What Does Sales Success and Body Building Have in Common? (Part 2)

22October14

How does it relate to sales success?
I would say it relates to success in the way that you need to combine drive, work ethic, attention to detail and letting go of the fear of failing. It’s ok to fail; I look at it as a lesson learned. It paves the way to getting it right. [...]

What Does Sales Success and Body Building Have in Common? (Part 1)

21October14

Several weeks ago I conducted a sales and product knowledge training in Burlington, Vermont for Mohawk Industries. In the front row was a rather petite, attractive and outspoken young woman named Marion Posluszny. Marion is part of the management team at Wholesale Flooring in North Hampton, NH.

My brother is a commercial photographer, but, more importantly, he is a guy who has adjusted to the recent developments in marketing both his business and the nature of his practice. He studied photography at the University of Dayton in Ohio. He sharpened his skills, working for our father’s design studio which offered services related [...]

CoWorking and the Uber-izing of Work: Idea Space and Workbar (Part 2)

17October14

What I saw in Boston tells me we will be seeing more such places in the coming years here in Vermont and other smaller markets. Plus as an architect working in the commercial architecture and interiors space, it’s important to get out and see interesting work elsewhere, so I can best serve my clients in the [...]

CoWorking and the Uber-izing of Work: Idea Space and Workbar (Part 1)

16October14

Recently I visited Boston touring as many CoWorking businesses I could find in two busy days while also attending a lighting design conference in between. Why you ask? I live and work in Vermont. I’m entrepreneurial at heart and see technology increasingly helping us work in a more mobile manner upending traditional notions of what [...]

Not Paying Attention to “A Couple of Bucks” Can Put you out of Business (Part 2)

15October14

Some retailers don’t subscribe to the theory of “taking in more than they give out.” Simply put, business is about numbers; how you get the numbers isn’t that simple. If you don’t know your numbers, eventually you will have a problem. Forget all the things between ‘money in money out,’ this is about money.

Does your staff give [...]

Not Paying Attention to “A Couple of Bucks” Can Put you out of Business (Part 1)

14October14

I have been fascinated by business since I was young. My dad loved to go to dinner with his customers, and for some reason, I always went along. I was never very quiet, but my dad didn’t mind my chatter. One time after looking at the menu I was overwhelmed by the prices. (As a [...]

Mezzanine Debt Considerations

10October14

Are you thinking about adding mezzanine debt to your capital stack? Some considerations are listed below:

Will the senior lender allow it?
How high does putting mezzanine debt in place bring your overall Loan-to-Cost on the property? Are you comfortable with the new amount of leverage?
What front-end fees/points are there? Can these be built into the loan [...]

Seeing and Creativity: The Importance of Practicing (Part 3)

9October14

Practicing might mean flipping open the piano door once a week, a month or once a day. It means setting up a special time on a regular basis to do something that engages you, helps complete you from a whole person standpoint. Practicing can mean creating a space which you by doing so, empty your [...]

Seeing and Creativity: The Importance of Practicing (Part 2)

8October14

I share this because listening, seeing and observation power my practice of architecture and design. Whether you are a business person without a creative bone in your body or one of the most creative people around, finding creative rituals and practicing again and again nurtures our minds to think other thoughts, to create empty spaces [...]
