lIVE CHAT: Black Friday Sales, Turkey Thanks Giving Now Christmas
As with Native traditions in America, celebrations - complete with merrymaking and feasting - in England and throughout Europe after a successful crop are as ancient as the harvest-time itself. In 1621, when their labors were rewarded with a bountiful harvest after a year of sickness and scarcity, the Pilgrims gave thanks to God and celebrated His bounty in the Harvest Home tradition with feasting and sport (recreation). To these people of strong Christian faith, this was not merely a revel; it was also a joyous outpouring of gratitude.
If there is one day each year when food and family take center stage, it is Thanksgiving. It is a holiday about “going home” with all the emotional content those two words imply. The Sunday following Thanksgiving is always the busiest travel day of the year in the United States. Each day of the long Thanksgiving weekend, more than 10 million people take to the skies. Another 40 million Americans drive 100 miles or more to have Thanksgiving dinner. And the nation’s railways teem with travelers going home for the holiday.
Despite modern-age turmoil—and perhaps, even more so, because of it—gathering together in grateful appreciation for a Thanksgiving celebration with friends and family is a deeply meaningful and comforting annual ritual to most Americans. The need to connect with loved ones and to express our gratitude is at the heart of all this feasting, prayerful thanks, recreation, and nostalgia for a simpler time. And somewhere in the bustling activity of every November's Thanksgiving is the abiding National memory of a moment in Plymouth, nearly 400 years ago, when two distinct cultures, on the brink of profound and irrevocable change, shared an autumn feast.
Sales Rep Kryptonite? CLOSING!
It’s true there are salespeople out there who actually “Sell” products/services for a living…..that HATE to CLOSE customers. Literally I’ve been on ride-alongs with sales reps making calls on customers where I see them physically shake with nervousness when it came time to ask the customer to buy. I’ve never met a salesperson who doesn’t like to talk including myself so to witness this irony where you have someone present their product with such confidence actually wilt when it comes time to ask a customer for the sell is quite baffling.
During this show we'll have the #1 Best-Seller Author of ":60 seconds to YES" Don Spini help us to decipher the "WHY", and "HOW" to break this apprehension sales reps have with "Closing". During this time of year as many companies are close to closing their year-end sales forecasting book, sales reps are scrambling to make sure they execute on their year-end sales quota......"Closing" is CRITICAL.
I hope you join me for what I think will be a highly charged and inspirational show!

Recently I was interviewed by Bloomberg Business about a question a sales manager posed: “My sales team struggles to meet their goals. What are some tips on how to motivate them?” My first response was to get to the “cause” of the struggle. Too many companies start addressing the “effect” – which is just a band aid. It can be uncomfortable for a manager to get to the cause. Join us for a lively conversation with Vickie Bouffard, a Rock Star Team Manager built a team from the ground up and funded over a billion dollars of loans annually as a JPM Chase Operations Manager.
She built her team from scratch; hired, trained, coached and developed millennials to baby boomers including those new to mortgage to 30 years of experience. She brings sales, training and development and operations experience.
An award winning sales person for 15 years. Consistently emerged as the top sales rep – made the most money while working the fewest hours! Vickie's been training sales and operations people for 20 years. She took an underperforming dysfunctional team in last place to first place in 6 weeks. Nationally recognized team for Best Customer Satisfaction The Sales Department's Favorite Processing Team. As a former Dale Carnegie instructor, she received some of the best adult and experiential learning instructor training in the world. Vickie uses multiple learning modalities to make learning stick and when it sticks you own it; you perform like a Rock Star!

As this year comes to an end, we wanted to make this show all about Christmas: Your fondest memories, the gifts, the giving, the religious aspect of Christmas, are just some of the topics we will cover. Is it becoming too commercial? Or will Chaldeans always value the true meaning? Special Christmas songs will be playing throughout the show and we encourage all our listeners to share their favorite Christmas memories. Rafed Yaldo, will call in, live, to share his current journey in Iraq and update us on the status of the Christmas Spirit back home. On behalf of The Boiler Room, we would like to wish all our listeners and your families a very Merry Christmas! God Bless!
Can you retell the story of the first Christmas without reading it? While everyone is making their requests known to Santa Clause and buying toys, their children don’t need, it’s no wonder how we often forget the story of the first Christmas. On my Christmas tree, I have an ornament that says Jesus is the Gift. Do you believe this is true? Is the story of redemption for all humanity the real gift or have we lost sight of the true meaning of Christmas?
