    No, loaned my car to friend in need for this week and stopped in to grab a work truck this afternoon to ride to from shop instead of walking.

    Common question my phone sellers keep getting asked is "are you owned by TG, will you sell out to them soon?" Seems if we answer both no, we are about guaranteed the sale. Haven't ran this week's reports but I'm fairly sure we grabbed over 100 new ones.

    "are you owned by TG, will you sell out to them soon?"

    I've had customers ask me that as well. I didn't realize how many companies just built up to see out.

    Sorry. I thought I had walked you thru it on the phone once?

    I had to bring it back. We have been consistently 20-30 new program sales a day since we started pro early March. Was shocked we grabbed 43 today. Did this on 3 employees; its amazing what our new phone system is affording us.

    selling hasn't been the problem it has been servicing them...snow melted March 16 and it has rained 14 days since then. Now 80 degrees and only half way through rd 1...weeds everywhere customers are unhappy...mine and others...hopefully I can hang on to mine and keep selling the others and service them in reasonable time. One of the more difficult springs we have been through!
