Being frugal by nature, my business mission came naturally. Strip out the overhead – no brick-and-mortar showroom, no advertising, and no middlemen – and then pass the savings on to my clients.

Accuracy: More Than One Angle

From Adee Weismark, a prior team member, I learned the importance of adding single word when referring others. As a flooring contractor, I am in my clients’ homes and businesses and can often see that they need a handyman, or plumber, etc.

Before, when I saw a need, I would ask if they would like the name of a plumber, or handyman, or whatever, but they would often reply, “thanks, but I have one.”

Adee suggested that I ask them if they have a plumber, or whatever, that they are “happy” with.

I have been amazed by the change one word makes. Now when I ask them if they have a plumber they are “happy” with, they often so that “I have one, but he is just OK.” Or, “I have one, but he is just a name a neighbor gave me.”

I am continually amazed how one word can shift a person from already having the resource they need to asking for name of the person I can refer.
