Rockers in the Rockies

I got my plane tickets to the Rockers in the Rockies in Boulder, CO tonight. I'll be getting in on Friday the 4th early. If anyone else is going to be there early let me know and we can go check Chris M's show out Friday night at the hotel. I'll also be going to Jon Gindick's Tampa Jam Camp coming up also. Check it out over at Jon Gindick's site. Both of these events are going to be very educational and fun. If you are looking to get to your next level in playing I highly recommend these seminars. They are worth much more than they cost and the fun and memories will last a lifetime. Some of my best harmonica experiences have come from spending time at these get togethers and building friendships that have really grown. Just a note to say I get no monetary compensation for sending people to these events, just the opportunity to share these great experiences with new and old friends.
The website for Rockers in the Rockies is up with details here. http://www.jasonricci.com/email/rockinrockies/

Hey Brian

How was the weekend?

I was hoping to make it but I had other previous commitments cast in stone long before I heard about it.

Good luck with all your business contacts Brian. It seems like yer gettin' a head of steam there and you've done it the right way. You're very even keeled about your approach and the way you present yourself.

Thanks Jeffl. I just treat people how I like to be treated. It helps being part of a great community of people though.

I've been in the car business for about 30 years, and one thing I discovered after I'd built up a good following (It took about 5 years ) was that I wasn't treating the newest customers as good as I had my new customers when I started. I had become successful enough that I started treating the newest ones more like they were another commission, and not being as open and inviting to them as I had been earlier. That was a mistake I vowed not to repeat, and a lesson I never want to forget. I'm back in sales now after 15 years in management, and I'm really enjoying the face to face contact with new customers again. And btw,Brian, having good product is a plus too. You have been able to compete price-wise with Victoria and the other high-line boutique-style builders, with apparently a great product. If you ever lose your product edge, the good customer relations won't be enough to keep you fed.

I always appreciate good advice. I will keep working to have my product line evolve and I will always do what I can to make sure I only release products which are better or fill a specific purpose. Once again thanks and I wish you the best being back in sales on your side.
