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”!!
See you on line,
