The very next morning, the client wrote this email to me:
"Thanks so much for all the effort that you put into yesterday! We really loved meeting with you and your CAKE!! You are extremely talented and I feel extremely fortunate to have found/met you! My dad & finance, Ken, both enjoyed the cupcakes as well. :) Needless to say, we would love to move forward and get you a deposit to be able to secure the date!"
II'd say I'm making progress :)
