Be Thankful for Your Customers

Thankful to Be in Business

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a good holiday.

I was able to spend the long weekend visiting my new grandson and I was able to take the time to do some thinking about what I am thankful for. So what does that have to do with your and my businesses? Well, I see it like this.

The last couple months I have been thankful for the business that I have been getting. We all know that those in our field have not been getting the traffic that they need. I was talking to a supplier the other day who said that 20 customers that he had have folded up and given up.

I am thankful that I was not one of them. Having a thankful frame of mind can help you when dealing with you customers. Remember that everyone who does business with you is an asset. That relationship needs to looked after and nurtured. Being thankful is an important part of any relationship.

I once heard that a customer is worth $10,000. I don’t know if that’s true. But, if so, we need to treat them like they are $10,000 clients. I am Thankful for those kind of clients and any kind of clients.

I hope we all manage to keep a thankful attitude all year long.

The Story of You

It’s Now the 4th Quarter of the year. It’s time to ask how the year is going.  So how is it?

Are you going to have a Christmas this year?

It’s time to put together your 90-day plan, so you can close out this year with a bang.  Remember, if you fail to plan, the year will be a bust.


Here are some ideas for you 90-Day Plan

  1. Set goals…smart goals.
  2. Come up with strategies to help you achieve your goals.
  3. Map out your strategies with step-by-step actions that will help you achieve you goals. Track your success or failures.
  4. Test and Measure.
  5. Reset your course as often as necessary.
  6. Make changes if you need to.
  7. Establish a relationship with a mentor or peer to report to…someone who can hold you accountable. This is critical.

Not long ago, I heard that our success is like a book that needs to be written and only we can write the chapters. The best part is that we also get to write the ending.
