Resilience. The key to success during unprecedented times. Part 3: Share your experience.

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that 2020 was a year for the books. Although we had high hopes for 2021, breakthrough cases of COVID-19 and the Delta variant have potentially slowed plans for a full and complete return to normalcy. Forced outside our business-as-usual comfort zone, we have…

Are you ready for the big end-of-the-year push?

You can hear it in the school buses making their rounds again. See it in the first leaves that are just starting to drop outside your window. And if those signs were too subtle, you’ll know it’s fall because pumpkin spice is everywhere!  In our industry, the changeover from summer…

People Who Sit in Front of a Screen All Day Want to Leaf Through Paper in the Evening

On the contrary: printed advertising even celebrated a small renaissance. Reasons for this include screen fatigue among advertisers and the…

Part 2 in an ongoing multi-part series: Assess every step.

As I discussed in my last installment, this past year has certainly been a unique and challenging one, to say the least. Perhaps what made it most difficult was the suddenness of the changes that we faced. But this also acted as motivator for every salesperson to assess the importance…

Although the calendar indicates we have only officially been in summer for a few weeks, many of us have been enjoying summer activities since at least Memorial Day. Whether your idea of a perfect summer day is spending it at the beach, the pool, a barbecue, in the garden, or…
