COVID19 "Remote Working" Day Eighty of Sales

Geesh eighty work days now since I've been optioned to working from home. In eight days we'll hit the four month mark of work days. A third of the year spent working from the home office. Guess I'll need to ask my accountant about this one for 2020 tax time. One of my favorite sales expressions is "another day another dollar", in New Jersey another day means a new executive order from our Governor. Today good ole Murphy signed an executive order that a mask is required outdoors now.

I guess I over did it on the weekend. My wife tells me I always "over due" everything and she's right. Just dealing with some back pain for the last couple of days. Today was my official first day back to work from my vacation. I started my day at 7AM, took a half hour lunch and it was non stop until 4PM. I had three appointments, and I couldn't even track of the emails sent and received. It was good to be back doing what I love to do. I've been working on this net new account for the better...

Happy Birthday America

"I believe the founding fathers surely knew that the power of the vote was the greatest gift to a land once led by a king.

COVID19 "Remote Working" Day Seventy Three of Sales

When I posted a blog on Friday of last week I had no intention of writing one today.
