MIA features PGC Work!!

In the Spring/Summer 2009 issue of the Marble Institute of America’s (MIA) StoneDimension Magazine, PGC’s work is featured on pages 10 & 18. A few months ago, the MIA contacted us to send some photos of projects that we fabricated and installed. In turn, we asked our contractors to provide some photos of projects that we had installed for them. We had a great response and we were very happy to open the magazine and find two of Bremen Builders projects featured.

Please check out the above links to see the awesome projects. Check out more projects on our photo gallery that we have fabricated and installed.

If you are interested in having some of your projects featured on our website, in our showroom, or possibly in the StoneDimensions Magazine please contact me.

Feel free to share…

Favorite Things…

We all them…those days that just don’t seem to go right. Unfortunately, when we experience days like these, it is easy to feel down and unmotivated. In sales, this can especially be true. Thankfully, if you keep at it, a sale will come through and instantly lifts the spirits.

Yesterday, I came across an interesting perspective on how to restore your motivation when everything seems to be going wrong from “A Few Of Your Favorite Things,”  a Reader Tip, found in the May 2009 issue of Selling Power magazine  that I wanted to pass along.

The reader suggested to restore motivation, make a “neat stuff” list of everything that is going right.

  1. It is a beautiful sunny day.
  2. I got an appointment with a customer that I’ve been trying to get in contact with for a long time.
  3. A rebate check came in the mail.
  4. Etc.

The key is review your list daily, both morning and night, to keep the positive thoughts with you. “Research suggests that after one to two weeks of reviewing your list, you will start feeling more positively focused and energized.

Sounds like a simple way to try and keep positive to me. How about you?

Thanks for reading!
