    Fitness ZumbaBaby Style

    in Health

    Zumba established a foothold in the U.S. fitness industry after the considerable success of infomercials launched in 2002. By 2007, Zumba had spread to six continents and established credibility with such fitness icons as the American Council on Exercise, the Aerobics Fitness Association of America and the IDEA Health and Fitness Association.

    Debbie "ZumbaBaby" Fisher is a a child of GOD and a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. She often says, "I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me."  Philippians 4:13 sets the foundation on how she lives her daily life. Starting and Ending her day with the very one who gives her LIFE. She's a wife, mother, IT manager, entrepreneur, sister, friend, fitness lover and the list goes on and on.

    Reality hit her in 2009 after a doctors visit and realized she needed to do something different because she was approaching 180 pounds and a size 14. She was looking to a life of health issues associated with being overweight.  Debbie decided to try the traditional methods of losing weight - joining a gym, hiring a personal trainer and creating a long "DO NOT EAT" list, but found herself becoming bored and unhappy!

    In 2011, she took my first Zumba class with Liliana Shea who is from Columbia but resides in the Raleigh area. Debbie instantly fell in love with Zumba! She states, "Zumba has become the biggest life saver for me! Because I found something that I enjoy and look forward to doing each and every day even if it is a party of 1."

    Join me MSKeepItMoving on The Keep It Moving Blog Talk Radio Show with special guest Debbie "ZumbaBaby" Fisher. Learn why she feels you should focus on being healthy and not a certain size or weight. It's more than a look! It's a TESTIMONY!

    Increase Profits with Follow-Up

    in Business

    There are three ways for businesses to create more profits.

    1) Make new sales 2) Increase frequency and 3) Increase the amount spent per transaction. The most direct influence on all three of these ways to increase your profits has to do with your communication with the client or prospect. After the first contact it is all about the follow-up. 90% of sales people do not follow up enough and are leaving cash on the table. Ouch! 

    On this weeks show we will talk about follow-up, why it is important and what are the best methods to carry it out.

    Our guest for this show is Andrea Koochin.

    Andrea has worked in marketing and promotion for the over 20 years. She has solid background in understanding client preferences through her extensive experience in market research, television production and infomercials with companies such as Time Life and Guthie Renker. Through her experience, she discovered that these large promotions treated people like numbers and often fell short and don’t communicate in a way that creates loyal customers. As a result, Andrea turned her focus from small to medium businesses to address the follow up process. This is what truly builds a relationship and Andrea is passionate about relationships.
