What’s going on with your SBL listing?

This popped up on my Facebook memories this morning. I don’t post about client events very often, but given I can’t remember even what client this is, I don’t think I’m revealing too much info.

FB memory from a few years ago.

I’m dealing with a client who has a pretty big SBL listing. They’re going through a lot of contortions to fix the problems the SBL is pointing out, but I’m concerned that the SBL listings aren’t the complete story.

I sent them this in an email this morning. I’ve tried to tell them during our calls, but they keep mis-hearing or mis-interpreting what I’m saying. So I write down some speculations and send them by email.

Then a friendly, neighborhood SBL person contacts me and asks me a question about something totally unrelated. So I get about 4 sentences into my question and he says “Imma gonna let you finish, but let me tell you <exactly what I told the client might be going on behind the scenes>.

Yeah. Sometimes I get it right.

  • Friday blogging... or lack of it

    It seems the last few Friday's I've been lax on posting. Some of that is just by Friday I'm frantically trying to complete all my client deliverables before the weekend. The rest of it is by Friday I'm just tired. Today had the added complication of watching the Trumpcare debate and following how (and how soon) it would affect my company if it passed. That's been a bit distracting, along with the other stuff I posted about yesterday. I wish everyone a great weekend.1 Comment

Compromise an email account and you can get access to social media, and other accounts. Email is the key to the kingdom.No Comments
