" Are Your Family " - As the Family goes, so goes the Society in which we Live...

 



Times like these: In a generation past, shows like 'Father Knows Best' and 'Leave It to Beaver' were popular and reflected solid American families. Do you remember them? How about the more recent 'Bill Cosby Show'? Each of these shows consistently…

" 9-1-1 Memorial "

 

The tenth anniversary of the Islamic jihadist attacks on New York on 9/11 will soon be upon us. Faith in God sustained millions of Americans on that day and the days that followed. Americans looked to God and to their spiritual leaders for comfort and guidance.

But New York mayor Michael Bloomberg has banned all clergy and all prayer from the upcoming 9/11 memorial service planned to commemorate the tragic events of that day.

In times of crisis, …

" Breaking through Roadblocks to Change "

 

What happens the first time you try a new selling technique? It's usually uncomfortable and doesn't go as smoothly as it did in the seminar or how you imagined it would go. Often it results in a less than satisfying outcome. There are physiological reasons for this discomfort and awkwardness.



When you see or hear something new, your brain goes through a conscious process of evaluating whether that new behavior has any potential payoff, and you form an expectation of what…

" News about Unions " - Keeping yourself Educated...

 

Picture a local "Mom and Pop" store in your area.



The business is a staple of the community. The owners know every customer's name. The employees love their jobs.



The company has never broken the law. It's never even been charged.



None of this matters to President Barack Obama's National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).



The NLRB -- far exceeding its authority -- is now forcing its way into private-sector workplaces nationwide, even if workers don't…

" Fantastic Follow-Up seals the deal "

 

After perfecting your follow up skills, here are 5 tips for getting to that deal you've worked so hard for:

 

1) Be sure the prospect has given you the buying signals before you attempt to close.

2) Talk in terms of when. "When we work together on this..."

3) Confirm the points of the sale - how much, what needs to happen, etc.

4) Ask about any obstacles - "Do you see any obstacles that would prevent us from moving…

" The Nine P's of Winning "

 

What it takes to get to the top-and the inspirational, winning words that, when woven into our speech, exemplify each principle:

 

1) People-Centeredness- more than just being a people person, this is about getting to know and value others on a deeper level. People centered winners use phrases such as, "I'm listening," "I hear you," "I get it," and "you decide."

2) Paradigm…

" Check Negativity at the Door " - How to Win in the Workplace by using Powerful, Positive Words...Part 2

 

In the beginning...

 

Partner(s), employees and day-to-day business contacts have come to know you and expect you to act in a particular manner, for better or worse. Those "glass half empty" kinds of people who bounce into the shop with a new perspective on the power of the spoken word should be careful not to cause chaos by springing "the new positive you" on others unexpectedly. Ease into any "for-the-better" transformation. Learning to use positive speech will take…

" How Much Is "IF" Worth? "



 

Have you stopped to think how much the word "IF" is worth? Judging by the way many professionals talk, it must be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. For example:

  • "If I had only gotten there sooner..."
  • "If our…

" Check Negativity at the Door " - How to Win in the Workplace by using Powerful, Positive Words...

 

" A man's self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his word's he must be satisfied. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it."  Proverbs 18:20-21

 

Your words have power in them - what you say determines your destiny as much as what you think. Could the everyday words uttered around the decorated apparel/promotional products shop be the biggest threat to long-term success?…

" Fewer Blunders, More Sales " - Part 2

 

Missteps from the profitability path...

 

11) Not knowing the difference between you're and your. Misspelled words and poor grammar make you look bad and lazy.

12) Delivering your sales message, not their buying message. Why would you be making a "sales presentation" without understanding why the prospect may want to buy?

13) Making excuses for what went wrong. Not taking responsibility for what you could have done to change it.

14) Failure to talk…

Today's Inspirational Quote!

"You must accept that you might fail; then, if you do your
best and still don't win, at least you can be satisfied that
you've tried. If you don't accept failure as a possibility,
you don't set high goals, you don't branch out, you don't try
- you don't take the risk."

" Live Today as if it were your Last "

 

 

One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each name.





Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down.





It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as the students left the…
