Soak up everything you can. Whether you’re reviewing an old case note, going by addresses, or being trained by yours truly. There’s a lot going on in every one of those situations. You may not even remember that tiny piece of information registering in you brain. But it did.
I’ve been doing this work for 17 years. That’s a lot of accumulation. When I perform a training, I’m like the Energizer Bunny. I don’t have a lot of time so I’m going to transport everything I can. By the end of the training, exhaustion usually sets in on both ends. As you step into your search for people, these bits will begin to glow like burning coals, and you’ll use them.
