Wild Spring Nites Bring Fresh White Stuff Weekly In April

April 22, 2017 – We have had a few hints of spring in Marquette with nicer weekends.  But over the past two weeks, it seems like Monday is a real MOnday MOnday.  So Tuesday morning we are snow packed. But then it’s all better Wednesday morning with a Sunny Sunrise. Plus it’s time to save money on the weeks Shopping Show at 9am.  This 24 hour swing though from 63 degrees to 33 is a real bender for the mind.

Newberry Motors Owner Kevin Vanetta On The Move

Newberry – Thursday April 20, 2017  – I had a fun and enlightening tour of the brand new Body Shop in Newberry. This is a State Of The Art Collission Repair Facility that is just about completed at Newberry Motors. Owner Kevin Vanetta has invested heavily in the old bowling alley next door and has created a safe, worker friendly Collission Repair Facility that will make your car look factory again after a fender bender. Good things are happening at Newberry Motors. Watch for grand opening in Newberry very soon.

Bad Things Can Cause A Greater Good So Persevere

They nicknamed me “Teflon Todd” several years ago because difficult things just seem to slide off. I REST ON THIS PHILOSOPHY and THIS IS MY BASIS…Bad things can cause a greater good.

Many times in a business relationship, especially with a boss and employee, we don’t know why? We don’t know why because many times as an employee, can’t see the Boss’s picture, not seeing the company’s end from the beginning. With that said, the Boss is not always right either.

Jimmy Stewart’s, It’s A Wonderful Life, basically conveys that our life is wonderful because we have an impact on other people and we don’t even know what that is. We don’t even know what the greater good our actions have caused others.

We do know, given the ripple effect, it’s powerful when we engage. Apply this to a client as a Sales Pro… By Visiting, Talking, Engaging, Inspiring, Motivating, forming a Contract of  Agreement, performing an Advertising Campaign, getting him business – this is all very powerful. We do that at Great Lakes Radio daily.

Sometime as workers, we always think it’s always about us, and really in our day to day it’s always bigger than just us.

As the boss, I need to grow the business. To grow the business, I need to grow the employees. Since 7 out of 10 sales happen because we showed up, I need to manage activity.

I need the Sales PRO to show up, and I need to know daily if they did or not, and to help that Sales PRO win, I need to know who was talked to and what that marketing manager wishes to get done marketing wise in the next 30 days.

When a young or seasoned Sales PRO is onto growth and change, there’s initially no comfort there. So I realize, to meet my goal as a manager, and as a seasoned PRO, I need to help my team navigate the waters. I have been there and have faced the adversity and have persevered. SO my extra job is to help the Sales PRO work it through.

I know that we as Sales PRO’s can’t develop Perseverance without Obstacles. They come.
We can’t develop Patience without Tribulation. I feel this weekly.
We can’t develop Character with out Adversity.

As manager, I continually try and extend Grace and to take the high road, but the tough calls have to happen. Somebody has to manage and to manage you need data.  But as you gather the data, you want to have your employees feel like they want to work for you, and then they will be the most loyal of all.

We also can’t develop Faith in the Business model, without a Financial Need. We need $’s. This is motivating in itself.

These growth scenarios all require Pain…

We know from watching the example of stars playing at a Collegiate or NFL level, that if you have more pain, you have more gain. These difficulties are really enhancing our capacities. This is hard to remember as we seek comfort over adversity and growth.

If we go through all the trouble and all the adversity , we will enjoy the Victory.
If there was no possibility for defeat, we couldn’t have the Victory. That would be depressing.

In this world, we can’t get our problems solved every time.
In this world, nothing works perfectly.
It doesn’t always go the way we want it to go.
But, if bad things don’t happen to us, we don’t grow.
Who you become through this process, is what’s important.
Difficulties are necessary. And my job as manager is to comfort folks in their trouble and help them come out on the other side. I have had the trouble, so I can show comfort and help others work through those trials since I have persevered through similar business trials.

We know in this world, to achieve Another level, there’s Another Devil.
Another level – Another Devil
Actually, since we grow through adversity, the world is better with the Devil in it, as long as we keep our foot on his neck.
A little bit of evil is necessary to cause us to grow.

So, together, let’s get through the thorns, trials, troubles, show perseverance, conquer, & grow! As a Sales PRO this is hitting the pinnacle.

SPIRITUALLY, the final HOPE… Some day, in the end, I believe it all will change. Because History-Science-The Bible, all convey the big guy’s son showed us 2,000 years ago, that He had Power OVER Sickness, Death, & Nature. At the upcoming future time of return, He cures the Big 3, basically all of our troubles. When He comes back as spelled out in the prophetic book of Revelation, then sickness, death, and natural disasters will go away. His miracles 2,000 years ago show He is the Messiah and what he said was real.

Until then, I will Persevere and Grow, seeking to move to the next level and encouraging others along the way.

Canon XHG1/XHA1 HD Camera Films In Pristine Clear Clean HD

Marquette  –  August 26, 2014  –  I have available a Canon XHG1/XHA1 HD Camera with fluid head tripod. I paid over $7,000 for the camera, accessories, padded camera case, fluid head tripod, tripod case.  The local tv station used this model and we were doing television and post production a couple of years ago and got the same model for compatibility.

My team did not like the actual camera mic that’s built in and said it did not work well, so the camera requires a mic of your choice which mounts on the top. If you want to gather pristine video, and edit it at a high level, then once produced dumb it down to YouTube quality, your clarity  results will be much better with this camera.  Give me a solid offer and we can ship it to you.  I can be reached on my cell phone at 906-361-3325.
