In the US here you are the day before a long holiday weekend with visions of Turkey, Family & Friends, Naps, etc in your brain.
Yet you’re at work!
Here are 5 pre-holiday long weekend tips for you!
#1 – call your good customers to say thank you, you may find they have more time to talk and seem more relaxed than on a typical Wednesday.
#2 – make the calls you’ve been putting off, for whatever reason. If nothing else you can commiserate that you’re both working.
#3 – (you might not like this one!) PROSPECT – those people who don’t know you well yet will also be more relaxed and open to a conversation too.
#4 – Yes, yes I know a lot of people are on vacation this week. So call someone else!
#5 – you will also reach someone who is on vacation BUT has a job which requires them to forward their office phone to their cell phone. Have a conciliatory line ready – here is mine; “I’m so sorry you have a job where you have to answer your work phone while you’re on vacation! When will you be back in the office?”
Have a profitable and productive Wednesday!
