boston: Are you saying Thank You enough? If not Why not? - 01/13/13 12:14 PM
 
 
Over the years I have read nearly 100 books on sales, self improvement, business and throw in a few Boston Mob books...I sponge to learn and recently my message of appreciation marketing has never been clearer....
 
Why?

 
I see folks who talk a big game fail.  I see folks implement my coaching succeed.  I see large organinzations pu pu the power of an unexpected card as meaningless.  Yet, their agent count has dropped nearly 1550 agents in five years.  Conversely, I assisted one company from 6 offices and 70 agents to the powerhouse of 17 offices … (4 comments)

boston: The Gratitude Challenge - 06/19/12 03:56 AM
 
 

 
The Gratitude Challenge is an excellent way to remind oneself of the importance of thanking and appreciating others.
 
When I speak around the country I am amazed how few agents have an Apprecaition Marketing campaign in place.
 
They are begging their clients to go elsewhere; they are begging their clients to search Google next time they need something; they are begging their clients for social indifference.
 
The Gratittuce Challenge introduces you to create a habit of Appreciation.

boston: Words to Live By - Jay McHugh - 12/13/11 07:31 AM
 

 
WORDS TO LIVE BY...   If you complain you will remain, if you praise you will raise. Joel Osteen   Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. Winston Churchill   Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures. H. Jackson Brown, Jr.   Whenever you fall, pick something up. Oswald Avery   A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties. Harry Truman   Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold. Maurice Setter   The power of the mind is … (3 comments)

boston: Encouragement Corner with Jay McHugh......After Oshyn's Birthday party - 12/12/11 05:08 PM
 

 
ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER... Rule One - You will receive a body. Whether you love it or hate it, it's yours for life, so accept it. What counts is what's inside. Rule Two - You will be presented with lessons. Life is a constant learning experience, which every day provides opportunities for you to learn more. These lessons specific to you, and learning them 'is the key to discovering and fulfilling the meaning and relevance of your own life'. Rule Three - There are no mistakes, only lessons. Your development towards wisdom is a process of experimentation, trial and error, so it's inevitable … (1 comments)

boston: Get out of the Drama and Surround yourself with Winners.... - 11/29/11 07:34 AM
 

Someone once said, "There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. Surround yourself only with people who make you laugh and love you. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy!! Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Being alive is a gift, being happy is by choice!! … (3 comments)

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER... As we travel down life's busy roadComplaining of our heavy load,We often think life's been unfairAnd gave us much more than our shareOf little daily irritationsAnd disappointing tribulations. We're discontented with our lotAnd all the "bad breaks" that we got;We count our losses ... not our gain,And remember only tears and pain.The good things we forget completelyWhen life looked down and blessed us sweetly. Our troubles fill our every thought,We dwell upon the goals we sought;And wrapped up in our own despair,We have no time to see or shareAnother's load that far outweighsOur little problems and dismays. … (0 comments)

boston: Boston Invite from Jay McHugh to hear Gary V talk about what is needed to succeed in 2012 - 09/23/11 07:52 AM
Hey Active Rain members,
I'm writing to ask a favor of you!  This past spring I shared at our office meeting how I was absolutely blown away from a keynote speaker I saw at the RE/MAX Convention, Gary Vaynerchuk.  In seven years this 38 year old t-shirt and jean wearing kid, turned his dad's liquor store into a $50+ million online wine business using social networking and gratitude marketing.  He spent less than $55/month on marketing/advertising and he learned that he could build an empire using appreciation marketing, social networking, and great customer service.  HE IS ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING … (0 comments)
