It happened suddenly.
I was coming out of a meeting with a client, when a most charming and friendly gentleman walked pass.
“Hey, how have you been?” he asked.
“I’m fine, how are you?” I responded, not knowing whether I really knew him, or whether it was that his face was familiar. It must have shown on my face because his next statement was, “I know you. Where do I know you from?”
“Well, you look familiar to me, but you might be getting me confused with my twin sister [I actually HAVE a twin sister].”
“Hmmm. Where have you worked?”
“The House of Representatives,” I responded. He answered quickly: “That could be it,” to which I said, “Okay, that’s my sister. I never worked for The House.” (Frankly, he just SEEMED like a House of Rep type of guy…whatever that means.)
And that’s how my latest endeavor went into full throttle. Turns out “Bill” is an internet marketing guru. Having learned of my new eBook, he wanted to know whether it’d been published.
“Not yet. Still looking for someone to help me load it online.”
“Well, I can do that for you. Have you also…”and Bill began unleashing a series of inquiries the likes I’d never heard.
…and that’s when realized I had absolutely NO CLUE about internet marketing. But the good news was that I now had a real professional to help steer me in the right direction. Since that encounter just two weeks ago, I’ve totally revamped my eBook, hashed out a marketing strategy and feel as if I have a new life just over a most reachable horizon.
And to think it all started with a smile and lite conversation.
