Hey, Maybe the Reason Your Business is Down Has Nothing to Do With the Economy
People love to blame the economy for things, but sometimes I’ve just got to wonder. You see, I’ve been trying for weeks to get quotes on something. Weeks and weeks! I’ve called several different companies, leaving messages with each one.
People promise that they’ll have the appropriate person call me back, but no one ever returns my call. Well, I take that back, one company did call back, but it was to tell me that they weren’t able to help me and to refer me to someone else. (The referral didn’t call back.)
I feel like telling these people that they’d probably get a whole lot more business if they returned a few phone calls.
Oh well, if nothing else it’s a good reminder to myself to make sure that I follow through on things. Follow through can make all the difference.
Update: I wrote this about a week ago. Between then and now, I did finally get someone to call me back and they’ve been a pleasure to work with.
