Yet another Steve’s TOP TEN List!

So one of the trademarks of our four different SFS options is we inundate you with ideas, resources and procedures! GREAT except… sometimes our students and readers get a bit “overwhelmed”!

So here are some of our most popular (and useful) QuickTIPS:

Jump start your winter work with “The Law of Massive Action”! And to get them to not postpone their cleaning…

Got commercial? Then “cross market” your residential cleaning to your account’s employees. How to get those commercial jobs?

Morph yourself into a “consultant” with this Commercial Carpet Analysis form.

Traumatized insureds desperately want to feel in control. So explain (and show) the “Why And What” as you work!

A restoration contractor’s biggest challenge? The dreaded “Heightened Awareness” Syndrome!

And if your new hire doesn’t work out? Gently encourage “marginal employees” to move on with their life.
