Rieva: I remember when I got a birthday card from the hotel I stayed at in Taiwan, on my trip to Asia in 1992.

I agree that the key is follow-up. Do you have an app for that?! ;)

Love these tips! Learned a lot especially with regards to following up and regarding scripts. There needs to be guidelines but you should also never forget to add your personality.
