As A Last Step In The ...

As a last step in the process of inducting new smile card shippers, Geoff gives a call to the interested shipper to answer any questions that they may have, share his own experiences, etc. As the arrival of a new shipper in the queue is a totally random event, we keep sending requests to Geoff at totally random intervals of time. During one such day (when we had a sudden spurt in the number of people interested in shipping smile cards), I had written the following in my email to Geoff: "And thank you for never saying no to all such requests that we keep sending at totally random intervals to you. Oh - I forgot - we never give you a chance to say nay. We just assume that you are super-pumped-up-as-always and would never say no :)". And Geoff's response to my email was in the true-Make-Someone-Smile style: "Your note made me laugh! :) Whether it is one or a few, I never mind working on these requests. I really enjoy speaking with them because I never know what will happen. Sometimes I get to share in their enthusiasm at the opportunity to help out, which always makes me smile. Other times I can tell they are a little nervous so I get the chance to help them feel comfortable with everything." Words can never accurately capture the impact made by Geoff in our service journeys. So here is a deep bow of gratitude to Geoff .....

    Awwww, you are so kind, thanks so much Sujatha!

    Geoff is AWESOME! I am a brand new SMILE CARD shipper and I couldn't be happier. He is so kind, patient and fun, talk about the right person to get somebody motivated to do service. Geoff is a perfect fit, he takes you from being nervous and a little unsure of what you have gotten yourself into to confident and excited energy that you can't wait to share with anybody that will let you. Geoff is proof that not all SUPER HEROES wear capes:)
