Watch out for dog pills…
I just received a call this morning from a long-time and great (and good looking, kind, brilliant, yadda, yadda, yadda) client, Ben Templeton.
Ben says, “Hey Kyle – want to hear a story that has a lesson for your personal life AND business life?”
Kyle: “Of course, those are my favorite ones!”
Ben: “So I got up a little late this morningI was cuddling in bed with our two boys and chatting and hanging out with them.
Got up, jumped in the shower – rushed downstairs and got out my daily vitamin, medicine, the dog’s daily pill.
Grabbed something to drink and took my medicine, the vitamin, and…
The dog’s pill.”
Ben: “So the first thing I do is call a past client of mine who’s a veterinarian. Got his voicemail.
I called poison control – after they laughed at me – they told me I would be fine.
Then I get a call back from my vet client – he’s laughing too and reassures me I’ll be fine, then says…You know, I’ve been meaning to call you about a bathroom project we want to get done…”
Ben: “Type all of that up and do what you want with it, but the two lessons I learned this morning:
- Pay Attention! Don’t rush so much.
- Reaching out previous clients works. Reach out to past clients!”
P.S. It’s a couple years old, but I was able to find a photo of “Brilliant Ben” – his boys and the doggy…
