Really? You Cheated on Me? and God Luck!

 Friday, I had lunch with a long-time realtor client.  After meeting her for a consultation at her latest listing, we went out to lunch.  We were celebrating the immediate sale of one her houses I had recently staged.  I really like Debbie. She is marvelously talented, successful and just plain fun to work with.

During the course of lunch, Debbie admitted she had cheated.

She had flandered-around with two other stagers.

My realtor hired the other stagers because they were cheaper.  Way cheaper.

I wasn't shocked.
Cheater-realtor has bullied challenged me about price the last several months.

I won't regale you with all the negative things she said about the other stagers. (OK--so yeah, I did egg it on a bit--merely, research I assure you!)  Then she glorified me with a tsunami of praise. (Smile. Smile.) And, concluded with, "I'm done trying anyone else. You always deliver."

She is now in a committed, monogamous relationship with me.

I'm Just Sayin'...
Many of my blogging friends are small business owners.  Stand your ground on your pricing.  Competition is rough but you can survive on quality verses quantity. Your reputation is everything.  Do your best work consistently.  Be ethical in all your dealings.  Treat everyone respectfully.

The best work commands the best price. 

God Luck!
I read an article with a typo in it recently.  It was suppose to read 'Good' luck.  It read "God" luck.
I have pondered this typo.
We've all had someone tell us "Good luck".
Is there "God" luck?  

Happy Sunday and God Luck for the coming week!


  1. You are so right! you get what you pay for and if your work is good, your price should reflect it.

  2. Thanks Heather! Happy Spring, my dear!
