Business Solutions for Maximizing Profits February 2007
For over a dozen years, NSPG has been providing the tools that allow contractors to increase profits and minimize business hassles. With our simple-to-use-tools, you can make being a business owner what you always wanted to it be - successful, profitable and rewarding.

Learning to Profit
Most successful business owners belong to one or more industry related organization that provide learning resources and a support network.  The benefits of these organizations go far beyond the business tips and tools they can provide.  The opportunity to meet and learn from other successful business people can be a significant resource on the road to business and personal success.

Gene Love Plumbing & ElectricalLast month I had the good fortune to attend a seminar sponsored by Nexstar which is one of these industry organizations.  Nexstar is a member owned organization dedicated to building relationships among its members so they can help each other apply what successful members have already tested, proven and implemented.

Tammy Cagle, Owner of Gene Love Plumbing & ElectricThe seminar in Columbia, SC was one of the most successful Money Masters Seminars I have ever attended. The seminar attendees were willing and ready to work with Nexstar to improve every aspect of their businesses and improve their company profits. During the seminar we were privileged to have a tour of Gene Love Plumbing & Electric with Tammy Cagle, the company’s owner.

Bobby Elvington, Service ManagerAll employees at Gene Love are able to deliver value to their customers since they consistently follow the business concepts outlined in Nexstar’s training. The first thing you notice when visiting Gene Love is the extremely positiveGene Love Plumbing & Electric attitude towards detailed work and customer service. This commendable attitude has created a profitable, thriving company with a growing customer base, and a high employee retention rate.

Tammy is doing a great job building a company that customers want to use and employees want to work for! Tammy acknowledged how Nexstar’s staff, programs, and training techniques have been crucial to her current and continuing success. It was a pleasure meeting the entire Gene Love professional team, and seeing how they make a great company really work.

Regardless of what industry organization you choose, the opportunity to learn from your successful peers can be an important in achieving your own business success.  I urge you to make finding and joining a high quality industry organization a priority for your business development.  If you need a bit of help getting started, give us a call and we'll help you find an organization that may fit your needs.

Freebie of
the Month

The freebie of the month is a web site or product that we feel gives you some-thing worth looking at or using that costs you nothing.

Free Anti-Virus Software

We all know that keeping an up-to-date anti-virus on all of our computers is as important as it is problematic.  The traditional big anti-virus suppliers sell their software with big rebates that are always a hassle.  Now you have an alternative that requires no payments and no rebates.  You just need an email address.

AOL is offering a free copy of the top-rated Kaspersky Labs anti-virus to anyone who wants it.  Simply go to their free download site, enter your email address, and you can then download and install the anti-virus software.

They will be sending update notices and probably other emails from AOL, so you may want to use a secondary email address so you don't have to see these emails in your primary business inbox.  Setting up a free email account with hotmail, yahoo, or gmail is quick and easy, so you can direct this type of email there.

Please read the license agreement to be sure you comply with the few limited requirements for use of the free software.

If you have a favorite Free site, let us know.
