Dear ToddCohen.com Sales Community,
Today I am reminded of the way in which I learned to sell. It was by spending countless hours listening to my father sell his services as a wedding photographer to prospective brides and grooms all over the Pittsburgh area. He was passionate, engaged, and caring. He spent as much time as he needed to explain what would happen that day and patently answering questions. He made his clients smile with his easy charm and sense of humor. He gently closed by promising a great day with excellent weather….and he was rarely wrong. His close rate was pretty good!
My dad died in 1989 and today he would have been 77 years young. He has left his mark on this earth in many ways…a whole generation of smiling brides and grooms and a son who learned so much and is so very thankful.
So, dad, today you are in my thoughts, and I want you to know how much I miss you. You may be gone, but you are always with me.
Your loving son,

Todd, thank you for sharing your Dad’s Birthday & your memories with all of us.
Just think what today’s young folks are absorbing… with so many of us working
from Home, these days.
What a lovely story. I never knew your dad was a photographer. What a cool profession. And he has a special loving son. Thanks for sharing and HB Mr. Cohen!
