Never Look A Gift Horse In The Mouth

Some days are just a gift. Yesterday was one of those for me.

Started out with a morning call with AW - always a treat. Then....the boss called. cue music of doom

He just wanted to make sure I knew how MUCH I am appreciated. And how, no matter how rough things have been, my efforts have not gone unnoticed.

My response?

Ok. Thanks. What do you want?

Yeah, nice Tammi.

But that's why he called! How cool is that?!?!

THEN....the last hold out on my new pricing schedule was approved today. What does that mean? It means that every last one of my customers is now shipping. WooHoo!!!! And it only took me two weeks!

THEN...cause it's not done yet.....driving into Chicago my phone rings. It's my....um, yeah, demanding customer. He called to thank me. And tell me he appreciates what I'm doing for him. AND apologize for bein' so rough on me.

When I hung up after THAT call I was staring at the phone like it was some kind of foreign being.

THEN, I met with the new prospect. She's opening a brand new store. Wants to carry both my stuff and the stuff from my old company. I was going to get 6 slots. She's now decided to give me 14 slots and tell the other company to just forget it.


And I'm STILL not done. I got home and my friend in Tampa called. We're chatting and I'm telling her I have to pull together a special promotional offer for the customer I'm visiting today. It's got to be a great bed, or series of beds, at down and dirty pricing.

How about we just launched a program of exactly that YESTERDAY?!?! And the beds are FANTASTIC. And CHEAP. Good and Cheap. It just don't get any better than that.

He's looking at ordering a truck load. That. Will make me Queen.

I didn't want to go to bed, I was afraid my coach would turn into a pumpkin at midnight!

But no matter what happens today - I had yesterday. And it was a Damned Good day!
