Busy Busy Bee

In high school I went by the name Bee, my initials. So today it only makes sense that I say I am a busy, busy bee!

From a move, to trying to get settled in while waiting for my mom to get all of her things out and now other basement issues, I swear the idea of focusing to work or do anything except try to organize a cluttered place isn’t in my mind. I can’t handle much more at this time and so I find myself sleeping early and withdrawing myself from a normally social and workaholic mindset.

School is now started for my oldest which means three days a week I bring her to and from school. Also my oldest will have soccer and so two nights a week I get an hour on the field running with my sons while attempting to watch how my daughter has grown in soccer over the past four years, this is her fifth year as a soccer player for our local rec center.

Next week my son, AJ, starts school and so it will be five days a week of dropping him off and picking him up plus one night a week soccer. Three nights a week and five mornings and afternoons a week, this is starting to feel a bit overwhelming to me with all the other to do things on my list that have yet to be completed.

Right now, all I am trying to do is withdraw myself from extra social chatter so that I can start putting my mind back into some form of routine for work, family and children. I know I can do this, just wish someone give me the strength and some clever ideas on how!

Hurricane Ireene Turned Tropical Storm Irene for New England

Apparently New England got hit pretty hard when Hurricane Irene hit land and started up the East coast this past weekend! I, myself, didn’t see much more than long rain showers but there were many areas that were hit badly close to home!

There are many people without homes and others stranded with no access to the outside world and no electric. I was watching a show on Headline News and they started questioning if we, the people, are to blame for such crazy weather and the global warming. I really can’t get into my feelings on that topic, but I do feel everyone should recycle because really it saves money if for no other reason.

I had a friend on Facebook state that a damn went in a town and if another one went her home would go with it! I looked all over Facebook and of course I need permission to share their pictures which would take sometimes forever so I am not sharing pics on here, but let’s just say some of NH and VT are messed up for sure. The pictures I saw in various areas of VT were crazy!

Thank goodness this storm has passed, but now let’s work to help each other in moving forward and getting back on our feet from the storm damage! Hugs to all who have been hit or have family hit! Let’s find a way to band together and help our family and neighbors in need.

Company Must Have Great Customer Service

I am a sucker for great customer service. I am so bad that if a company, online or brick n mortar, doesn’t have good customer service I won’t go there again regardless of whether they are the cheapest to buy from or not. I would prefer to spend a little more for great customer service!

The best way to create a good customer service base for your company would start with customer management software, having the right software to work with makes all of the difference in the world. Being able to manage customer experiences in an efficient way is what will put your company at an advantage in one area that most customers care most about; customer service. Making sure you know who your customers are allows for you to offer more of what they want and need.

When a business is looking for customers the best way to start is to use customer acquisition strategy. This is a business model that allows the business to be more strategic about finding the best customers possible for whatever it is they may be selling.

There you have it, if you want to make sure you have the best customer service you will need to ensure you are strategically finding customers that want your product or service and keeping details on who your customers are to ensure that you are always meeting or exceeding their desires.

Tropical Storm Weather Coming In From Hurricane Irene

Guess New England is getting hit by this Hurricane Irene, but by the time it reaches us it seems to be tropical storm type weather. I don’t know if I will have electricity or anything but I have glow sticks, one flash light and some candles ready. This blog post is being written late Saturday night, so far it appears we will have gusts of wind up to 40MPH but the forecast keeps changing as the hurricane moves up this way.

The yard has been all picked up and the dogs will come in. Hopefully it would be too hot during this storm, because if there is no power there is no air conditioners and man that would suck with the muggy weather we have been having these past couple of days.

I hope everyone stays safe and I hope the storm passes fast and safely through everyone’s states!
