Today Carrie WIlkerson posted about “The Call”. If you’ve followed Carrie for any length of time you easily and quickly become part of her extended family. From new adoptions to Dad’s ministry and all the amazing fun her family shares with her audience. I had the chance to spend a few days in Dallas with Carrie December 2013 – BE4Dallas – and gained so much information 3 months later I am still trying to act on it all. If you are a growing business I encourage you to connect with Carrie – you’ll be glad you did.
Here is a excerpt from her blog www.carriewilkerson.com – The Call – following the excerpt I’ll say a bit more for those interested in Preparing for The Call.
“You know the one I’m talking about, right?
- The call that makes your pulse race, your heart sink, your blood pressure spike and the clock stop?
- The call that makes you abandon your grocery cart in the aisle and disregard every traffic rule and speed limit?
- The call that makes everything you griped about today or this MONTH irrelevant and ridiculous?
Yesterday, I got that call. Actually — it was a text.
“Dad in an ambulance headed to ER, call Hal.”
First you freeze. Then you pray. Then you move into action.
You’re looking a little nervous, so let me just tell you — he’s okay now. We are still having tests done this week and everything seems fine. (But if you pray, hey – I won’t be mad if you add Robert Owensby to your list ”
I know Carrie enough to know what you read on her blog is the truth, you can bet her mind went in exactly the order and thoughts you read and she moved to action – quickly (thus the cart left in the grocery aisle).
Are you ready for your own version of “The Call”?
