Resurgence

January 21, 2011 Leave a comment

I was thinking about my Benefits blog and one thing that I struggle with is focus. What I mean is this…… who am I targeting and what am I trying to say. I have made a decision after taking over six months from my blog. I have made a decision that I will focus on those in the trenches. The one that has to make it happen for themselves and their families everyday. So I hope that I will be a source of education, motivation and inspiration. Till next time…….

Must Read Book!

Zig Ziglar is the man when it comes to sales and life. This is a good quick read and could be the best 10 bucks you ever spent…..Selling 101: What Every Successful Sales Professional Needs to Know

I want to encourage you to learn something new every day….. Remember you are either green and growing or ripe and rotting……..

Book of the Day!

I will be offering the book of the day. I believe we all have to continue to learn on a daily basis. So, today’s book is Little Platinum Book of Cha-Ching: 32.5 Strategies to Ring Your Own (Cash) Register in Business and Personal Su ccess (Jeffrey Gitomer’s Little Books).

For those that have never heard of Gitomer just hold on. Gitomer is a refreshing in your face sales trainer that holds nothing back! This book focuses on the Patterson Principles and if you have never heard of Patterson I will give you a clue. How many places do you go to that does not give you a receipt. Patterson is the man that created the “need” for a receipt!

You are either still on the tree growing or on the ground ripe and rotting!

Bright Future!

I am not to excited about the actual Health Care Reform Bill but I am excited about what I believe is a bright future for the Voluntary Benefits industry. Two segments excite me!

1) HR Consulting – With all of these new mandates and laws it will make those of us that approach our business as a consultant more important than ever. Now I realize that not all Voluntary Benefits companies take this approach but for those of us who do… Fasten Your Seat belts! Companies are going to be searching for solutions when it comes to managing their benefits packages. My belief is that if we come in trying to provide solutions not products that there is going to be more doors to open up than we will have time to walk through. I believe that we may even gain accounts that we could not touch in the past because of this. Now the second part… Voluntary Benefits. Our products pay fixed amounts for specific events. What that tells me is that we are not affected. We protect employees income and there future. We are not mandating anything! We are just here when they need us. Your accident, cancer, etc.. does not say what doctor or hospital to go to; just show us that you went and what was done. We provide payments directly to our customers! It is between us and our client not us, Government then client. Keep your head! Small business owners need us now more than ever!
