I live in Houston and there are a lot of office buildings around downtown and the Galleria shopping areas. The potential is so great that it seems overwhelming at times! A couple of things I did to make things easier on my clients was to set up "house accounts" with each office and keep track of who was ordering what and when so I could plan on big monthly meetings and things like that to make a business plan. Another thing I did was to ask a lot of questions and narrow them down on their expectations. Yes, at times it may have made me look a little ignorant to some things, but in the long run, I grew from it, they got what they wanted, and how they wanted it, and it left room for me to go out there and do selling somewhere else. Good luck! You have a great opportunity in your hands!
