Choosing the wrong weapon can impact your personal and business visibility in your market.
If you always "compete" with the same weapons as your competition (business) or job applicants (personal) then it's hard to stand out from the crowd.
As you approach 2013 look for areas you can separate from the pack and stand out so you can stand up!

The best part of the holidays is how it can bring a community together. In towns across the country collision repairers have traditionally played large roles in all the activities of the season.
What we typically don’t do well is allowing the community to celebrate and engage with us at our business location. Sure we build great parade floats and collect toys, but as a repairer you have so many other options to assist your community and celebrate your…Continue

So I’m sitting at home on a rainy day watching bad TV. As I’m flipping through the channels to avoid commercials (I hate commercials), I run across a show about people that lead different lives online.
