And Iâ€™ll show you a disillusioned agent.
I offered my head housekeeper a Safeway coupon and a car Kleenex caddy as â€œmotivationâ€ to answer the phone in a dignified manner. (I keep asking her to say â€œMrs. Gabbalotâ€™s residenceâ€ not â€œthat cheap skankâ€™s cribâ€). She laughed and said â€œWhat do you take me for? A travel agent?â€
And there you have it, Pumpkins.Â We have to decide if we are business people or mindless kittens who jump at the sight of a little foofoo attached to a string. Granted, there is really nothing cuter than a little pussy batting a fluffy about â€“ but itâ€™s not going to pay the rent.
If most of you put yourselves in the â€˜businessâ€™ category â€“ suppliers arenâ€™t hearing you. The money, effort, resources and overhead that go into making a better foofoo are staggering. Interestingly, ASTA recently published a study that indicates agents tend to book whatâ€™s best for their client. Go figure.
