Take note. The small things matter.
By Paul Boomer - Wizard of Ads

Supply the small things people don't expect. It's a big step to using Signaling Theory and adding to the Personal Experience Factor.

After leaving my family for a trip, I realized I'd forgotten to bring the one thing that helps me stay connected - the charger for my cell phone. Upon looking up addresses for area cellular companies with no avail, I asked the concierge at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel if they knew of any retail locations. No. But we have extras in the back if you'd like to use one. What kind of phone do you have?

Amway Grand Plaza Hotel anticipates the small things people forget or loose and provide them to you - free of charge. Often times hotels provide toothpaste, shampoo, mouthwash and other small items and that's great. But, they provided something that'd otherwise cost $38+. That was a nice surprise.

What can you provide people will appreciate but don't think of? The everyday things. Look around you. Take ideas from other industries.

Adding little details gives me more of a reason to talk about you to my friends. Isn't that what you want? I know the next time I'm in Grand Rapids, MI, I'll be staying at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel.

Attitude
This quote by Chuck Swindoll was never more appropriate than it is in the present state of the economy.

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.

Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude, I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

And so it is with you - we are in charge of our attitudes."
