Dear Business Competitors

Throw Back Thursday:
This Throw Back Thursday post is originally from 2011 and has gotten a fresh coat of paint.

Dear Business Competitors,

Thank you for sending my new client to your website instead of taking the time to talk to her on the phone.

Thank you for not understanding that she is trying to grow her business and that as long as her business grows, so does mine.

Thank you for not believing that $1.00 today is $10.00 next year, and $100.00 in two years.

Thank you for not seeing that after MY conversation with her, she will now go tell 20 of YOUR clients about me.

Thank you for giving me the chance to serve a stranger and make them feel heard, respected, and special. This makes me feel really really good.

Most of all thank you for giving me the opportunity to do this every single day.

Sad Face For The Legacy Of You,


  1. Where are you ignoring a potential “storyteller status”  customer right now?
  2. What are you going to do to pay attention to them RIGHT NOW, so you don’t end up in a situation like the subject of the above letter?
