Written by
It’s that time of year. Snow is flying (at least in Michigan), Christmas music is playing, the Salvation Army Bell is ringing, and the year-end rush is upon us. Don’t let the Christmas crazy and stresses of hitting numbers overwhelm you: There is a lot December 12 has to offer.

Take the time for giving thanks …

Written by
We are surrounded by thankful messages this time of the year. Why? Because it’s important. For many of us, the season often morphs into Black Friday, getting the holiday cards in the mail, and juggling the ever-hectic schedule. But how often do you really take a step back and look at what you have to be thankful for? Do you choose happiness when you look around, do take the time to appreciate what you have, or do you just focus on getting done what you have to do?

Travel: Leaving the Ones You Love

Written by
After doing this routine for ten years, it doesn’t seem to ever get better.

But over the years, we have come up with several tips to help make each time apart a little bit easier.

Hot Wings, Cold Sales

Written by
We can all agree the sales game isn’t as easy as it used to be. In order to be competitive and stand out from the crowd, we can no longer wing it. We have to work smarter and harder. That’s what I heard from leading advertising sales experts at the Niche Media Conference in Nashville earlier this month.

What Am I Doing For Others?

Written by
You can’t walk through the streets of Boston and Plymouth without being caught up in the history that defines those cities. Everything started there. Plymouth Rock symbolizes a group of people who were willing to leave everything behind in pursuit of religious freedom for their families and those that would follow. Plimoth Plantation brings to life the reality of not only the sacrifices the first Pilgrims made, but also the others first mentality of that colony and of the Wampanoag people. If that tribe or those families put themselves above their neighbors, the Plymouth Colony would have surely failed.

Learning How to Become More Social

Written by
Social media has resulted in some of the most used sites on the Internet by young and older people. In an ever-changing travel industry, the best way to stay on top of your game and attract the most attention to your program, service, or destination is to become an active member on social sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram for starters. 
For those of you who just attended STYA and any other state travel trade show, this is for you.  Most of us register for a trade show to generate new business opportunities that translate into overall sales revenue. During the show, you work the floor, visit with current clientele, and meet new prospects. So, what happens when you get home?

What’s ‘different’?

Written by
Forgive me in advance the many questions here. But I’ve been wondering: What is “different”? What does is mean when someone says, “Let’s do something different,” or “Let’s go somewhere different,” or “That would be different.”? What makes something different?
