Customer Service & Dick Handy
I've been meaning to share this story with you for...years. Dick Handy was a friend of ours who was the store director for Hy-Vee in Fort Dodge, Iowa. He was also the store director for the Hy-Vee of Urbandale, Iowa from 1979 - 1981. I saw his photo on a display celebrating the Urbandale grocery store 30th anniversary this spring. I've told this story hundreds of times and will share it today. How a guy travels 60 miles to pick up and deliver a case of kosher dairy deserts on the day before...Christmas. Good stuff, and a timeless lesson on customer service.
Customer Service - Medical Care
I've got a new doctor and made my first visit yesterday. Carlos Alarcon, M.D. is from Lima (No...not Ohio but Peru). What a neat guy. We visited about all sorts of things from our mutual friends from Lima (Juan Cadenillas are you reading?) to his family...mostly attorneys. Then we talked health issues and he made an impression and some sound suggestions. The visit was not hurried, but focused. I just thought you should know there seems to be good customer service even from physicians.
Job Opportunity! Whoot!!
I don't often do this...but our agency has a client seeking a person to work in advertising sales/marketing here in Iowa. I've been involved with this company for years and they are solid...and so is their product. If you know ag and have an understanding for agricultural equipment this could be for you. Here are the bullet points:
Growth Oriented Multi-Media Company
Digital & Print Products (23 Trade Publications)
Self-Starter, Articulate, goal oriented, career minded
Previous Sales Experience, Some Overnight Travel
Car, Salary, Commissions and Benefits - WHOOT!
Social Media Resources - Got the Time?
Our friend Zachary Sniderman wrote a very cool blog: "38 New Digital Media Resources" from Mashable. If you've got the time...it is an excellent read and well worth investigating. If you want to pump up your digital media that is.
Just for Fun - From @CouchSurfingOri
Caught this piece early today. Ori is one of the most interesting guys I know, met him at the 140 Character Conference - Des Moines and if you don't follow him...you've got to start. Here is a great, funny video done by Ashley Klinger and what she did while stuck overnight in an airport. Good stuff...
