When's The Last Time You Were Wowed?

Today, we live in a very apathetic society. If the service isn’t terrible, we’ll probably return to the same business. But is that good enough for you? When was the last time you were wowed? Granted, it doesn’t happen every day, but there are those rare occasions when we are surprised by somebody’s great act of legendary customer service.

While serving at a Red Lobster restaurant, Josh Packer was taking care of a husband, a wife, and their son. After dinner, the little boy wanted...

The Present is Your Gift for Changing the Future.

Is there anything about your life that you would change if you could? Most of my coaching clients express regret or remorse over mistakes they’ve made in the past. We’ve all made them. They’re necessary in order for us to grow and gain experience. Some of us carry those regrets with us throughout our entire lives but the good news is, there is a better way.

While we can’t undo our past, we can learn from it. When you make a mistake...

Count Your Blessings, Not Your Problems.

Let’s face it, if you’re a business owner, or if you’re in sales, things are not always going to go your way. There is no sense in counting up all your problems because there will always be more and you’ll never get finished. What I encourage you to do instead is to count your blessings.

A while ago, I faced a downturn in my business that I had not seen in many years. I couldn’t believe how difficult things got. Yet, even through the tough ...

Are You Super-Responsive?

My wife and I checked into a hotel in Harrisonburg, Virginia, not far from the Skyline Drive National Park. As we made our way to our room, I noticed that there was a lot of debris lining the edges of the hallway. Most of it appeared to be the result of a lack of thorough vacuuming. After I settled in, I went to the front desk and...

Living To Tell.

I was living the “good life.” I was happily married, owned a thriving business, and had a great support system of family and friends – everything I had prayed and worked for in my younger days.

Suddenly, that all changed. I found myself divorced and fighting for the survival of the business I worked so hard to build from the ground up. Everything snowballed from there. I entered a dark period in my life filled with depression that made me withdraw from the very network that would have been able to help me the most....

Sounds Like A Plan.

I recently attended a couple of networking mixers. Most of the people there were new contacts to me. I spoke with two different people who told me that they had just started new businesses five weeks earlier or less. The first person I spoke with had started a new HVAC business four weeks earlier. He was 43 years old and said he had a lot of experience in that field. He had recently gotten tired of working for other people and decided to go out on his own. I asked him if he had a business plan. He said...

Are You Inspiring Your Employees?

One of the biggest dilemmas business owners who have employees face is keeping them inspired enough to give their best to their customers. This is where true leadership comes in. It’s up to you as the owner, department head, or leader to make sure that people understand that they have a purpose and what it is. They also need to see how it fits into the big picture.

Employees are usually the most motivated...

The Day I Found Out I Was In Sales.

I want to tell you how I found out I was in sales. I had been working as a printing-industry recruiter for two years at the time. One of the people I placed in a job called to ask me if his benefits would start sooner than the 90-day probationary period. I checked my notes about his offer of employment and found that that was not the case. He said, “I asked the human resource manager, who said, ‘Dave Romeo is a super-salesman and if he told you that getting your benefits sooner, there’s nothing I can do about it.’”

First of all, I would...

People Are Watching You.

When I was 11 years old, my next-door neighbor and I wanted to take advantage of an extra heavy dumping of snow on Long Island. We asked neighboring homeowners if they wanted their snow shoveled. At the first house we approached, an elderly man agreed to pay us each two dollars to take care of his driveway and sidewalk. Although it didn’t seem like much for a couple of 11-year-olds, we were thrilled to get our first job.

As I finished up the man’s front porch, he opened the door slightly and...

Get Organized Now!

If there’s one thing that entrepreneurs and salespeople have in common, it’s keeping everything organized when you’re trying to run a business and make sales. It’s almost been a maxim that the better the salesperson, the more he or she hates paperwork. You can put me in that category as well. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t do better — and it doesn’t have to be painful either.

Most people...
