When Gail and Mike opened their home inspection business, Gail got tasked with handling Marketing for the business.  “I am not a big fan of marketing and wanted to give him back that job after my first tour of cold calls at realtors’ offices.  Some were nice, but most just wanted me to go away, which I was glad to do,” she says.

 

Gail loved to bake and knew this skill would elicit smiles as soon as she walked into the offices.  Now her treats have become baked Thank You’s for the referrals received and friendships fostered.   Now in their sixth year in business, colleagues always ask for the secret recipe.  Hopefully it will foster the same level of success Gail has had with it.
