  Valentine's Day Is Not Just for Lovers

One of the nice things about certain holidays, like Valentine’s Day, is that the longer we are in business, the more likely we will mark these kinds of holidays as part of good relations with our staff and business associates.

Valentine’s Day does not always have to be just about giving the partner in your personal life a present or sentimental card. It can also be a time to recognize your staff, associates, and customers to show a sign of appreciation and to let them know that you’re thinking of them.

There are never too many opportunities to forge good relations and tell people that we care about them.

 Thought of the Day

Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.


What our clients have to say:
I made the decision years ago to list on ALQ and I’m glad I did. In addition to getting quality claims and good new clients, I enjoy the additional customer service Tom and Nancy offer when I see them at out-of-town industry meetings.

— Peter Dubowsky, Esq., Dubowsky Law office Chtd., Las Vegas, NV

ALQ provides fast and convenient access to all kinds of info, listings and answers to all questions legal, whether via referral or direct reply. I simply email our rep, give him a zip code in the SUBJECT line, maybe that the file is retail, $6K or bad check, whatever, and I send it. Usually within less than an hour, the answer is on my email. It’s simple: I have requested a professional recommendation from a professional in their industry. I assume there may be different reasons to recommend one over another. It is a validation, a logic I trust, period. So far, so good! (15 years)

— Jerry L. Ahlrich, CGA, Vice President, NACM South Central, Louisville, KY
