Gratitude Is About More Than Free Stuff

Thanks for the cookies, Steve!

Thanks for the cookies, Steve!

As I said earlier this month, the main thing I love about real estate is working with people. Part of that for me  is the ability to do nice things for my friends and clients. This time of year, my favorite way to show my appreciation is with one of my favorite things – Girl Scout cookies. Giving out Girl Scout cookies are, for me, a two-for-one deal. I get to remind my clients how much I value them, and I can support a worthy organization making a difference in the lives of young girls in our community.

The key too is giving them out in person whenever possible. Sure, those boxes ship, and I could include a nice note, but that defeats the purpose. Gifts are about marketing – take a look at your refrigerator magnets, or your set of coffee mugs if you don’t believe me. Most of those were “promotional items” (aka gifts) given to you specifically so you would remember a brand. Appreciation demands effort – looking someone in the eye and saying “thank you for supporting me” has an effect that a email or a phone call can never have. That effort shows that you care and, honestly, leaves a much stronger impression.

  2. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness
    and appearance. I must say you have done a fantastic job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Safari.
    Outstanding Blog!

    This is a case of companies making so much money and having little idea of what to do
    with it, so they start their own news service. Are you getting the proper number or pages from each toner cartridge.
    Laptops were created to be portable so people could carry their computer anywhere without having to haul around a huge desktop computer.

    These elementals hold all of life, as well as each one’s unique aspect of true self, and the
    collective aspect of humanity’s true nature within them.
    We can use earth acupuncture to hold these points with rocks or triskeles buried into the earth.
    After drinking that day night with his usual high
    blood pressure because he was thinking too much
    that period, the following morning which was on 21st May,
    2003 I tried waking him up from bed so he could go
    and take his bath but he could not we rushed him to the hospital for check-up and treatment but by 10pm that same day he died.
