Most businesses and people are in search of the same things – success, happiness, health and peace. I am fortunate to be a 3rd generation business owner. My grandfather owned Knapp Realty in Macomb County, Michigan, back in the 50’s and 60’s and my dear Mom, Emy Carry, was a very successful real estate agent in Oakland County, Michigan, for 30 years before she passed away too young in 2004. My father was a 42 year executive at GM rising through the ranks to lead design centers for small cars, Saturn and large vehicles, all without a college degree.
My parents taught me one could accomplish whatever they set out to do as long as they have their customers best interest in mind. Once I found my calling in advertising back in 1993 and focused on this principle my clients were achieving fantastic results as I was with my career. I was fortunate to be recruited all over the country to rebuild advertising sales teams, develop new online strategies and dramatically turn around top line and bottom line revenues. The focus was always on providing results for the customer and every time success came.
The mindset and the model fit every business, the tough part these days is convincing business owners all the new ways they need to reach their customers to be successful and connect with their clients in this online world. The best part, it has never been easier. The time for action is now. Insist on swift and sustainable success for your businesses. Only hire those who are focused on your success. Avoid long-term agreements until you see a sense of urgency from your online marketing partner and they provide results and ROI.
This next chapter will be the best; I look forward to consulting with businesses of all sizes locally and internationally. Properly connecting local businesses with today’s online consumer is important. We need to help each other find success, health, happiness, and peace.
