I love Fridays. (stating the obvious)
Tomorrow going to be especially great though. I have a meeting with Copy Express about getting them higher up on some Google searches.
These guys have been nothing but fun to do business with and I’m proud to say that we put out a sick looking site for them. What’s even better is that they pass along the good news when it comes in. Every time they have got a compliment on their site they pass it along. It doesn’t sound like much, but who doesn’t like being told they have done a good job.
For lunch I am meeting with Jonathan Wilk at Floor Coverings International. He was kind enough to have me talk to his BOAB group the other day. He also started the fire under me to have the weekly workshops.
He also originally told me I was cocky, arrogant and that I talked too fast. Frankly, I appreciated him shooting me right between the eyes from the start of our relationship. He was candid and told me what he thought of me. I appreciate a man who speaks what he thinks, we grew because all the cards were on the table. But Browns fans stick together
So the point is this… Tomorrow will be a gratifying experience. It isn’t about the money. It is about people buying Green Thumb. They are buying the work we have put in. They are willing to listen because we have provided value to them.
These guys don’t know the ins and outs of search. Nope, but they know that they are going to be taken care of.
So am I asking these guys for more business, yes. But here is what I learned from Harvey Mackay. (Killer book called, "How to swim with the Sharks without being eaten alive.") You don’t do it for the money, you do it for the satisfaction that you get from helping someone….money is just a bi product.
It’s days like this where a guy like me get the most fulfillment. I could make more money working for the man. (for now) But I get a greater reward then money, an inner strength, shooting for my goal to be loved by all.
