The futurist: Disrupting health care

Great article! I personally want to know more about the use of Cochlear implants to correct balance issues. By Lisa Lehndorff on 2014 10 20

Why the phone still matters

Woo hoo Sam. Another great article! I agree with this ...communication (and sales) only happen when people engage one-on-one. Pick up the damn phone and connect. I see so many companies investing in social media and not a penny on training people on how to engage and effectively communicate with today's new consumer...online AND offline. The companies that do invest in both, social media and sales training are the one reaping the rewards. Thanks for sharing your wisdom!!! Liz By Liz Wendling on 2014 10 20

Growing old isn't for sissies

There are more substantive questions to prompt: Why does your parent need to move? Is there a cognitive issue? Is there a physical safety issue? Are they in the same town or state? Has your parent developed a will, power of attorney documents and designated a family member to assist with these affairs? Are you aware of a KELS exam to assess cognition and personal safety? This validates too the ability to self-administer medications as well as the ability to prepare food, eat it on time, and store it safely. Does the elder care facility offer sliding services for someone who has a cognitive decline but is not yet ready for memory care? An assisted care facility is not a nursing home and does not provide that level of care. Who are the local physician care services and do they visit the facility; do they have a good reputation?

The No. 1 leading sales-killer

Those negative thoughts and lots of head trash get to my sales people every time. Our Monday morning meetings sound like the one you described. I know this is something that is too big to ignore. Thanks for the reminder. Janice By Janice on 2014 10 13

Top nine scariest things about running a business

Great Article. As a small business owner myself (this is my third) I think #5 is the most challenging. When you are running a small business it seems like nobody is as passionate as you are about the business. The staffing and management have been the biggest challenges for us. Thanks again for the article By Glen Weinberg: Colorado Hard money lender on 2014 10 13

The No. 1 leading sales-killer

Nice job Liz. I just shared this with my team in Colorado and our others 4 offices in the US. We call that "stuff" you talk about head trash as well. We joke around the office about taking out the trash. So thanks for the laugh, the reminder and your words of wisdom. Steve By steve on 2014 10 13
