THE BEST WAY TO REACH ME IS EMAIL
True story, After sending an email through LinkedIn and leaving a few voice mail messages, this young lady I’ve been trying to recruit finally picked up her phone. She told me it was not the best time for her to talk. When I asked her when would be a better time, she said something that I will never forget! She said…’the best way to reach me is email’. I’ve heard this response many times before, but it was the way in which she said it, that made me changed the way I connect and engage with individuals in the health & benefits marketplace….
