Who have you meet professionally that really impresses you and are glad you met?
Well here is my “touching” story…
For me it is Kim Ashely here in Chicago. I had bumped into Kim a couple times at various real estate luncheons... and I basically steered clear of her. WHY? Well my company, Real Estaging, had a relationship with another furniture rental company that I felt a certain loyalty to, and Kim worked for the competing rental company.
So I was polite to Kim of Brook Furniture Rental, but didn't purse her as a resources. But Kim called me… and set up a meeting. And off I went…
So last Friday when Kim and I met we just "hit it off". WOW did we click. Time flew by, of course our conversation was filled with ideas, as we shared our thoughts and hopes on not only how to make our own businesses better, but how to make the entire STAGING INDUSTRY BETTER. Before I got back to my studio... she called to invite me to be her guest to a real estate networking opportunity that Brook Furniture Rental was sponsoring yesterday! Of course I went… but that is a different funny story.
Knowing I could trust her... I even showed Kim my "scathing" promo on how we upstaged Brook on a previous job. SHE LOVED IT! She looked beyond what it said and saw an opportunity for her company to do more business! (You talk about taking lemons and making lemonade!)
I can not say enough nice things about this person AND I AM PROUD ANNOUNCE THAT KIM ASHELY is a new member to the AR puddle. There are a couple more blogs in me about Kim... so keep watching.
Kim, I am sincerely honored and glad to have met you... you have touched me. Welcome!
