Had a discussion where someone said that they ran a “real” business and did not have time for social media. I thought that was humorous, but very disturbing that many still look at it that way.

Very interesting Formula 1 race in Australia today. Track conditions changed throughout the race making pit strategy a coin toss. Many wrecks and off track excursions. Given everything that was going on, I am happy that Ferrari came away with a P3 & P4 finish. After last races P1 & P2, they are off to a nice start.

Great message at church today discussing peace. Everyone brings peace to a given situation. Some bring peace when they enter the situation. Others bring peace when they leave a situation. Which one applies to you?

I thought that I would post some pictures of the current Service Group Distribution location in Fullerton, California. We are rapidly outgrowing our space here. We need more office space, warehouse space and room for a training center. We also carry a full line of tools from Zola Distributing. If you are in the neighborhood, stop by and check us out.

Sort of late on posting this, but this was a picture taken during one of the excellent training sessions at the recent 3M Prestige Dealer meeting in Phoenix, Arizona. There were roughly 250 in attendance and there was a positive buzz in the air. The meeting had a great mix of education, entertainment and networking. General consensus was that the meeting went well and the mood was upbeat by all in attendance that I spoke with. It looks like 2010 is going to be a great year for 3M Prestige Dealers.

Great time with some west coast dealers in Phoenix at the 3M Prestige dealer meeting. Congrats to Brower Tint & Graphics, Climate Insulating and Tint Factory for bringing home some hardware. We had some good times that night and we are going to have a great 2010. If we continue to have fun, our businesses will prosper. I appreciate all of the business you guys give to SGD and our team will continue to do our best to earn the trust you place in us.
