I always advocate and I firmly believe loyal customers are your best advertising.  If you are not a sole practitioner then loyal customers will be the result of engaged employees.  These are employees that feel empowered and take personal ownership in the success of the company.This is a personal story and a testimonial to a heating and air conditioning contractor and one employee.  During the stormy weather the power in our Florida house went off.  I noticed that after it went back on my cameras were working but the connection to the thermostat was lost.  My neighbor said my compressor was not running.  I need the air conditioning to run when I am not there to avoid mold.My brother who lives nearby came over and was able to establish the Internet connection again.  We turned it on to c...

As many of you know I love spending time at my Florida home.  This is one time that I am glad that I am in New York.  However, my thoughts are with everyone who is in the hurricane's path.  It seems to be moving slowly which could be bad but turning toward the Atlantic which could be good news.I know everyone is doing their preparation and many have their storm shutters up.  If have a person who does it for me.He says he is burning the midnight oil and I see in my ring camera that he hasn't gotten to me yet.  Hope he gets there soon.  Everyone, please stay safe!

I enjoy mixing up work and play.  Although I can't seem to totally unplug I do enjoy a change of scenery for Phyllis and me.  For the next few weeks I will be working and playing at my southern headquarters.  For purposes of Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 contest this is my secon hometown.  More about that in another post.Up north we have four seasons.  In Florida there are two seasons--the dry season and the rainy season which is now.  You have to plan your outside activities accordingly.Boating is my destination for tomorrow as long as the weather holds out.  Otherwise, I will be doing something else. Now if you are a business in Southern Florida and you would  like to grow I would be glad to talk to you.Grant SchneiderPerformance Development Strategies 914-953-4458

Last week Phyllis and I had the opportunity to enjoy a few weeks at our home in Florida.  The weather was really great.  I have always enjoyed the water and hoped to get a boat sometime.  I was really fortunate to find out from one of my Florida neighbors about The Freedom Boat Club.As members we have access to all of the boats which includes quite a variety of boats for the Intracoastal Waterway as well as the Ocean.We went out five times on the Intracoastal and explored the islands and other sights along the way. Next time we are down we will take out an ocean boat.  Can't wait until next time. Do you have a business in Southern Florida that you would like to take to the next level?Contact us to learn moreor call 914-953-4488

It seems like during most of our 40 years of marriage my wife Phyllis and I had to work but not together.  We went different directions and we took care of our kids.  We worked at different careers and didn't worry that much after the kids were grown.I am grateful for the time we have together now.  We started having date nights.  We look forward to one of them each week.  But since we have purchased our home in Florida we have deliberately scheduled time block for fun. We schedule about 5 or 6 visits per year.  This has really given us very good work life balance.This week is one of those times.  We are enjoying the warm sun in Florida as opposed to the damp 40 degree weather in New York.I tried to do a selfe with both of us but it did not work out.  We were enjoying the late afternoon...

If you are looking for great burgers and local beer try Hop Cat of Port St. Lucie.  We ate here last Friday night.  Hop Cat is located in the Tradition Community in Port St. Lucie.  This location just opened a few months ago and it is the first one in the state of Florida.The restaurant company started in Grand Rapids Michigan and has locations in the Midwest.When we entered the hostess gave us two menus-one for beer and the other for food.First of all there are many Florida local beers and we chose the one brewed by Hoplife Brewing Company in Port St. Lucie. The menu is tempting and would not be for a person watching a diet.  We both had stuffed loaded hamburgers.  They were good.  We did not eat much the next day.  Along with the burgers you get Hop Cat's signature Crack Fries and pic...
