Day 27 – Tuesday Q&A
Woke up – pool time – shower – got ready – breakfast – one, two three, four, five and the day began. The blues of yesterday were gone and I felt much better. I walked Melissa to her car as she headed to work and it felt as comfortable as if we had been together for years. I told her that we would start doing our relationship questions later – see how compatible we are. She said she was excited to see if we were going to be a match. I said that I hoped we were because I would hate to get married to my sworn enemy (I’m a goof ball.)
I got a call from my Snyder connection at Western Texas College and they wanted to make sure I was going to focus on three key word phrases in my marketing plans. I told them that I was going to use best colleges in Texas, Texas colleges with online degrees and just regular Texas colleges. They agreed with these words and said that my simplicity in marketing was perfect for them. I promised to call them back in the coming weeks to make sure my marketing for them was delivering the sort of ROI they wanted (Return on Investment). They said they appreciated it.
After this call, I decided that it might be smart to call on my other clients to see if they were happy with the direction that my company and I were going with their campaigns. I began by calling the church architects to make sure church design was their main focus and ended by calling the real estate company to see if Lubbock homes for sale was their best option. Both agreed.
Besides these calls (which I made in the car) I made a visit to two new clients who wanted to discuss the possibility of using Google Adwords. I told them that this would be a good idea and that I could handle it. That was basically my work day.
When I got back to my suite, I laid down for a nap because I was a tired boy. I also took advantage of the time before Melissa got off work. When she got back from work, we went to a really good restaurant (Stella’s) and we discussed the first question in the book.
“What are your motivations for getting married?”
This question was not directed to getting married to each other, it was just a general question about marriage to anyone. Why marry anyone?
We both had to think about this pretty hard. I said that I wanted to get married so that I had a companion to walk through life with. Melissa agreed with that and added she wanted to be intimate with someone who knew her better than anyone else in the world and who still loved her despite her weaknesses. I thought that was a cool answer and claimed it as well. To be deeply known and cared for is a major thing.
Pretty good start towards compatibility. The night was a success.
