A Message To My Competitor

I work in the home care industry. <– (And THAT is a loaded statement!)

Because of the rising “gray wave” aka Baby Boomers, the industry is already starting to explode. It’s just incredible! But that means I have a lot of competitors and sometimes it can be hard to earn (not sell, but “earn”) a new client. That’s the nature of the beast.

Today, however, I was just blown away by something a potential client was told by a competitor.

A message to my competitor: Don’t be a jerk and lie to get the sale. We are dealing in commodities and products, we are dealing with PEOPLE and someone’s parents! Just be honest!

My Professional Great Awakening

Ok. All 3 of you that read this: I hate to break it to you, but I’m lazy. I wanted to post something seeing as I started this blog like 3 weeks ago and this will only be post #3. BUT, time is something I always seem to be short of because there are other things I could be doing. So, here it is. My very first video blog.

Disclaimer- I hate the sound of myself talking. So, hopefully you don’t despise it as much as I do and can stick in there for just over 4 minutes.

As always, I don’t pretend to be a genius or infallible, just an expert on my own thoughts. So, please give your feedback. A few strokes of the ego are always nice.

It’s Personal

My dabbling into telling personal stories and motivation. This is something I’d really like to do more of- share meaningful and emotionally rooted content.

I am trying to think about how I can bring value. For me, video is a power tool if done right. So my question is: am I doing it right? Well… that’s what the internet is for, right? Send it out there and see what comes back! Constructive (not rude) feedback is VERY welcome!

A little detail: I shot this with an iPhone 4S and a $16 mic. I edited it in Final Cut Pro and the whole thing maybe took me an hour from shooting to upload.
