How to identify who you are

A friend shared this  and I believe it is a great story to identify who we are:

“We were the only family with children in the restaurant. I sat Erik in a high chair and noticed everyone was quietly sitting and talking. Suddenly, Erik squealed with glee and said, ‘Hi.’ He pounded his fat baby hands on the high chair tray. His eyes were crinkled in laughter and his mouth was bared in a toothless grin, as he wriggled and giggled with merriment.
I looked around and saw the source of his merriment. It was a man whose pants were baggy with a zipper at half-mast and his toes poked out of would-be shoes. His shirt was dirty and his hair was uncombed and unwashed.. His whiskers were too short to be called a beard and his nose was so varicose it looked like a road map.

We were too far from him to smell, but I was sure he smelled.. His hands waved and flapped on loose wrists.. ‘Hi there, baby; hi there, big boy. I see ya, buster,’ the man said to Erik.
My husband and I exchanged looks,
‘What do we do?’
Erik continued to laugh and answer, ‘Hi.’
Everyone in the restaurant noticed and looked at us and then at the man. The old geezer was creating a nuisance with my beautiful baby. Our meal came and the man began shouting from across the room, ‘Do ya patty cake? Do you know peek-a-boo? Hey, look, he knows peek- a-boo.’
Nobody thought the old man was cute. He was obviously drunk.
My husband and I were embarrassed. We ate in silence; all except for Erik, who was running through his repertoire for the admiring skid-row bum, who in turn, reciprocated with his cute comments.
We finally got through the meal and headed for the door. My husband went to pay the check and told me to meet him in the parking lot. The old man sat poised between me and the door. ‘Lord, just let me out of here before he speaks to me or Erik,’ I prayed. As I drew closer to the man, I turned my back trying to sidestep him and avoid any air he might be breathing. As I did, Erik leaned over my arm, reaching with both arms in a baby’s ‘pick-me-up’ position. Before I could stop him, Erik had propelled himself from my arms to the man.
Suddenly a very old smelly man and a very young baby consummated their love and kinship. Erik in an act of total trust, love, and submission laid his tiny head upon the man’s ragged shoulder. The man’s eyes closed, and I saw tears hover beneath his lashes. His aged hands full of grime, pain, and hard labor, cradled my baby’s bottom and stroked his back. No two beings have ever loved so deeply for so short a time.
I stood awestruck. The old man rocked and cradled Erik in his arms and his eyes opened and set squarely on mine. He said in a firm commanding voice, ‘You take care of this baby.’
Somehow I managed, ‘I will,’ from a throat that contained a stone.
He pried Erik from his chest, lovingly and longingly, as though he were in pain. I received my baby, and the man said, ‘God bless you, ma’am, you’ve given me my Christmas gift.’

I said nothing more than a muttered thanks. With Erik in my arms, I ran for the car. My husband was wondering why I was crying and holding Erik so tightly, and why I was saying, ‘My God, my God, forgive me.’

I had just witnessed Christ’s love shown through the innocence of a tiny child who saw no sin, who made no judgment; a child who saw a soul, and a mother who saw a suit of clothes. I was a Christian who was blind, holding a child who was not.. I felt it was God asking, ‘Are you willing to share your son for a moment?’ when He shared His for all eternity. How did God feel when he put his baby in our arms 2000 years ago.

The ragged old man, unwittingly, had reminded me, ‘To enter the Kingdom of God , we must become as little children.’
If this has blessed you, please bless others by sending it on. Sometimes, it takes a child to remind us of what is really important. We must always remember who we are, where we came from and, most importantly, how we feel about others.

The clothes on your back or the car that you drive or the house that you live in does not define you at all; it is how you treat your fellow man that identifies who you are.”

Life is a journey, and we surround ourselves by so many masks,  it is only when we allow the masks to drop we can really know who we are.

Be blessed and please share with others.

Growing your business

We are in the second month of the year and I know some small business owners maybe still undecided about which way to go with their business, so the following article will provide you with some good tips.

http://www.portalcfo.com/key-leadership-characteristics-the-things-you-need-to-do-to-help-your-business-grow/

I have always felt that if the company has strong leadership it helps. This dictates the culture of the organization.
customer service
Many times you go to do business with a company and you can tell what they stand for by the quality of service they provide and the environment.

In addition to having a passion for what you do you must be visionary – explore mobile marketing, most people do their searches on their smart phones and they take quick action so do not get left out.
mobile app sample

Check to see how many clients you got from your yellow pages ad or your newspaper ad, I am sure it does not justify the cost. If you want to increase your customer base and keep your existing customers mobile marketing is the way to go. Just send me an email for more information.

The other key area you need to look at is your processes – are these documented so that if one of your employees leave he/she does not walk out with your company’s knowledge and leave you hanging because no one else knows what to do. You need to have all your processes properly documented. Once you do this and any employee decide to leave you have procedures to show the new person how to do the work.
stress
So many small and medium size companies run into problems because they train and train but there is nothing documented to describe what to do. If you need help with this let me know.


#1 Way to get more from your business

The #1 way to get more from your business is to get your information in the hands of your customers via mobile application with your QR code. There is an average of 1.2 billion users of mobile phones. Imagine getting your business information in the hands of a percentage of these mobile users?

Key Benefits of having a mobile app (taken from local app) :

Build customer loyalty.
Make your customers feel special by offering discounts, coupons, and promotions just for using your app.

Send push notifications.
Deliver instant messages to your customers’ mobile phones whenever you wish. While only 4% to 10% of emails get opened, push notifications get read 97% of the time. These are samples of mobile apps.

Create viral buzz.
Let customers quickly tell all of their friends about you using the built-in sharing capabilities of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, your blog, SMS, and Email.

Grow your list.
Gather names and email addresses directly inside your app and easily export them into your favorite email marketing campaign service.

Promote special events.
Provide up-to-date information about all of your business events, sales, and promotions with an in-app events calendar that anyone can access.

Gain more credibility.
These are still the early years of the mobile app. Having one adds serious credibility to your business—especially among those who don’t know how easy we make it.

Keep customers informed.
Fill your app with information about your business, service offerings, product samples, menus, and more. There’s a tab for just about everything you want them to know.

Connect with ease.
Make it simple for customers to reach you using one touch calling, email, a website link, and GPS directions to to your business—all from inside your app.
