I often joke around about my deals being stronger than a Jerry Scoby Handshake. If you ever are in Big Rapids, take a minute to track down Jerry Scoby and experience his handshake for yourself. Usually he can be found on the Campus of Ferris State University, where he is Vice President for Administration and Finance. He doesn't over power you with his teeth showing, it is simply a firm handshake that makes you remember him. Somehow in that two second handshake trust is formed and you just know inside he means what he says. Some people in life have those signature moves, like the way Jeanne Fribley, manager of the Big Rapids branch of Huntington Bank, signs her name. Watching her, knowing the each letter is of importance and when she is done you feel safe knowing Jeanne has put her approval on it.
In today's world of technology and speed we have lost something along the lines of personal contact. We now email and text rather than meet and great so we lose out on those little things that make a person who they are. While I would love to be remembered for something along those lines I have no super human abilities so I go with honesty and integrity. I get a ton of referrals that use those words when telling me why they came to me and it does give me a great deal of pride when I hear it so until I am as well known as a Jerry Scoby Handshake, I will just treat others as I would like to be treated and remember every client deserves the very best I have to give. Have a great day and thanks for reading.
