Yesterday was a day that I was glad to see end.
But let me set the stage.
I'm not a football fan, but I understand that Tom Brady is in the playoffs again.
This season, he threw 582 passes, but only completed 373 (64%) and he got intercepted 9 times.
He's not perfect, but he's good enough to be in the playoffs....... again.
OK, back to me.
Yesterday, somebody filled out my form and answered every question, "Yes."
Now, if a person has been in business for over 20 years answers that they're looking to establish proof of concept and that they're looking for their first customer, I have to question the answers.
When I asked they replied, "Hmm, I suspect a form fail is at work here ......... I wanted to seek sales counseling/training/ass kicker/not sure what for 2015"
When I read the reply, I thought, "OK. I better check to see if I have a form fail."
The " ......... " is the part of their response that I omitted, but notice that this person might be looking for my help because I am really good at kicking ass.
So, I replied, "OOPS!
OK. Let's just schedule a call next week.
Monica, would you use the schedule link below my name? We'll do the rest.
I like the "ass Licker" part."
Not kidding. I hit send. Never noticed how close the "L" and the "K" were on the keyboard.until I was called on it.
Boy am I glad that yesterday is over, but even Tom Brady threw nine interceptions last year and I bet that he was glad that those days were over.
As a good friend of mine says, "You don't have to be perfect to be great!"
