I must say that I got what I wanted out of this contest. Sure, my internet is still down, but in any event, even with the internet issues, I got to meet, corroborate and mentor someone who really needs to be mentoring others in our industry.
I had the opportunity of having Kathy Sheehan asking to be the grasshopper. I was thrilled because Kathy's reputation precedes her. The fact that she asked me to help her in the Sensei / Grasshoppa contest thrilled me.
We had a difficult time scheduling our times that work...but ONCE WE GOT ON THE CALL....We hit it off like two peas in a pod. She's passionate about lending and passionate about her industry.
I hosted a "Go To Meeting" and we ended up sharing my computer in order to critique her blog looks. There were gaps, but the point of this post here was to just say that we had a great time and I helped her gain a bit of an improvement in her site as well as helping her imporove her SEO a bit.
We met again on the first week of May and boy did she make some changes. What was good was now really good and.....THE PROOF BEING IN THE PUDDING....
SHE HAD RECEIVED 3 REFERRALS
between the times of our meetings.
I, personally am so frustrated that our internet at home is not working, but, it was well worth my time hanging and working with Kathy Sheehan. She's a consummate professional and I, personally, learned a lot from her as well. It was a lot of fun!
Thanks Dick...it was an awesome contest!
