Are You Aware Of Errors Needing Your Attention?


Attract the Right Job Or Clientele: Every endeavor requires that you be aware of errors needing your attention. Unfortunately, only some of us are motivated to do better. “Today’s disaster can be tomorrow’s silver lining.” My Story We each envision the best possible outcome as we attempt to build our business. Most of us know that not everything will work out as we expect. Two factors make all the difference: The motivation to review the errors  Adjust the plan for future endeavors Throwing our hands up in the air and saying, ‘oh well, next,’ will never improve our game. Instead, be aware of errors  needing your attention.  Make the time and effort to learn from the poor experience.  As othe...

Do You Realize The Similarities Between Improv and Effective Selling?


Attract the Right Job or Clientele: What might happen if trainers were to recognize the similarities between Improv and effective selling?  Seeking new jobs was an annual event for me.  Upon being hired, the formal training followed.  I would cringe at the thought of needing to attend another  class.  The instruction was the embodiment of ‘Boring.’    My Story      Improvisation has always captured my admiration. The actors are able to instantly answer questions.  A touch of humor has the audience enjoying the show.  We hear loud applause when the actors on stage finish the show.   The parallel is, salespeople need to be laser sharp when meeting with clients. Flexibility for effective sellin...

Pinky and Fiona Update


I don’t have much to say except they are confused about outside and inside. No matter what happens it is either too cold or too hot outside for them. Inside is much nicer. In their eyes, it’s luxurious.   We can leave them outside for an hour and they will either head for the emergency puppy pads in the bathroom or, if they don’t feel like climbing stairs, they might leave little puddles near the door. On the unlikely chance that they make it to the pad, they put their front paws on the pad while their backside is hanging off anyway. I guess they get points for trying, but it’s not that cute. Or fun to clean up. Still, they are loved. Bunches. Anyway, the weather will change but it won’t mak...

Do You Believe Left-Handed People Are Different?


Attract the Right Job or Clientele: The recent news about diversity lead me to believe that left-handed people are different.  Upon being handed a sports article about left-handed sports figures, it became my must-read. Written by Sam Fortier, for The Washington Post. Sam asks the question, ‘Why aren’t there any left-handed quarterbacks in the NFL?’ According to Matt Leinert, a former lefty quarterback, states his kind is an extinct species.       I’m one who is left-handed.  Accordingly, I instantly connected the sports news to business and career.   At the same time, I wondered w hy do others consider the left-handed people as different?   My Story   Growing up, hearing scorn from others w...

Land of the Sbilfs: Turn back time in the Carnian Alps


This piece was originally published in the June-July 2013 issue of Dream of Italy under the title “Simple Pleasures in Friuli’s Carnian Alps.” Hidden in the mountains of northern Friuli–Venezia Giulia are the seven valleys, twenty-eight villages, and 121 hamlets of Carnia. In this remote area where Italy meets Austria, Alpine farmhouses dot the landscape, cows graze in verdant pastures, and time almost seems to stand still. Rugged peaks and long, treacherous roads have served to separate Carnia from the rest of Friuli, and it is precisely because of this isolation that the people have maintained many of their deep-rooted customs. We begin our journey in Tolmezzo, the gateway to the Carnian A...

How Do You Solve Puzzling Problems?


Attract the Right Job Or Clientele: Advancing to different stages of life, we face the question of how do you solve puzzling problems? The first step is to relax in a spot away from distractions. Contemplate all that is on your mind.  As this becomes a common practice, you will find similar methods apply to the work environment.   My Story   Once again, I’m referring to an old Seinfeld episode.  George Costanza admitted whatever he decides to do never works out.  So from that point forward, he will do the opposite.  The delivery is funny; however, there is a gem in his thinking.   Sometimes we are so set in our way that we don’t stop to analyze what isn’t working.  Those who make an effort t...

Summer Collaborations


The following poem is written by a famous poet who inspired me many years ago. To me, his poems are like snapshots. This one, a type of summer photo. While folks are at the beach, or visiting iconic landmarks, I am enjoying a seasonal harvest of fruitfulness.  This Is Just To Say BY  WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS I have eaten The plums in the photo came from my neighbor's yard. They reminded me of this short, succinct poem by William Carlos Williams.  the plums that were in the icebox and which you were probably saving for breakfast Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold A week before, my generous neighbor gave us apricots, which I made into jars of delicious, jam. The plums were made...

Are You Open To Varying Ideas?


Attract the Right Job or Clientele: Sales are easily lost when we are not open to varying ideas.  Planning meetings offer multiple opportunities for agreement. Unfortunately, the lack of agreement frequently delays potential progress.    Corporate business meetings and politics mirror one another.  The question becomes, do we harass other parties or seek to find a solution? In the United States., we have ten presidential candidates debating the same issues from varying angles.  Each candidate can stick to their unique thought.  Or, together, they can build a robust approach for solving problems.   Corporate and client meetings face similar decisions.  The strong desire to be the person in th...

Impatient Characters


Sometimes, the story is carried by dialogue, and at other times the story is breezing through required narrative. Then something happens. You are thinking about a certain way to phrase something and can’t come up with the exact way to describe it. What shade of blue? There are hundreds to choose from. Cobalt? Turquoise? Cornflower?  Are the  trees the color of junipers or multi-colored like jasper? Is it a golden or yellow sunset?   Pink or peach flowers? Lavender or Lilac? Sometimes, the details can be left to the reader’s imagination. Everyone knows that roses are red. But not your roses. These are special roses and you have to figure out how to describe each petal. The way they might glis...

What Aren’t You Hearing?

HubSpot Logo
Attract the Right Job Or Clientele: Recent and past experiences produce the question, what aren’t you hearing? The listening piece is about using all of your senses to hear, see, feel, and intuitively contemplate which actions to take next. Sales excellence requires almost a meditative state for analyzing the worst and best actions for moving forward. My Story What we analyze from all interactions are essential steps for business development and successful selling. Those motivated to succeed also willingly accept feedback, particularly the negative commentary. Whether right or wrong, the negativity points to where our focus is to be laser-sharp. Only then can we implement better decisions. L...
