Yesterday I woke up and looked at my phone to see a text message. I recognized the number, but I wasn't quite sure who it was. The message read "Is that you nominated for Peoples Choice Award? If so, congrats!"
I quickly googled People's Choice Award + Huntsville. Yep. That's me. Being as my last name is Bailey, I was the second person listed. Nearly 50 entrepreneurs in our local area who had received a nomination were named alphabetically.
Still not knowing who the congratulatory text was from, I replied "Thank You :). Honored!"
A few hours later I became curious. Exactly who nominated me for this award? And why isn't my website ready yet with all this flurry of mention on social media, AL.com, etc? And who sent that text?
I sat back down at my desk and refocused on decisions for fonts, photos, text size and button colors for the new website, hoping to release SOMETHING before the contest ends. I have seven days.
I take a break and return to the text message. I toss the number into google. I smiled at the results. Yes, I should have known that number. It's a another local business owner, specifically the realtor we hired to help us sell our home two years ago. Thanks Rob! http://www.myhuntsvillehomesearch.com/
