Grandmothers are chock full of wisdom. As a business coach and mentor, I suggest that when you’re thinking about running your business, think about the simplicity of grandmother’s rules, and make sure they’re incorporated into the way you run your business.
Simple, handwritten thank you notes go miles. Nothing beats a handwritten thank you note. It’s even more powerful today in our fleeting, electronic world. Getting a handwritten note means you took the time to say thank you the right way.
Jack Daly takes the handwritten thank you note one step further. Jack takes photos of himself with people, often in fun situations. He then uploads those photos to Shutterfly.com, SendOutCards.com or a similar website where he can quickly type up a personal note. Then presto, Shutterfly mails the card to the person’s address for Jack. Those cards don’t get thrown away. Instead, they stay as little marketing reminders to his friends.
