Mixing up our weekly office meetings - 03/24/09 09:57 PM
With today's economy, we business owners have to help each other out and I am a big advocate of business relationships or business partners. A recent example was our office meeting last week we were invited to a local shop called Whitt's End. It is a boutique of home and garden things and has a unique variety of products that is sure to come to mind when shopping for that hard to buy for person in your life. We were warmly invited with coffee and pastries and heard Ginni (the shop owner) tell the story of how she came to open (1 comments)
Can I order these somewhere? For real! They are great! - 03/24/09 09:31 PM
Ok, I got a great email today and started to delete it but this picture caught my attention! Now ladies, is this brilliant or what? It was probably a man who thought of it no doubt, the brush is a bit small for my liking, but consider the options..... how about one with eye colors, lip shades? You get the idea! Oh I have a great idea for you men out there too, how about one that doubles as a TV remote? What can you come up with? Would love to hear your fun ideas! (26 comments)
Contact managment? How do you keep up? - 03/21/09 11:32 AM
Recently I was introduced to a product called "Constant Contact". They offer a free 60 day trial so I thought it was worth checking into. Well I put it on the back burner until I got an eye catching email from my associate who first told me about the product. So, I revisited this idea and was intrigued with what they offer. I was able to created a bright, eye catching newsletter with little or no experience with the program in a matter of a 1/2 hour. With the trial you can send to 100 people free, but to send to (4 comments)
Cream, sugar or black? How do you like your coffee? - 03/20/09 08:08 PM
What makes a person decide how they like their coffee? Is it a genetic make up? Is it your job? Can you tell someone personlitiy by want they drink? With all the different types of coffees, creamers, sugars, it can get very confusing. Instant or not? The more I think about this the more I realize what a big industry coffee and all of the accessories to go with it. We just purchased a Keurig and I love being able to have something different every time why wait you can have a cup like johnny on spot no waiting. I like mine with more cream than coffee and (1 comments)
Customer Service Represenatives - Where are they trained?? - 03/20/09 02:48 PM
Ok, over the past week we have had many instances where we needed to talk to customer support and I thought this was a great idea for a blog post. First off, Dell has great customer service and walk you through every step of your purchase and answer any questions you might have. They would have to be at the top of our list this week for overall customer support. Now, take a few steps back and look at the customer service for Comcast! Totally another story! After our home internet service being intermittent for about 2 weeks, I called and (2 comments)
Business is Great...We are upgrading!! - 03/20/09 02:25 PM
Thanks to the great clients we have at Marsha Booth & Associates, we are happy to say our two girls up front are BOTH getting new Dell computers! For awhile one of the front office computers have been going to sleep when ever it feels like it, so you don't know if it will wake up or not. And if you walk to the back for a cofee or anything, it just decides at random to shut down. Time to upgrade for sure! So we got a great deal with some "inside" discounts so we got two for the price of (2 comments)

Some tips for boosting your credit score - 03/10/09 10:10 PM
With the new stricter guidelines for getting a home loan everyone needs to be reminded how to boost their credit scores. I recently went over these tips with a client and felt it was worth posting. First thing, all those credit card offers you recieve in the mail, call and opt out! You can call 888-567-8688 and you will notice a decrese in these "junk mail" offers soon afterwards. Always pay your bills before the due date! The easiest way I find to to this is to pay things online but be sure the it is a well established company and (1 comments)
