Many of you know that Timothy has recently gotten into the business of painting studio backdrops. It's pretty perfect in that he likes to do it (9 x 7' canvass is fun for him), it's very easy for him, and he can charge a hefty sum and still undercut all the competition.
We thought we'd see how far this could go, so I made fliers. About a week ago I sent out 20 of them to local photography studios, but we hadn't heard anything - except for the one that came back undeliverable.
Yesterday Timothy got a phone call from a woman who owns a studio in Crystal Lake. She really likes the stuff and wants to order two, but first she asked if he could email a PDF of the flier. She has a meeting today with some organization of portrait photographers (there's a big, fancy name I don't remember), and she wants to hand out some of our fliers! She's never met Timothy, never done business with him - but she's our in with who knows how many portrait photographers today! She asked Timothy on the phone yesterday how busy he wanted to be! That's favor, right there.
