Here to Serve: There's No Catch


By Katie Torres

I was asked the other day if I would help out a girl who was selling cosmetics. She said she was working toward a goal with the company, and I could help her out by receiving a free facial.

I was immediately suspicious about what "the catch" was.

You know, what it is that she really wanted from this transaction. Surely, she was not just handing out something for free.

I was expecting what usually happens, to happen again. There had to be a catch, and there was just no way she was giving me the whole story about that that catch was.

But every now and then, there is no catch. 

You come across someone who is genuinely wanting to serve.

They serve in such a way that surprises you.

You expect that they will be just like any other company you've encountered that was looking to make a profit from your inexperience.

But instead, they exceed your expectations and give you even more than you had asked for. 

They tell the truth, and do not look for ways to make more money.

When you ask questions, they are upfront with you and tell you exactly how it is.

They don't leave you wondering if there is something they are not saying. It's all out there, and it is not hard to tell that you are being well taken care of.

They take responsibility for their mistakes, and work to make it better.

If there is a problem or a misunderstanding, they do not place the blame on you or anyone else.

They are quick to make things right, and they do not stop working until the job is done.

Have you encountered a company like this? One that makes you want to come back, and tell everyone about them, because their service is just that great?

We'd love to hear about it. Tell us what about them caught your attention, and how they served you well.
