Week 26 – I hope to have planted a Forest!

Good morning Readers and welcome!

This week I want to tell you about how persistence mentioned in Week 10’s blog post paid off.   Here is a blow by blow account!

In August last year I sent out letters of introduction.  I received a reply from one of the recipients to thank me.  I followed up with an email to ask if they would mind being on my mailing list to receive occasional newsletters.  They replied that they didn’t mind.  I emailed back to thank them.  I sent out Christmas greetings and at Easter I sent out a newsletter.  Well I have just received and completed my first chunk of work that the client is happy with!

Hopefully this is the start of a good working relationship.   This client will not be a “regular” as in once or twice a week at this stage, but all little bits help and as their confidence in my business grows, so will the workload.

How exciting to plant a seed and watch a seedling pop out and then after watering it, watch it grow into a beautiful plant or tree.  In this case I hope I have planted a forest!!!

Do I love my business?  The answer has to be “yes”!!

Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth, We are happy when we are growing.
William Butler Yeats

See you on line,
Lynne
