Building That Bridge to More Closeable Sales   It is said that you can only begin selling after you have convinced the prospect that you are indeed their pal and you want the best for them.  In fact, often times talking about your product or service to quickly will derail the whole process leaving your customer with no future interest. If you don’t care about them, they in turn will not show interest in you or your service.  Below I have outlined a few thoughts to keep in mind as you move toward your next sale.     Keep a healthy personality:  This is something described as getting along with the greatest number of different types of people.    The friendship factor:  As you know customers are spoiled, demanding, and disloyal, and insist on being treated like royalty before buying, howe...

Everyone CAN Have Their Own Treasure Island I actually lived on Treasure Island in Boynton Beach, Florida As I look back at my stay here in S. Florida, which will be a quick 10 years coming up in July. I was reminiscing about my first little house on Treasure Island, located in Boynton Beach. It was a modest gem on the water which the community is surrounded by. In essence an island and a small enclave of homes built in the late 60’s early 70’s. The location is just west of I95 but east of Congress, off of Old Boynton Beach Blvd. The whole road was recently widen and the old wooden bridge removed for the new & improved version. Below are a few shots of the area back in “03”.

Shot of the Week Club...Disgusting When you have been in the business like myself for almost 28 years you tend to see a few interesting things. I was on a recent damage claim not long ago and this was sitting in the breakfast area. Notice the table standing nearby. I don’t know about you, but there is something about eating and looking at this, that screams out I just lost my appetite. I would love to hear from the folks that stop by what you have noticed in your travels, that struck you a little odd or disgusting.
