Morning Miracle. Anything MindValley. If I tell you, you would think I’m nuts. I had just started and landed a 2.3mm account. I did my proposal and told them to take their time. I waited and followed up with an email. I suggested dollar cost averaging. Every other Friday I needed to place my orders in order to get paid the following week. I’d think of client and prayed he’d call me. At 2:30pm, he’d call and place his orders. I am forever grateful to him and his wife. To this day, I treat them with the best service I can. They receive all of my attention, year end basket etc.
