Every prospective client should know these things about me before we begin working together.
It’s only fair.
1.) I can play the piano.
Not by ear. I have to read the notes.
2.) I graduated in the top 3% of my high school class.
However impressive, I’ve never found a good use for this piece of information. If you have any ideas, let me know.
3.) I’m not a big cat lover.
But they keep hanging around in my yard waiting for me to change my mind.
4.) My past indicates I seem to be drawn to working with people in crisis (who also happen to be broke).
I’m notorious for attracting all the strays, the unwanted, the wounded, the overlooked … the misfits. Know where they’re having a sale on cheese?
5.) My sense of humor is my greatest asset.
However, my children will deny that fact.
6.) I’ve never broken a bone and I had 20/20 vision until age 54.
I have had some cavities, though, and I chipped my tooth once when I bit down on a corn nut.
7.) I don’t accept collect calls.
Except from dear friends who have the misfortune of being incarcerated.
8.) I am a middle child.
And you know what they say about us.
9.) I have received several prestigious awards.
Other than my mom, who really cares?
10.) I spent one summer reading the entire collection of Nancy Drew Mysteries.
This fact, alone, should be plenty of evidence I am persistent, dedicated, and tough enough to withstand the challenge of working with you.
Still not convinced?
Building a business online can feel somewhat like walking through a forest at night. Even if you’re amazing at what you do, you could still poke your eye out on a sharp branch.
I went to Girl Scout Camp.
I carry a flashlight (and extra batteries).
