Yesterday I got an email from a blog reader. Clearly, this guy "got it." He included background information on who he was, a list of books he likes, and a list of which posts of mine he’s particularly enjoyed. He said, "I don’t really want anything particular out of the email, just wanted to reach out to you. I’ve been wanting to email you for awhile. Just a shot in the dark."
Well, wouldn’t you know it, just as I got his email, I was checking my return flight home in August and noticed I had a one night stayover in Calgary, Canada. This guy lives in Calgary. I quickly fired back an email thanking him for his note and asking if he wanted to get together when I’m in Calgary for the night. I’ll be crashing in his condo in downtown Calgary and I look forward to our conversations. Thanks Matt.
Have you been waiting to cold call someone? Stop waiting — do it now! See what happens! Who knows?!
