Don't Replace It - Frame It And Save !

Transform your existing mirror while it’s still on the wall Simply Installed – Stunning Results!

 

Productivity is determined not by work but by EFFECTIVE actions disguised as work
By Doug Firebaugh
In the "sales" part of your business, you have the unique opportunity to see real results for your hard work. We can often fool ourselves into thinking that when we are busy we are doing the best thing. However, make sure that what you are doing is bona fide revenue-generating activity. If you've taken any of my programs, review your notes from our goal-setting and time management sessions. This principle is very applicable to your sales activities; think of it as your road map for the successful implementation of your business idea.

Have an effective day! From Sales Essentials, Allen Rigby CSP

Paris Flea Market style made for lovers of French decor
Toronto Star
In her new book, Paris Flea Market Style, Claudia Strasser has a beautiful way of getting to the core of why the old and the discarded hold such an important place in our hearts: "We relish finding things of beauty, whether in artwork, lace, or an industrial remnant. And we want to have those things close to us in our homes. On tattered tables are memories and precious reminders of what we were and what we are, what we value and what we have lost."
