Your Store Wizards August 2019 Update

Scott SanfilippoJust a few weeks ago we held our quarterly leadership meeting. This virtual gathering is something we began doing about a year ago and is a day full of reviewing what we accomplished in the previous quarter, setting our goals for the current, and planning for the future.

When planning out “what’s next,” we work in 90-day blocks based on what we need to accomplish for the year. These quarterly meetings keep us focused and aligned with what we need to do in order to complete what we set out to do by year’s end.

Surprise! The Holidays are Closer than you Think!

Santa is just as surprised the holidays are almost here!

Your Store Wizards June 2019 Update

Scott Sanfilippo“Do you have any plans for summer vacation?”

Every time I’m asked that question, I laugh.  Is there really such a thing as a “vacation” for small business owners?

Sure, you may escape to the beach for the weekend, or pack up the family for a few days of rest and relaxation at a resort, but you’re never too far from your business.  Laptops, tablets, and phones have made it all too easy for us to check on how many orders came in, whether emails are getting answered in time, and did so-and-so follow up on that customer’s missing order from wherever we are in the world.
