We had been trying to land a new customer at the firm, but it was proving to be quite difficult.
Eventually, she agreed to meet with our team, but they had to go to Libertyville.
We held a meeting at the office to decide who would go on the two-week business trip. I’d been dealing with the client all along, so my boss saw it was best to send me to the area. He coached me on a lot of things and wished me well. I went home that evening and informed my spouse about the decision that we had made at the office. He was fine staying with the children, and I began to pack. I was leaving in a day and had to make sure to handle several tasks before leaving. It was winter, and I needed a new winter coat to stay warm while still looking stylish during the meetings. Finally, the day came for me to leave, and I flew to the town. The whole flight, I spent time rehearsing my speech and learning more about our potential client. She was quite a wealthy woman who would be a great addition to the company. Libertyville was just as cold as my home, and I was happy the hotel had an excellent heating unit. It felt good to relax for the rest of the day before waking up for the meeting the following day. I had to wake up to adjust the thermostat during the night, but otherwise, I slept soundly. On the meeting day, I woke up early and went to the meeting an hour early just to get familiar with the place.
