unique marketing: Glowing letter of recommendation - 09/21/11 05:08 AM
When someone writes you a glowing letter of reccomendation it just makes your day. I was blown away by the glowing accolades and praise in this letter. I could not have paid Jerry to do better PR for me. What made it all the more special is that it came from someone in my niche: a senior couple who needed a wheel chair accessible home.

unique marketing: Anniversary of the ADA & my own "Proclamation" - 07/26/10 07:31 AM
Today is the 20 yr anniversary of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). People all over the country today are celebrating one of the pivotal moments of the Civil/Disability Rights Movement. 20 years ago the Americans With Disabilities Act became law, opening many doors for the nation's largest minority group. I posted this on my Facebook account and an interpreter friend of mine who's sister uses a wheel chair, commented that not many people even know what the law is and that it impacts the LARGEST minority in our country. This maybe true but I want to stay focused on the … (2 comments)
