Progress Report A progress report is an assessement that takes place during a project or a process. I also think of it as a "check in" of sorts. Generally, I don't like to intrude. On people. Their time. Or space. Things like that. That said, it may seem odd to some for someone who has spent much of his life in sales-related fields to admit something like that but that's who I am. Each of us finds what works for us. Hopefully. Each of our strategies reflect who we are.
A few weeks ago, I was thinking about some people. People from ActiveRain. Some who have moved on from this platform for a number of reasons. Known and unknown. I decided to reach out to three of them through the AR mail system. Just to check in and say hello. Not particularly intrusive, right? Two of the members I had spoken with and one we traded comments on posts.
I was happily surprised when I received a quick response. That first response came from Joanna Cohlan. You may remember Joanna as the savvy voice behind Fresh Eyes For Your Home. She's a talented New York interior designer and stager who I have had the pleasure of speaking with and following her smart posts and spot-on comments on ActiveRain.
Through the magic of email, we were able to catch up with the latest news in each of our lives as well as some of the most recent movies(a long-time favorite of both of ours). A positive experience. Next: I am sure a phone call is sure to be a part of the story.
Oh and by the way --- tomorrow, January 11 is Joanna's birthday. Here's to celebrating in style. As only Joanna knows how to do.
