In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king's wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the King for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the stone out of the way.

I’m a very strong believer in the value and power of testimonials. On one hand, the world is full of salespeople who promise to do a good job for their customers. What’s usually lacking is the evidence to support that promise, and that’s what a testimonial letter or comment can provide for you.
I made a commitment to myself very early in my career, that anytime somebody told me that they liked doing business with me, or that I had done good work for them, I would ask them to put…

On the way home from Washington, D.C. recently, my husband began looking at the road signs to see what kinds of fooderies (my word) would be popping up soon, as it was after six and time for dinner. We'd been on the road for a few hours already and still had a few more to go. He was getting cranky from low blood sugar and we were still an hour outside of Richmond.
Long story short, around the bend we saw Aunt Sarah's Pancake House. My husband clapped his hands together. "PANCAKES!…

As the popularity of "Hoarders" grows, fans often come up to me in person or comment online about their enthusiasm for their favorite episodes. However, some people - usually those who have never actually seen an episode - ask, "Why is the show so popular since we're just seeing people really struggling with their stuff?"

We often hear the expression "get your head out of your butt", but I want to talk about getting the "buts" out of your head!
We all have them. I call them "yeah, buts"...

LOVE is all there is...every emotion comes from love; or its opposite fear. So live boldly, in love, measuring each thought, each word, each step as you go through your day. Honor the path of all you encounter. Accept the differences in others, for…Read More
Most salespeople seem to lack direction when it comes to developing a suspect list — and suspects, I hope you’ll remember, are people who you think might be prospects, but they still need to be qualified. I recently spoke with a salesperson who told me that she was gearing up for her annual prospecting effort, because the Chamber of Commerce list would be coming out later in the month. Setting aside the issue that prospecting should be an ongoing activity — not limited to…Read More
