A day in the life of a CSS driver

A few customers/clients ago, I met someone that made my employment at Clermont Senior Services rewarding as usual. This is a man who aspired to be a window treatment salesman for 43 years.

No matter how he is feeling, our day always begins with a “Hello, how are you today?” Over the years we’ve talked about places where he has been, people he has met, fishing, and sports, to cars that he has owned.

This man still opens a window to many blessings for his family, his friends and often to the people he connects with on a daily basis. I’m no exception. The blessings I receive each day are countless memories from the past, the present and those still approaching me from the future.

In my line of work, I believe another key to building a successful partnership is communication with a smile.

Even if that smile is hidden under the many layers of our lives, it can be brought to the surface through as a simple gesture as "Hello, how are today?" Say hello to a stranger today while you're out and about, you just might find a memory waiting to be discovered.

If you, or someone you know needs help, contact Clermont Senior Services at (513) 724-1255 or visit our website at www.clermontseniors.com
