The Art of the Thank You Note

Posted by:

Saying “thank you” is not only the right thing to do, but it is also an effective way to keep in touch with people in your industry or field of interest and leave a positive impression on the reader of the note.

I recently had the opportunity to interview Rebecca Quinn on my BlogTalkRadio show, “Your Partner in Success“. We had a great time and shared a lot of information and tips about getting your business and your life organized and she gave specific tips about systems and processes to help the home-based entrepreneur set up these systems.

Imagine my delight when this lovely note from Rebecca came in the mail!

Thank you Rebecca! I very much appreciate you taking the time out of your hectic schedule to share your passion and expertise about our industry with myself and our audience and it was lovely “meeting” you. We will definitely stay in touch.

    Hey! Glad to read that the old fashioned way of sending ‘Thank you’ note still exists.

    My ‘thumbs up’ to Rebecca!

    Great post. I firmly believe that thank you notes will always be one of the best ways to stand out in the minds of friends, family and colleagues. I owe my current job to the thank you note I sent in after my interview. It’s a lost art that needs to be revived.
