Light Their Way Back To School

Amazon Back to School 2015 banner

It’s back-to-school time… already! Well, as your student grows, so should their schoolwork and study space. The one place they spend a lot of their time doing homework and preparing for tests is their desk, right? Maybe they prefer the comforts of their bed to a desk.

In either case, your student needs great lighting to protect their eyes and prevent those awful headaches!. Lamps with LED lighting are more energy-efficient. If you heard that they are more harmful to your eyes… THAT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE!

What a Week! What a Week!!

You know I always have some outrageous, yet true, stories to share with you. Well this week has been an over-the-top roller coaster of a week TO SAY THE LEAST! The issues actually started a week ago, Thursday, so it’s been a hell-acious eleven days. As most of you probably know by now, my bread-and-butter business is a small trucking company that my husband, Mike, and I own and operate. We run as a “team”, meraning we usually cover about 4-5000 miles per week. For the past 5 months we’d been on a sweet run under contract that paid quite nicely… same money, less miles. Pump the breaks! That all came to a halt and jolt very abruptly. Boy oh boy… abruptly is putting it mildly.

So on that particular Thursday, our dispatcher says, “Hey, we haven’t been given the loads for next week yet. We’re meeting with their head ups in the morning so be patient with me while I find out what’s going on.” Well, Friday morning turned into Tuesday morning. Mike and I have been trucking long enough to know that contracts change with the wind, so trailer hunting we go. We finally find one Wednesday that’s finally ready to roll on Thursday. We pickup a load Thursday heading to Laredo, Tx and we’re off! Read entire post

Why Not Offer Top Notch Customer Service?

Join us on Pinterest. We take care of business and have a ton of fun doing it!

I read an article in Forbes today titled, “4 Lessons From the Red Carpet On Customer Service“. It was so plainly explained just how easy the art of customer service is to master. Receiving great service has greatly diminished in recent years. It seems like the more competition that has surfaced in the online and brick-and-mortar retail arena, as well as the services space, the more nonchalant customer service has become. I’ve yet to understand this. I have said time and time again that customers are what you need and should want. Customers are who pay your bills (even though they don’t literally “write the check”), so why do so many… too many people feel that offering a customer their butt to kiss, because they’re having a bad day, is alright?! Just go clock out and try it again the next day.

The article uses Beyonce as an example, but shouldn’t each and every one of your customers be a Beyonce? Do they have to be a mega-celebrity or be filthy rich for you to do your job to the best of your ability? NO! I’ve said it to Customer Service Reps, on the phone and face-to-face, if you don’t like dealing with customers, go buy an island and treat yourself like crap! It’s ridiculous to think that a customer is going to pay a dime for someone to suck their teeth, roll their neck (and, no, this is not a racial thing) or make a negative comment in another language and think that the customer should just deal with it… SERIOUSLY?! I beg to differ!
