Watch out for dog pills…

I just received a call this morning from a long-time and great (and good looking, kind, brilliant, yadda, yadda, yadda) client, Ben Templeton.

Ben says, “Hey Kyle – want to hear a story that has a lesson for your personal life AND business life?”

Kyle: “Of course, those are my favorite ones!”

Ben: “So I got up a little late this morningI was cuddling in bed with our two boys and chatting and hanging out with them.

Got up, jumped in the shower – rushed downstairs and got out my daily vitamin, medicine, the dog’s daily pill.

Grabbed something to drink and took my medicine, the vitamin, and…

The dog’s pill.”

Kyle: [Laughing]

Ben: “So the first thing I do is call a past client of mine who’s a veterinarian. Got his voicemail.

I called poison control – after they laughed at me – they told me I would be fine.

Then I get a call back from my vet client – he’s laughing too and reassures me I’ll be fine, then says…You know, I’ve been meaning to call you about a bathroom project we want to get done…”

Kyle: “Yes!”

Ben: “Type all of that up and do what you want with it, but the two lessons I learned this morning:

  1. Pay Attention! Don’t rush so much.
  2. Reaching out previous clients works. Reach out to past clients!”

P.S. It’s a couple years old, but I was able to find a photo of “Brilliant Ben” – his boys and the doggy…
