Did you think your homework obligation was complete just because you aren’t in school anymore?
WRONG! Now, more than ever, it is crucial for your continued success in ANY endeavor to DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
It doesn’t matter WHAT activity you are engaged in…business development, customer service, or simply just trying to keep your job. If you do your homework and go that extra mile, you will prevail! Heck, forget the extra mile anymore, an extra INCH will put you head and shoulders above the rest!
Although it seems oxymoronic (did I make that up?), in today’s tough economic environment, it appears that customer service is actually getting WORSE. One might surmise that people would be anxious to kick up the service a notch or two in order to help their employers do better, but NOT SO MUCH!
This recessionary downturn gives anyone who wants to take advantage the opportunity to truly SHINE in their efforts to improve whatever it is they are doing. Do your homework…check out a prospective client on the internet, ask some open-ended questions, bring something helpful to the table, show that you CARE!
In the printing industry, doing your homework can make or break your chances with earning orders, according to Margie Dana.
Your winning-est bet is to put your best foot forward, and deal with companies that have like minds to yours.
NOW GO TO YOUR ROOM AND DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
