  1. Hi Jody,I am so happy to see you are continuing to help Designers and Sales Consultants do a better job at providing service to their consumers. I retired about five years ago. At that time I was diagnosed with an atypical form of Parkinsons….no known cause and no cure….so for the last few years my efforts have been solely devoted to managing my symptoms….Jay (my husband) and now with the help of Hospice, is my 24/7 caregiver and writing this for me…we both send our wishes for your continued success (Jay)

    • Jay and Iris –
      I am so happy to hear from you! Your ears must have been burning as I just returned from New Orleans with the new NAHFA conference and Cherie Rose and I were speaking about you. Yes, I’m still busy with designers and retailers/salespeople and the challenges to increase revenue continue! Your name lovingly also came up with the Flexsteel group – so please know that you are thought of with appreciation and love for all you gave to all of us. We are carrying on what you pioneered and ‘sketching the room’ is as relevant as ever. You and Jay are in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you so much for being in touch. I love you. Jody

  2. I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, its rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays kccdbfgkbefa

    • Thanks, John. I apologize for not responding sooner…I write the content myself and have just hired a new marketing / social media assistant who is a great partner for me. My intention is to provide selling skills observations and recommendations for sales professionals in the home furnishings and interior design industries. Thank you so much for reading…keep enjoying and please share with others! Best, Jody

    • Thanks, Bill. It was great to talk with you and I can’t wait to hear what you accomplish at the event tonight! Keep me posted. Jody
