. Or maybe it was a theme. Protocol, as mentioned no doubt, but obviously my Wall Street Journal writing courses haven’t paid off. I don’t even know if there is such a thing. Any who.
Second verse same as the first puttin out some fires, not a whole lot worse.
I set up two payments to be billed, and finally I get to to my customer’s house.
It was a productive day, and as luck would have it I even got to read a little bit of Acuff’s Start with a venti pumpkin spiced latte.
Here are some observations. Breath deeply, and if your paths cross with a customer don’t let the anxiety of the day interfere with quality conversation. You aren’t just selling a product or service. You’re selling yourself as well. That’s very important, and if you don’t have to learn it from experience the better. Learn it from a blog.
Be sincere, and don’t always be thinking of what you’re going to say next. Listen. Those that listen close more sales.
This is all easier said than done especially if you have loved ones in the hospital, a partner expecting or a mountain of debt you are consumed with, but do not underestimate the power of single still moment and what it can do for your psyche, nerves and digestive tract.
Hopefully your attacks won’t be as severe as mine because this morning I had to pop a chill pill. In the same breath I thanked God for modern medicine.
Each one of us gets there differently, but strive to get there for yourself and those you love.
