One thing I like about working in my company is its aggressive approach towards seeking solutions to the problems that the company faces. There was recently a dip in sales and our management aggressively pursued business leads with the services of a lead generation company to generate more leads that WILL convert into sales.
Before engaging the services of this company, we downloaded case studies of clients that have been successful with the leads generated by this company. We were very careful as we had bad experiences with other lead generation companies that were not able to perform as promised.
My company has been happy with The Lead Dogs as we managed to have a pretty quick turnaround thanks to the positive leads generated.
The other day, I had the opportunity to listen to a recorded interview with a marriage counselor. She said that every time she is annoyed with something, she will tell herself, “Inner smile!” and she will conjure up an image of upturned lips and twinkly eyes.
Since then, whenever I get annoyed, especially when people come asking me for money as if I have a flourishing money tree, I will tell myself, “Inner smile, girl!”
You may wonder if this works, well most times it does. Not only do I conjure up a virtual smile in my mind, I also think of some joke or something that made me laugh. It helps when you have joker friends who crack jokes like nobody’s business all the time. I’m glad I do have friends like these to cheer me up. It sure beats searching the internet for jokes.
