Getting caught up.

OK I have been a little behind and it has been a little while since a post. So lets get caught up.

I had a chance to have dinner and see my parents this week. Getting caught up with Microsoft and the guys from HTG in KC I spent the night in Topeka where I grew up. It is a bit wierd sleeping in the room that you grew up in. It is not quite the same. The room has been changed (A wall was taken out and a closet in the bathroom added) However the sounds are the same. My parents have large and heavy mirror closet doors that make a unique sound when opened. It is a sound I will not forget. Other than that the birds in eastern KS are loud in the morning.

It was great catching up with Mike from MN and Joddey from IA. Mike does not read my blog. So for you Mike...You are a jerk....

Joddey is a great guy!

That will teach him.

Things are definitely picking up and that is great. I have to travel next week and it takes a little while for me to get in the groove. I will keep you updated!

What if?

There are times that you need to ask what if. When safety is a concern or your family well being. However there are times that you have to jump in. I heard someone not set an appointment because of many excuses. What if the weather is bad (Reschedual) What if they have no needs (How will you find out) What if there is more opportunity somewhere else (you have to start somewhere)

So get the what if out and jump in.

2010 filling up!

To be honest, nothing feels better than a full calendar. Customer appointments, meetings (Productive ones) and solving problems. I looked today at the calendar and I am booked through the first week of Feb. It makes the weeks go fast and one thing never fails. If the calendar is full sales happen. Maybe I should be evaluated on how full my calendar is versus what the numbers are. OK maybe not.
