Customer Education

One of the biggest issues I run into almost on a daily basis, is the lack of customer education in our biz. Just before Christmas, I was helping a twitter friend with some insight as he was planning to purchase a new TV. He was shopping at the dreadful big box store. I won’t mention which store, but you know who you are big blue!

So my twitter friend is shopping at the big box looking at LCD vs Plasma. Read more »

Beyonce finally hits it

Anyone who really knows me knows that I love music. And I don’t mean just a little bit of music love, but a full blown addiction to music. IE – I have something on all the time, I have something playing in my office, in my house, definitely in my truck… And don’t forget… There is always something playing in my head. I absolutely love music. And not just one particular type of music but I love a wide variety of music.

US Thanksgiving

You might ask why a Canadian kid like me is all excited about this day… Well, there are really three reasons for that. 1. My wife is from New York! 2. I’m a Dallas Cowboys fan, we always play on today! 3. I really like food!

So this holiday is perfect for me. I’ve also enjoyed being able to spend most of my thanksgivings the last few years in Westchester county with me wife’s family. We’re nice and close to the city which I always like. Read more »

Oh Christmas Time

I love this time of year. The leaves are down. The weather’s getting colder. Ok, truth be told, I’m not that excited about the cold weather. Although the by product of cold weather is ski season is coming. And that makes me happy. Oh ok, where was I?

Oh yeah. I love this time of year. It’s the start of the Christmas season. I know, all you Americans have yet to really get in the Christmas season. You still have yet to complete both Thanksgiving and Black Friday. And don’t get get me wrong, I’m really looking forward to Thanksgiving and the general chaos that is Black Friday. But up here in Canadialand, Christmas is in full force. The paper is full of ads, Walmart is talking about their price matching for Christmas on tv. Heck, I walked out of Home Depot this week as a tractor trailer was uploading Christmas trees! So yeah, it’s in full force. Read more »
