Tuesday night I was able to meet a New York area client for dinner — in San Diego. He was here for a couple weeks to have the life sucked from his brain via his industry’s version of ‘continuing education’. That’s where the curriculum is 90% stuff you already know, or stuff that won’t matter if you live another 100 years. He was a little worn down.
However, a little filet, lobster, and shrimp later, we were reviewing Plans, and strategizing like champs. Dinner with James was the highlight of this week, hands down. I like the trend I’ve seen developing the last year or so. Clients and those wanting to explore become clients are giving me a heads up when they’re gonna be in my neck of the woods. It allows us to spend time together, share a meal, and maybe even polish up their Plans a bit. Since 95% of my clientele live 300-3,000 miles away, sometimes farther, it’s an opportunity I covet.
Gimme a heads up, OK?
So, if you’re gonna be in shoutin’ distance of San Diego and wanna meet up to say hi, let’s have some coffee or break some bread together. You’ll be doin’ me a favor by providing a fix that day. I have my afternoon coffee daily between 1:30 and 3. Whether it’s at the office or with you at Starbucks, I’m gonna have it. All things being equal, I’d rather it be with you. Same with lunch, or, if it’s on the weekend, breakfast works too.
