All of my clients love my assistant Matt and I have to agree that he is pretty great. I’m amazed that he has stuck with me at Kuzak’s Closet for a year now, time flies! When he started working for me I thought it would be temporary but after all this time he is still hanging around. I asked him what keeps him coming to work and he said “lunch.” He and I have that in common, we both love food. The only problem is that he is a very tall 22-year-old male and I am an average 32-year-old female, let’s just say the calories affect me more than they do him.
Lately we have been so busy with organizing projects that I have had to send Matt on his own to help some clients while I am working on other jobs. It was really difficult for me to give up control but I realized that he has watched me in action for long enough to know how to manage and execute a project as well as connect with clients and help them achieve their goals. I know if I want to expand my business that I am going to need to do this more often so it has been good practice. Last week he helped one of my client’s organize her storage unit and I was really happy to receive this note from her after the session…
“Matt is a ROCK STAR!! He was such a big help. Needs no direction and listens to instructions if there are any. He also makes great suggestions. He is a pleasure to work with!”
How nice of her to tell me! I wrote her back and said that he probably had the most peaceful day of work without me bossing him around, ha!
