A new Friday focus for my Examiner Page. Every Friday I will highlight a communication blunder of the week. It may be something I read or saw in the media, it may be a student of mine, it may be my children, or it may by YOU. So check out my Examiner site on Fridays and enjoy (and maybe learn something).
This week we received a caller from a seller. She was referred to us by a realtor whom I never heard of nor dealt with. How the realtor came up with my name, I have no idea. She told the seller, (her sister-in-law) that she heard we can do deals that others can’t. I didn’t buy the house, it is still listed on the MLS, but she and I will be in contact over time. When that listing expires, I will work the deal out so everyone wins. And when that happens, I will send the Realtor a nice gift certificate so she can take her husband out for a nice meal. I think she will remember us, don’t you?
If you really like a person, then it does not matter if they have issues. If your feelings are genuine then whatever the hiv positive dating person is was has or believes will not deter the other persons judgement. You will accept the whole person, which includes the package that they come with as well. For we are all unique and we all come with something.
No Top 10 Video List would be complete without some political sattire. In this video, Columbia Business School’s Dean, Glenn Hubbard, sings about wanting Alan Greenspan’s job that went instead to New Fed Chair Ben Bernanke. This is a really funny parody created by Columbia Business School students.
The pixels you buy will be displayed on the homepage permanently. The homepage will not change. Using some of the money I make from the site, I guarantee to keep it online for at least 5 years, but hopefully much longer. I want it to become a kind of internet time capsule. So, in the long run, I believe the pixels will offer good value. You will have a piece of internet history!
Add value – Where possible add value. If you were promoting a hiv positive dating website I would recommend you think of a killer bonus package, like “how to create a perfect profile” or “50 awesome first date tips.” These free little extras will often be the difference between making and losing a sale.
Twenty years ago we were still forming the technology to allow us to dial up on our huge, bulky computers, now we walk around with cell phones that can do everything but wash our car. And I’m pretty sure that will be next. So, if so much has changed, why would the way we handle our money be the same?
The mutual kidding that goes on between friends was obvious when I asked each one what it was like when playing against each other as members of different club or travel teams. After being teammates for so long, both admitted that it felt a little strange when facing each other as members of opposite teams.
