Old Business CardsOld Business Cards
On October 7th, 1946 I received my Diplomat signed by William M. Scholl,MD, President of The Scholl Mfg. Inc.  It stated that I had honorably completed the Course of Instructions in Fitting and Adjusting Dr. Scholl's Foot Comfort Appliances. I was just 17 years old and I was working after school in Thompson's Shoe Store in Detroit, Michigan.  I was ready to relieve the whole human race of foot pain from fallen arches.  We had an X-ray machine and it also helped me fit any customer's foot for comfort.  Below is my old business card and I could rattle off the names of every bone in the human foot. I fitted a lot of folks with arch supports and many would come back and tell me of the relief they provided.  When I was eighteen I moved on to the Michigan National Bank and drove their mail car taking mail from one branch to another. The same year I found employment with the Grand Trunk Western Railroad and worked for them for 35 years. Oh I took a leave to serve in the army for a couple of years but from 1948 to 1983 I was on the railroad rolls.. Oh, the business cards  fellow accumulates during a lifetime.

Do you have such memories?  I'd love to hear your comments.  Please leave them on my Blog by Clicking Here.

Say Something Good
The Moon.  WoW! Recently, wife,Jean and I saw the biggest, brightest moon we've seen in a long, long time and I understand that we could have encountered a super blue blood moon if we had just stayed out all night. It was freezing outside and we need all the sleep we can get.  Just the same it was exciting and romantic to see this giant moon a shinin' down on us.  May God bless America and bring us world peace.

Points to Ponder 
Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulseHenry Van Dyke

Turning Your Customers into Long-Term Friends: The Secret Sauce that Guarantees Repeat and Referral Sales [Kindle Edition]

Turning Your Customers into Long-Term FriendsThere’s only one way to become an outstanding success as a salesperson. It’s called repeat and referral sales. It doesn’t matter if you’re selling cars, real estate, insurance, pharmaceuticals, financial services or farm equipment. If you don’t focus your efforts on generating repeat and referral sales, you’re going nowhere as a salesperson. Furthermore, there’s only one way in which you can get your customers to provide you with continuing repeat and referral sales and that’s by turning them into long-term friends.

Let me give you an example: Joe Girard was a car salesperson for Merolis Chevrolet in Detroit. For 12 straight years Joe was listed in The Guinness Book of World Records for being the world’s best new car salesperson. During his final year of selling cars, Joe sold 1,425 new Chevrolet cars and trucks! That’s 1,425 new Chevrolet cars and trucks sold by a single salesperson during one calendar year!

John H. Burdakin and the Grand Trunk Western Railroad

John H. Burdakin and the Grand Trunk Western RailroadJohn H. Burdakin and the Grand Trunk Western Railroad provides a look at the principles and personal values that guided John H. Burdakin through a long, successful career as a top manager at three railroads—the Pennsylvania, the Penn Central, and finally the Grand Trunk Western, where he was president of the regional carrier from 1974 to 1986. The book, written from interviews with Burdakin before his death in 2014, gives real-life examples of how Burdakin’s management principles and personal qualities helped him solve labor- management problems, update railroad technology, protect worker safety, and improve employee morale while managing a four thousand–person workforce. It introduces colorful characters who were involved in American railroads, as well as the serious, life-threatening issues that confronted railroads in the last half of the twentieth century in America. This book will provide insights for managers of any business as well as for those seeking to balance a successful career and a rewarding home life.

Tempe - Then and Now

Soon after, he built a store, a flour mill, and a cable ferry across the river, and he started a town. Since then, Tempe has changed from a small farming community to a lively urban center. Moreover, Tempe's residential growth has made it the seventh-largest town in Arizona.

Writing Without Bullshit: Boost Your Career by Saying What You Mean

Writing Without BullshitJoining the ranks of classics like The Elements of Style and On Writing Well, Writing Without Bullshit helps professionals get to the point to get ahead.

It’s time for Writing Without Bullshit.

Writing Without Bullshit is the first comprehensive guide to writing for today’s world: a noisy environment where everyone reads what you write on a screen. The average news story now gets only 36 seconds of attention. Unless you change how you write, your emails, reports, and Web copy don’t stand a chance.

In this practical and witty book, you’ll learn to front-load your writing with pithy titles, subject lines, and opening sentences. You’ll acquire the courage and skill to purge weak and meaningless jargon, wimpy passive voice, and cowardly weasel words. And you’ll get used to writing directly to the reader to make every word count.

At the center of it all is the Iron Imperative: treat the reader’s time as more valuable than your own. Embrace that, and your customers, your boss, and your colleagues will recognize the power and boldness of your thinking.

Transcend the fear that makes your writing weak. Plan and execute writing projects with confidence. Manage edits and reviews flawlessly. And master every modern format from emails and social media to reports and press releases.

Stop writing to fit in. Start writing to stand out. Boost your career by writing without bullshit.
