Tall Tales in the Retail World: Sales and Management Training

I am a vertically enhanced female which I normally see as a benefit, except when I am trying to buy clothing.  Most of the clothing options for women do not come with a choice for inseam or length.  This often leaves me in the dressing room wondering if I can pull of this dress being too short or do these jeans look like capris or a fashion faux pas.  I am…

Auto Dealers – It’s Time To Get Ahead

Sales are down a little and you’re looking for a way to get an edge on the competition. You have looked at many ways of bringing in revenue, which will depend on how many customers you can get out to the dealership. Why aren’t the traditional methods working like they used to?

Making It Over The Wall

When I was a teenager, I had to have some extensive surgery that landed me in a wheel chair for a few months.  Recently, one of my physical therapist from that adventure found me on Facebook and was compelled to share his story of that short part of my life.  He was a new therapist when he took on my case and had heard how hard teenagers can be in cases like mine.  He braced himself for a…

Social Media Isn’t About The Networks… Not Really
