Thoughts for the Week

Posted on July 30, 2012 under Thoughts for the Week.

Make a difference today, pay it forward,  and remember:  you’ve got to ‘love’ yourself; having a low opinion of yourself isn’t modesty, it’s self destruction; and holding your uniqueness in high regard is not egotism, it’s a prerequisite to success.

Sales Management 101: Are Great Sales People An Endangered Species?

Posted on July 20, 2012 under Sales Management 101.

I talked last month about the importance and the value of sales force turnover (see Sales Management 101 post from June 23, 2012).  More specifically, I stressed that turnover was only a good thing if it  was from the bottom 25% of your sales team, not the top 25%.

With good sales people becoming harder and harder to find (attract) I thought the attached article would be of value to everyone who is trying to upgrade their talent in the sales arena.

Sales 101: Do You Have To Pander?

Posted on July 6, 2012 under Sales 101.

 

From Seth Godin: 

The road to the bottom is paved with good intentions, or at the very least, clever rationalizations.

National Geographic goes into a cable TV partnership and ends up broadcasting shameless (shameful? same thing) reality shows, then justifies it as a way to make money to pay for the good stuff.

Restaurants serve chicken fingers to their guests’ kids, because it’s the only thing they’ll eat.

Some comedians give up their best work in exchange for jokes that everyone will get.

Brands extend their products or dumb down their offerings or slap their brands on inferior substitutes all in the name of reaching the masses.

And that’s the problem with the shortcut. You trade in your reputation (another word for brand) in exchange for a short-term boost of awareness or profit, but then you have neither. Yes, you can have a blog that follows every rule of blogging and seo, but no, it won’t be a blog we’ll miss if it’s gone.

Should Harley Davidson make a scooter?

Yes, you can pander, and if you’re a public company and have promised an infinite growth curve, you may very well have to. But if you want to build a reputation that lasts, if you want to be the voice that some (not all!) in the market seek out, this is nothing but a trap, a test to see if you can resist short-term greed long enough to build something that matters.

Thanks for being here today.  Make a difference, pay it forward,  enjoy the weekend, and remember to make only promises you can keep (your words have a huge long term impact on your reputation).

Happy 4th of July!!!!

Posted on July 3, 2012 under 4th of July.

Have a fun, safe and Happy Fourth of July!

Healthy, Vegan and Gluten Free July 4th Recipes featuring Sweet Leaf Tea

As our country’s Independence Day approaches and you celebrate with friends and family, please share the story below and take one minute to watch the important video.

Chris and his wife, Debra, were hiking in the woods one morning near their home in Medford, Mass., when Chris suddenly collapsed.  He was unresponsive, so Debra called 9-1-1 and began CPR.  Debra had never taken a CPR class, but had recently heard a radio news story about the new Hands-Only™ CPR technique. She remembered that the correct rhythm for chest compressions was the same as the beat of the Bee Gees’ song “‘Stayin’ Alive.”’  She pumped on Chris’ chest for 15 minutes until the ambulance arrived and paramedics delivered a shock to his heart with an AED.  Chris was treated at the hospital and underwent angioplasty.  Now he’s alive, thanks to Debra and her CPR. The Baders’ share their story in the hopes that others will not be afraid to take action in an emergency.

The American Heart Association has made CPR even easier so anyone can help save a life. Hands-Only CPR – CPR using only chest compressions – has been proven to be as effective as CPR with chest compressions and rescue breathing.  Anyone can learn to save a life. And everyone should.  Please take a moment to view this short instructional video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSgmledxFe8&feature=relmfu.

 

Make a difference today, pay it forward,  share the video, have a great Holiday and let’s remember the words of  Abraham Lincoln:  “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.”
