Customers For Life

#accelerator Sep 17, 2018

I once spoke at a management conference for Brian Rowntree, one of the most successful automobile dealers in Canada.  Brian’s sincerity, his care and concern for his employees impressed me. I was equally impressed by his sincere desire to give the best possible service to his customers. Brian quoted Carl Sewell from his book Customers For Life.  I decided to get a copy. Then, last week I was visiting with Dean Cooke and Martin Slimming at Bantam books, and they gave me a copy.

Listen to what Harvey Mackay, author of Swim With The Sharks had to say about Customers For Life. I quote, “Sewell’s fundamentals are to an entrepreneur what the three R’s are to a teacher. This ingenious book should be required reading.”

Wayne Calloway, former Chairman and C.E.O. for PepsiCo Inc said, "If Carl Sewell’s common sense were more common, we’d have a lot more happy customers and workers in the world.  The lessons he has learned selling...

Getting Clients by Giving Talks: Strategies to Effective Selling from Stage

The time is ripe for selling at seminars EVERYWHERE.

Often I will speak to several thousand people on a 2-week tour. A certain percentage will buy at my event, and others will buy later. It would be foolish for me to try to sell those people one-on-one. If you can sell to 1000's in a week, why would you attempt the ancient, out-dated method of one-to-one selling?

Any seminar, workshop, speech, or panel is a great opportunity to:

      • attract prospects to you in a cost-efficient manner
      • build a solid, profit-making database in a hurry
      • make a sales presentation to hundreds at a time, instead of one on one.
      • get the publicity that sells your product and services to people who can't attend and to enhance your professional image
      • to get people in the audience to become paying clients?

How To Fill The Room:

      • Hold it at a strategic location. Parking and proximity are important.
      • Place ads on Facebook, Instagram, etc....

READY, FIRE, AIM!

Stop Aiming and Start Doing

Research conclusively shows that people must learn to handle time better.

Our own research and that of leading universities from America indicates that sales management correctly assesses a major reason for poor productivity to the lack of time management skills within their sales forces.  In particular, procrastination and interruption top the list of personal productivity killers.

Here are some methods being used by major corporation to curb the time problems.

Procrastinate On Procrastination

A doctor turned to his patient and said, "Bill, I have some bad news and some worse news."  "Hold on now doctor", said the concerned patient, "I can handle bad news and good news but bad news and worse news?"  The doctor asked which one he should share first.  Bill wanted the bad news first.  "Well", the doctor said sadly, "the results of all the tests are in and you only have 24 hours to live."  "What?  That's the bad news what...

Self-Mastery

TURNING YOURSELF ON TO SELF-DISCIPLINE

STRATEGY 1: Master Your Habits

Controlling Bad Habits - That statement is both true and false. True in the sense that before we know it something that we thought we could easily master or control is now much more difficult. It is a false statement because I do not believe any habit is unbreakable. Every habit can be subjected to our control. Controlling bad habits leads the list for ways to save time. This is where we begin in the process of conquering the Operational Success-Blockers. It is the foundation upon which we build solid time management structures. Therefore before the discussion of time-saving tips we need to develop the skill of controlling our habits.

Show me any person with a strong sense of self-control and I'll show you a winner. Conversely, a loser has little control.

The really high achievers in life have a common denominator - they have mastered their habits. Take a look for a minute at the really poor achievers in life;...

You're A Star

#gerryology Sep 15, 2018

Remember, YOU ARE A STAR!

Hey, it's Gerry I'm in Bucharest Romania. My thought of the day has to do with that star. When I saw that star I thought of you. Listen, we're all stars. We may not have developed all stardom qualities yet. We may have let failures squash our star. But really we have to control the inner critic who tends to think we're not good enough, not smart enough, not the right age, not the right gender. Listen, believe me about this: you are a star, and don't ever forget it!

No More Complaining

#gerryology Sep 14, 2018

A Complainer never added anything to the world, except more Complainers! 

My thought for today is: Make a deal with yourself that there will be no complaining today. We all have things to complain about. Try a day with no complaining, just let it go. Don't give fuel to it, just let it go. No complaining, that's my challenge for you today!

MAGGIE GEORGOPOULOS Gets Featured in Forbes.com Article

Never underestimate the power of inspiration. Maggie Georgopoulos, author of Up the Ladder in a Skirt, clearly knows that.

As a global business coach and inspirational speaker, Maggie has inspired business leaders and entrepreneurs around the globe, particularly helping women succeed in traditionally male-dominated businesses and industries. And, as a leading authority on women achieving success, Maggie has been, and remains, a highly sought-out source by various journalists and prestigious media publications such as Forbes Magazine.

If you are featured by a publication, it will generally come in one of two ways from the reporter if they’re contacting you from a press release. I have had journalists both email me and call me. The key to be featured is being available.” – Maggie Georgopoulos

In early 2017, Maggie recalls, she received an email asking if she would be able to speak to a journalist before 2 p.m. that very same day.

I was in London...

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

 

While exploring a tourist site in Malaysia recently I came upon a modern-day assembly line. I say ‘modern-day’ only because it happened recently. Truthfully, the assembly line was antiquated and it had no machines or technology.

The goal for this 10-man team was to take a pile of old bricks – thousands of old bricks and move them from an outside location, down some stairs to an inside location where they could be re-purposed into a new structure or be a part of a new wall.

Eight men all had the same job, catching the brick that was thrown to them and tossing it to the next man. The other two guys had slightly different responsibilities. The first guy in line had to grab a brick from the enormous pile and toss it to guy #2.

Number two passed it to #3 and so on until it got to guy #10.  He received the tossed brick from #9 and had to place it in a semi-neat pile so that the bricklayer could efficiently grab it and construct the wall. (When he eventually...
