Several years ago I worked with some salespeople and brainstormed some ideas to unleash their ambition. We invested a day away from their sales duties to discuss the habits, attitudes, techniques and direction of the top producers.

Celebrating 20 Years

I had the privilege of joining Strauser Nature's Helpers in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, last week for their 20th Anniversary Celebration. They understand the importance of doing the things that help create the culture they need for their business while looking for ways to create a better future for everyone there.  For the celebration, they brought in their vendors, had customers share their perspective, listened to the owner give an overview of the past 20 years, and let the employees share funny stories from the past.
