Good customer service priceless, dying commodity

“A lways treat your employees exactly as you want them to treat your best customers.”—Stephen R. Covey

Customer service, good customer service is priceless and bad customer service is the fastest way to damage a business. As business owners, it is your job to set the tone and teach your employees how customer service works and what your expectations are for them.

No other method works as well as leading by example. Make it a point to show one good act of customer service to your employees each day and see how well it pays off.

Pick up will be from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 9 at the Meadowbrook Baptist Church Fellowship Hall.

We are taking applications for vendors and barbecue teams. So get your spot asap. I will also be coming to see many of my business owners for sponsorships. We expect huge crowds so I know we are all looking forward to that.

I hope you all have a great week.
