Hi Everyone, Carl Gould here your #70secondCEO, just over a minute of investment per day for a lifetime of results.
So, umm, you know if you look at their – if you look at the umm everyone’s email signature, that’ll tell you what area that they handle mostly. You know whether it’s events, whether it’s coordination, whether it’s admin, whether it’s accounts and finance that’s how like, that’s how you’ll find – yeah now that you know what I’ve told you, you’ll look at the email signature and go “ohhhh, now I know who to go for”, ’cause it’s sitting in the email signature. But we think of it in terms of position, ’cause here’s what started to happen. Monica says “um, oh wait a minute, I um I’m gonna be on vacation for a month”, so I hand off this stuff to somebody else. If the name was different, the client’s all confused. Like “Oh my God, they’re gone? So who do we send the email to?” “Same place”, “Same place but she’s gonna be gone!”. Ehh but it doesn’t – eh, so we they got – we would go around in this circle.
So, if something goes to events, we can hand it off to somebody for a month and they can step in and do it, because our calendar shows exactly how it gets done. Ok, so the calendar is the hub. Whatever smart, fun technology you think you have, go back to the calendar. They’re all great, ’cause we have to – ’cause we’re forced to be on ’em with you, and go back to the calendar. It’s – just go old school on the calendar, it’s the easiest way to go, you will love it.
