The Power of the Handwritten Note

By Geno Stampora on December 6, 2012

In the midst of holiday insanity, don’t forget to use this time to thank the people around you for their friendship, support and for being loyal clients. I am a strong believer in regularly sending cards and letters.  I believe the way to someone s heart is through the mail, “snail” mail.  The handwritten note is still the most intimate way to get your message across. It has become even more impactful because it is rarely used anymore.  Even when the mail is used today, much of it is computer generated and very impersonal. Over the years when asked about the tips and ideas to be more successful, I always mention the power of cards, notes, and letters. Follow these simple ideas and watch what happens: The goal is to be memorable, to leave a lasting impression. The tool is …

8 Movie Quotes Entrepreneurs Live By, Written by John Hayes

By Geno Stampora on November 11, 2016

There’s nothing us marketers love more than a good old inspirational quote. Your social media network of choice is probably bursting with “wise words” from the great and good throughout history, designed to kick you in the butt and inspire you to go on and do greater things (or at the very least earn a few social media “likes” along the way). The movies are a great source of inspiration when it comes to getting the creative juices flowing. Just for fun, we’ve compiled 8 of our favorite quotes from the silver screen that could have easily been written in the pages of a business manual. 1. “If you build it, they will come”: Actually a misquote from the classic baseball movie “Field of Dreams.” The actual quote stated “If you build it, he will come” – but you get …

The Greatest Enemy of Learning is Knowing

By Geno Stampora on July 12, 2012

One of the best lessons I have ever learned is this:  the greatest enemy of learning is knowing. Once you think you know, you build a barrier that prevents you from becoming more. One of the major keys to life is to always be searching for more.  We must always be looking to learn.  Some say it is to “have a student’s heart”.  Some say just always seek knowledge. The only real thing that separates us from others is our willingness to learn and to use that new learning in a positive way.  Every now and then, it is a good idea to actually reserve time in your day or week for learning.  This will require some planning.  “What does not get scheduled, does not get done.”  You could read, study a CD or DVD or just observe to learn …

The Art of Balance in Life (It’s All About Your Plan)

By Geno Stampora on May 8, 2012

The art of balance in life has always been a great challenge for me personally. Balance is the elusive butterfly in life. There are times it is there and then in a moment it is gone. This is normal. It happens. I believe the first step to achieving balance is to study your quality of life. I try to make every major decision with my personal and family quality of life in mind. How will this affect me? How will this affect my family? Be realistic though. Do you like to shop? Do you like nice stuff? Do you like to travel? Do you like a nice car? Do you want to live in a nice house? All of these questions and more can and will affect your definition of balance. I am lucky. I love what I do for a living. …
