NARI : Before & After

I was invited to speak to the Central Ohio chapter of NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry), and in preparation I had the opportunity to attend their annual awards ceremony last December. One of the speakers at that event was their national president, Paul Zuch. A quote from Paul’s time at the podium immediately cut-through the […]

Red Rubber Ball At Work

The Red Rubber Ball At Work is an excellent companion to Rules of the Red Rubber Ball! I was expecting to be a more of the original (which I also loved) but the author slightly shifted the approach in this wholly original addition to the Red Rubber Ball series. I thought it was going to […]

The Opportunity Knocks Form

I believe most prospects are under the impression that if they say “no” to an offer, that you’ll just go back to the office, file your proposal in a drawer and go home — they don’t seem to realize that even if THEY said “no,” someone will eventually say “yes.” To make them confront this […]

The phrase doesn’t actually spell out the fact that it was the cat’s own curiosity that did him in. Perhaps it is a human’s curiosity that puts […]
