Profiting from play

Thanks "CFO!" While we can't put "fun" on the balance sheet, it is a desirable asset! By Todd Ordal on 2014 07 31

Tech startup: PrintReleaf

@Mike - thanks for your comments. I clicked on your link, but there was no text in the article; maybe it's for subscribers only. As for PrintReleaf, I obviously disagree. Planting trees does A LOT in the 'real world'...especially given where we're planting them. Through tree planting, we provide jobs, restore water tables, rebuild local economies, all while certifiably reforesting paper. About only 1 out of every 10 sheets of paper is certified for reforestation. We, along with our partners and customers, are changing that and making an impact. You are correct when you cite that forests are cut down every day and others are planted. Unfortunately, net-net, on global scale (not 'National'), we've cut down far more than we've put back...and that's where our value proposition takes hold. Feel free to contact me at jdarragh@printreleaf.com. By Jordan Darragh on 2014 07 31

Stop those hang-ups!

Perfect timing, I am of those that will hang up perhaps in less than 1 minute. Why is it so hard for a "cold caller" to summarize to me what they are selling in three or less sentences when I directly ask them to do that within the 1st minute on the phone? I promise not to waste even one more minute of our joint time if I do not wish to hear more about what is being offered. But how do I not waste time if the caller cannot in nutshell (3 or less sentences) tell me what is being offered? After I know what the “nutshell” is then I can decide if I want to crack it open or not, pass it along to someone else I know or maybe later have someone get back to me.

Stop those hang-ups!

Time article. I've received the same call for three days from the same company/solicitor for services that I don't want or need. They've been pushy, rude and inattentive. Even if I wanted or needed their services, they would not earn my business. By CFO on 2014 07 31

Stop those hang-ups!

Once again Sam you nailed it. Sad thing is that the "bad" technique you talked about is STILL being taught and used. Then sales people wonder why they cant't get people to call them back or respond in a positive way. Great article. By liz wendling on 2014 07 31
