You Have Two Minutes to Get Me in A Good Mood!
(The article I’m sharing with you today was first written nearly two years ago but never sent out to our subscribers. As we are spending time with our son and his family on vacation and watching them raise and guide their children, it reminded me of the similarities of raising kids and managing sellers.)
A few weeks ago, I wrote about my youngest daughter’s “Last First Day of School”. It was just a few days later that my second child and oldest daughter, a 1st-grade teacher, called me on her way to work like she does nearly every morning. Normally, she is in a very good mood and happier than most people are at 7:15 a.m. On this morning, to say the least, she wasn’t! In fact, her first words were, “You have two minutes to get me into a good mood”, and I could tell by the tone, she meant business!
So we talked a bit and in about two minutes, maybe a couple more, she was ready to conquer the day. Shortly after that, I sent her this email and quote to give her one last pep talk.
