Happy New Year everyone! The turn of the year is recognized the world over as a point of transition: a time to turn over a new leaf, start with a clean slate, discard the old in favor of the new.
When you think about yourself or your business, what is it that you would change? For change to be successful and long-lasting, it should be made in small increments. So start small — start with a call or an email to another business in our Network for help with whatever it is you need help with to keep your New Year’s resolution.
Rosemarie Lanchester of Everything You Wish For, and RKL Business Associates, Inc. wishes to acknowledge and thank one of our Silver Partners,George Washington Toma TV and Appliances, for their wonderful service. She said, “Several years ago, when I remodeled my kitchen, I purchased all of my kitchen appliances at GW Toma in Weymouth. I knew their reputation for high quality and great service. Recently I had a technician to my home to replace my refrigerator gasket and fix my dishwasher. At that time, I was made aware of another issue with my fridge, that the fan needed to be replaced. I decided to wait for that repair. Some weeks later, when I thought it prudent to not put it off any longer, I ordered the part and the same tech came out to install it. I was amazed that he didn’t charge any labor or service for that call. All I paid for was the part! This wasn’t an easy replacement for the technician — he had to lay on the floor and spend several minutes with the project. I’m so grateful for their professionalism and care! I expressed my gratitude to my technician in hopes he would pass it along to management for being so supportive to our Network, as well as for making a customer very happy. In this day and age there are a lot of bargains out there in the marketplace, but there is no competition for the excellent service I have received from George Washington Toma!”

So now that we have passed through the door of the New Year, make it your resolution to make a connection this month or to share of yourself with someone from our Network. Make it a priority to come to an event to meet new people and old friends. Introduce yourself and your business to others in the Network. When the need eventually arises, you and your business will be the first to come to mind for them.
