Powerful Words

TYou“We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thank you. Aren’t those words wonderful, pleasing, and sometimes rare?

I have always urged CPAs and their individual team members to handwrite personal thank you notes to their clients and others.

A handwritten thank you also makes a great impression if you have been interviewed for a job. At many firms, that simple act moves a candidate up a few notches on the hiring scale.

I received the card in the picture yesterday. A young man, completely unknown to me, contacted me to ask some questions about getting a job in public accounting. We talked about how his interest in technology would be a plus and about what size of accounting firm he should approach.

How niceĀ of him to send me a handwritten thank you.

Maybe you have a client who has a child graduating this year, from high school or college. A handwritten congratulations card would be an impressive thing to send.
