Bidding on an index? Be like the Spiderman of Paris

Mamoudou Gassama, the Malian man now called the “Spiderman of Paris,” climbed four levels up the side of a building and rescued a four-year-old boy dangling from a balcony. As a bonus, he was honoured with a medal for bravery, the promise of citizenship, and a job with the fire brigade. That success will come—if you are prepared and courageous—was demonstrated again.

How was Gassama prepared? Well, he is athletic and fit. He may even have rock-climbing experience. Anyway, he seemed to know what he was doing.

His skills and his courage made the rescue not only successful, but awesome.

How does this apply to indexing, you wonder?

Preparation and a little courage can help you win more indexing business. At the conference in Winnipeg June 8-9, I’m revealing selling secrets that will help you write compelling responses to authors’ and editors’ queries…those emails that ask “Would you be interested in indexing my book?”

By the way, if you are still on the fence about attending, be aware that the deadline for the banquet numbers is Thursday, May 31.

See you at the conference!
