A Little Success

I have been working for my father for about 2 months now and though I feel I have added minute levels of value to the company by creating marketing tools and checking our service at the various facilities in which we operate, I finally feel like I have earned my keep somewhat. Today my dad's partner Bruce and I secured an account in Boca Raton, FL called Stratford Court. According to the Director of Nursing we sold her "hook, line, and sinker." Ahhh, I am no longer a useless oaf. Although I did not add much to the pitch (I feel) I was the only one who was able to secure an appointment with the DON after several attempts by Bruce and his marketer Anthony. A few weeks ago I was also able to get my Father and Bruce into a nursing home that is owned by one of my Dad's biggest competitors - Mobile X. That felt good, but unfortunately I was not able to participate in the actual presentation because of my strep throat. Still it is quite a coup to be servicing a nusing home owned by a competitor!!

NICE! I am so happy that you are there helping dad. You are putting your suma cum laude or whatever to good use:) Now maybe I can get my wedding money from him...
