A good night sleep

When I woke Carsen up early this morning "Feels like when I was sleeping my head didn't touch anything" Now that is a good night sleep

A fun time golfing

Golfing with Bob from the print shop and Mike and Boomer from the radio station at the Chamber golf tournament. I will say that 90 Plus is a bit warm for this time of the year but still had a great time. We will not speak of the score.

Setting Expectations

Is probably one of the most forgotten steps in selling. Have you ever had customers that when your project is done and you meet with them or send them a survey the installation went poorly? Many times I see companies try and diagnose why their technical staff failed. However they should be looking at where the sale starts, with sales. Were the following expectations set; Time to install The bill (What exactly will it look like and what is covered) Where are points that may be problematic What things may need to be extra? When will you start? How will the process start? How long will I be down? Who do I call if there is a problem? What will be ongoing expenses, warranty? Just a few things to look at when setting expectations.

I want to be...

Carsen had career day at school. He wants to be a Baseball player because they rock! They will make $1,000 a week. Not too bad for a 6 year old. There was a wide variety of jobs; Fireman Policeman Animal Doctor Nurse Doctor It was nice to hear why most of the kids want to be some of those things. "Because I want to help people/animals" Deep down that is why I do what I do. I want to help people understand Technology (My passion) Yet, none of the kids want to be a Salesman. Bummer. More work to do.

Award winning writer

It took me into my 30's to be published. Carsen does it at age 6. First in his age bracket.
