One of the major things that motivated me to turn this calendar idea from something just for me into what it is now, was the feeling I got hearing the comments from those first enthusiastic buyers. I’d think to myself, “Wow, I’m really helping someone”. Could this be what a teacher, medical professional or the like experiences as they go about their work? How few of us ever get to experience such a feeling.
As each handwritten first time or repeat mail order form arrives, it reminds me of that original feeling. Sometimes people give me feedback via the website or in a note stuck in the envelope. How rewarding it is to hear that this simple product is making a difference in people’s daily life.
While orders to resellers and over the Internet to individuals are a vote of confidence, these mail-order customers are somehow special to me. I hope I never lose this feeling.
