And the Feeding frenzy begins

I’ve already received calls from guys asking. “Are you going to get any work in Japan?”  I told both of them, ” The damn water hasn’t receded yet.”  Airports haven’t been opened and the US military bases allowed planes that were circling during the tsunami to land so that they didn’t run out of fuel.

I’m sure that there are companies out there that have already made phone calls to see where they can fit in.  Long-term logistics are going to be a nightmare in the wake of this disaster.  Conversely, it will be much different than Haiti.  The AO is not a hostile area like Haiti was prior to their earthquake.  Resources in both countries are comparatively different. 

As far as BPI is concerned, we will entertain any and all possibilities but as long as I am the one pushing the buttons, I don’t want my company to be compared to an ambulance chasing attorney or a private tow truck company circling apartment complexes looking for parked cars without the proper parking sticker.

If your name is good, the work will come.  That’s not to say that you shouldn’t be actively marketing, but I can not get in the game of capitalizing on someones demise.  The work will come, whether it’s from a client or a referral from a client or another company needing assistance.

I was told by a financial business guru, “Remember 80% of your work comes from 20% of your clients”

That being said, if any of you need BPI’s help in any facet, do not hesitate to call upon us.
