Cheers. Need a friend who knows your name? I’m always glad you came. I am your account manager and I am here to give you a voice. You don’t need to shout, you can get more answers with a whisper sometimes. You work hard, I’ll work for you. You work long hours, I’m right there with you. You don’t need added stress, I don’t have any. That’s what I am here to talk to you about.
Stress: It a killer, it’s frustrating, and honestly, it’s stressful. I am a firm believer that experts are experts for a reason. Let experts do their job. The vast majority of people try to take on too much. People don’t like saying no to their boss. A lot of people think that they can be superman (or superwoman). You can’t! It’s not healthy and it’s not helpful. Let people help you. Let me help you.
I have a good friend that is ex-military and when he came back to the U.S. the first thing he did after a much needed vacation was to become a personal trainer. He was good, no, he was very good. But his customers didn’t lose all of the weight that they wanted fast enough. It didn’t melt off. He didn’t work them out any faster with more weight. He didn’t work them out harder with more cardio. He took classes to become a life coach and started taking his clients out to lunch. He listened to problems that had nothing to do with working out. He listened. His days off were spent lending an ear and handing out shoulders to cry on. His customers had too much stress and his solution was to improve himself, in order to improve his customers. Now he doesn’t have customers, he has friends. I love that guy. His customers love him. They let someone willing to listen, do their job.
I work in an Agile Scrum environment. That doesn’t mean a lot to most people, but it does to me. What that means to you, is that I have the ability to focus on what you need. We have 2 week sprints with constant momentum focused on improvement and innovation. I get to focus on my customers and take the stress off you. I am not a Product Owner, I am not a Scrum Master. I am your voice, I am the Stake Holder for everyone. I am not in sales. My paycheck does not revolve around the money that you spend. I am paid through your satisfaction. I do want you to leave work on time. I do want you to listen to new music on your way home with a smile on your face. I do want you to go home and take care of you. I do want you to go to work tomorrow knowing that someone has you in the forefront of their mind. Do you know why you can’t hand Elsa from Frozen a balloon? Because she will “let it go”. I want you to let it go. I want to tell my 6 year old daughter that you laughed at that joke. I want to tell my 6 year old daughter that anyone laughs at my jokes.
We can communicate in so many different ways in the world we live in now. Instant gratification and communication is the new expected norm. Phone calls, email, twitter, website, and website contact forms are just a few of the ways to send and receive the information that you want. Let me help you help yourself. I am your ears and shoulder and then I am your voice. Let me help you Let It Go.
