Don't drink too much! Mixing business and pleasure can be dicey...gotta really know your customers to do that!
Events like this were pretty routine at places I Have worked. Except we as the contractor would cater them and invite all the HO friends and a few prospects too. They did become exhausting trying to keep the game face on for hours at a time. They did however produce new business. The single best thing you did was cleaning the shower head. It probably took 10 minutes and the good will you produced is worth potentially thousands in new business. :thumbup::thumbsup:BBQ went well, not nearly as annoying as i thought it would be, 10 minutes after i arrived the host asked " do you know why the shower in the cabana is not working? The sink and toilet are working, but water will not come out of the shower head". After a few minutes of verbally troubleshooting, i could not resist, i removed the shower head, cleaned out the strainer that was caked with rust and sediment, and presto, good shower pressure, Thats why i make the big bucks:no::laughing::laughing:. Anyway the afternoon was ok, my wife and i spent a couple of hours in the 50ft x 38ft swimming pool, Ate a bit of steak, made small talk, fielded a couple of trade questions, and rolled out after 6 hrs. These types of events are always tiring, you have to be on your game the whole time. One more thing, as we where getting ready to leave the HO asked, "how much do you think a new kitchen would cost:thumbup:. G
