bag, a "bug-out-bag."

time to gather essential supplies such as a first-aid kit or other important
items including insurance documents.

Lunch is on me! Your voice & data service is a huge
recurring expense. I have helped clients save
hundreds to thousands of dollars per month on these
bills. I have a couple of clients I've helped save
over $50,000 in one year - that's a lot of money. I
have the ability to easily check pricing with
literally hundreds of providers, and can quickly
compare what's available via cable, DSL, T1, fiber,
etc. Several times in this newsletter I've offered

So here's the deal - send me your voice & data bill,
and I'll send you a $20 gift card for a local
restaurant. I'll review your service and let you

considering. Spread the word to your friends - if I
can save them some money maybe I'll get a new client
out of the deal as well.

Are Bad Email Habits Wasting Your Time?
used with permission from HP Technology at Work
Are bad email habits distracting you, wasting your time,
and causing miscommunications with clients, employees and others?
Making a few simple changes to the way you handle email will
help you improve focus, save time, and communicate more effectively.
Here are five bad email habits that could be holding you
back -- and positive alternatives to get you moving forward.
Bad habit #1: Sending emails late at
night, early in the morning, and on weekends. This sends clients
the message that you're on call 24/7, so they treat you that
way -- which ultimately stresses you out. It also sends employees
the message that you expect them to be on call 24/7 -- which stresses them out.
