Good Service vs. Platinum Service

” What’s the difference between ‘Good Service’ and ‘Platinum Service’? ‘Good’ is the enemy of ‘Great’.
So, ‘GOOD’ – that dog won’t hunt, anymore; it is about being ‘PLATINUM’!
See, … when I understand to see my Customers as my Guests, I don’t rush to serve them.
I stop looking at them through the lens of ‘Transaction’
and I see them through the lens of ‘Transformation’.
So, net-net takeaway: stop ‘Selling’ and start ‘Connecting’,
because when you ‘Sell’ that’s a ‘Transaction’.
When you ‘Connect’ that’s a ‘Relationship’! ”

When YOU Own a Company

“Yes, I own my own company, and I prefer to say ‘mompreneur’.
Being a mommy you have to run your house, you’ve got to run your kids’ lives.
I think the key, and my number one tip, is making sure you have a great support team set up,
and communication within your household is key at all times.
It really comes into play when you have appointments, you know,
when you have to be here, so you have to be sure to communicate.”
