A.G. Wilson Learns to Golf!

IMG_0013

My interest in golf started a few years ago when I was enlisted by my husband, who had no TV or internet access at the time, to keep him apprised of a tournament that had gone into sudden death overtime. Before that, I had never considered golf an exciting or interesting sport to watch, or …

Short of a Stripper

Bored

I once overhead an Architect say, in a very humdrum tone “another Lunch & Learn, you know what that means…pizza or sandwiches and a fight to keep my eyes open”. Following the AIA Continuing Education System guidelines, the learning portion of the Lunch & Learn is very structured.  There is not a lot room for …

Are your Profits Blowing out the Door?

Door needing Weatherstripping

This is a picture that I took while traveling to the Florida panhandle on a business trip.  It was a cold day and the draft coming through the door made blow drying my hair extremely uncomfortable.  I couldn’t believe the amount of energy and money being wasted by the lack of something so simple, weatherstripping. …

The end is really the beginning

gate for end beginning

Want an opening to end user relationships? So, what do you do after the project is over?  If you are asked for a maintenance package do you keep a copy? Do you make one even if it’s not required? An idea I had when I was a distributor was to follow up with the end …

ReCharging the Batteries

FTrail 1

I took time out this weekend to do something I love.  On Saturday I woke up before the sun which also happened to be the first cold day of the season in central Florida, a chilly 37 degrees.  I drove about 50 mins to spend 8 hours in the middle of the Osceola National Forest …
