I called one of my “selling owner” sales coaching clients at about 2:30 PM yesterday, and the person who answered the phone told me that she was “gone for the day.” Now, I’m not saying that it’s not OK for the owner of a business to take part of a day off, or for any employer to do that, salesperson or otherwise. What I am saying is that it’s dumb for whoever answers the phone to tell me that! What if I were a customer, calling to talk about an order—or even worse, a problem! If I’m at work… Read More

When I lived in Boston, I learned to walk fast, speak briskly, and save the chit chat for family and close friends. Your washer needs repair?

Seth Godin posted a blog entry about the fact that his friend's local store is closing down due to a new Walgreen's popping up.
I think he was a bit cynical and one-sided with his point of view, but that he did make some good points.

Final Friday was again wonderful! I attribute that to the good will of the group but mostly the work of "a few good men". Pat, Martin, and Bill — all capable leaders of thought, bringing us a wonderful experience. Again the thing I find so special is the good will of these men to work together on the same team.
Imagine 65 people in the room and complete silence. Men and women all focused on the support of one of their peers devising creative solutions for their business dilemma. One… Read More

The other evening Pat Howlett and Martin Brossman put on an introduction to the JUNTO groups about to be formed. I noticed with delight that Steve Hand was present. One of the more delightful and good spirited ways to do business was demonstrated so subtly for us you could almost miss it. The idea is that collaboration can come in many ways and it always trumps competition.
These Junto groups could perhaps be thought of as a marketing small BNI group, if you didn't understand the… Read More

The second time around. You’ve gotten through your first divorce and your marriage was considered long-term, and maybe you were awarded the marital home or sold it and have some money socked away. You’ve launched yourself into a new career or you’re still receiving alimony. Maybe you’re just drifting along without much purpose and don’t know what you’re next step should be. You think you’ve grown wiser from your experience. Then . . . you meet someone . . . a man who seems to have so many of… Read More

If you take a short stroll down the snack isle of your local grocery store, you are bound to notice a package or two, or ten with the message "No Trans Fat!" prominently displayed on the packaging. This message is dutifully accepted by the casual observer as being a good message. What consumers may not realize is that the changes food manufacturers have had to make to maintain a zero-trans-fat image may be just another “rob Peter to pay Paul” moment in history.
