I woke up this morning, a brisk morning for mid-October, and began my usual routine. I went in to get my daughter up and ready and the first thing she says to me is, "Where's Mommy? I want Mommy!" in a cute 2.5 year old voice. Now this isn't the first time she's said this to me, in fact this has been going on for about 2 months. However, the first time I heard it, the tenth time I heard it and even today, I think...when is she going to say, "Good Morning DADDY!" I want her to say my name because it will make me feel good or special.
So I'm not getting all wishy-washy here, I don't feel that my 2.5 year old daughter has the psychological edge on me quite yet, but it made me remember something that's particularly important when it comes to being a sales person, a real estate agent and a Dad. Everyone wants to feel special.
My business has been up and down like every-ones, but as I review my clients and my big successes, I realize that I did the best job when I made those clients feel like they were my special client. I think even with the swirling markets, stock market charts looking like PONG, and the housing market faltering, if you continue to make people feel special, your business will continue. Not matter how good or bad the economy people remember good service.
With that said, "GOOD MORNING ACTIVE RAIN!" SMILE :)
