Sounds like a pretty chill manager trying to be encouraging

Is their in person demeanor opposite to how they portray in email. If so it is possible that they are being fake. However I use exclamations in my emails because it reflects my personality. I wouldn’t question it too much as this seems like a nice way to receive an email. It’s much better than being passive aggressive or someone who types things in all caps to get a point across.

Does anyone have an email template they like when making "cold call" introductions to other professionals/potential referral sources. I need to build a referral network with CPAs, financial planners, etc., and invite them to come to me with questions or send their referrals on over! Bonus points if you have more than one or one which is more easily customizable.
