Becoming a Leader
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” John Quincy Adams – 6th President of the United States
With this being the last day that RV Daily Report will publish for this year, we want close out 2017 by saying Thank You to our readers, advertisers and the “leaders” in our lives. We appreciate your business and support.
In the coming year we want to become the platform you can stand on to share your story and display your products. We want to tell your stories of success and share your visions of moving forward.
Key ways we can help you tell your story and tell it often are through your articles, advertising, video media and press releases.
Ronnie Garrett, our editor-in-chief, will be waiting to get your press releases, your stories and hear about your latest adventures. Those of you who are writers and bloggers with a story to share, reach out to Ronnie so she can introduce you to the RV Daily Report family. (I can tell you from firsthand experience she loves to get word documents instead of a PDF). Contact Ronnie at Editor@RVDailyReport.com.
Something New for 2018:
Do you remember a fella by the name of Paul Harvey? He was probably one of the best story tellers I can remember when I was growing up. I really liked his pieces that he always ended them by using his signature line…. “And Now You Know the Rest of Story”. This guy could feed out clues and little hints to keep you engaged and then he would spring the ending on you. Afterwards, somehow you felt smarter knowing that tidbit of information he left you with.
My Uncle Fred was a lot like that. Uncle Fred would share with us some of his camping, fishing or Navy stories around the campfire that would keep us asking for more. As kids we were always spell bound to hear him tell us a story we probably had heard a hundred times before and we could finish his lines for him. But somehow it was just engaging the last time as it was the 1st time we heard it.
Well, RV Daily Report is looking for our very own Paul Harvey or Uncle Fred type of individual or group of individuals that can spin a story and tell the history of their RVing experiences.
Consider this as the casting call for the RV Daily Report’s very own Uncle Fred, RV storyteller extraordinaire. The RV experience is one of memories made and memories shared. Become part of the family and share your stories as the RV Daily Report Uncle Fred or Fredweinna (if you happen to be a lady).
Through our strategic relationship with Workamper News the gate keeper to North America’s largest group of full time, part-time and wannabe RVers, RV Daily Report now has access to a very large group of product testers.
For those of you that are looking for another way to promote your products and to tell your story we have opportunities for you in some new and different formats. Utilizing these third-party testers, their articles and short video pieces along with advertisements in RV Daily Report and Workamper News, your story and products can be shared to a larger and varied audience.
Rebecca Smith, National Sales Director is the go-to person to help tell your story through these variety of marketing methods. She loves to hear ….”What if we….” Contact Rebecca at Rebecca@RVDailyReport.com
As many of you know Lady E and I have been on the road the last five years conducting seminars at RV shows and RV training for dealers and consumers. Recently we were involved in the purchasing of the Texan RV Park in Athens, Texas, that is being used as the home base for the National RV Training Academy.
We are in the process of building the Big Red School House and Community Center which is a 12,000-square-foot training facility that is one hour southeast of Dallas, Texas. The Big Red School House will be utilized for classroom and hands on training for the RV Industry and other groups needing technical support.
We are looking for manufacturers, suppliers, vendors and others that need to have a place to conduct their technical training at or have a technical training program developed for their product line.
We are also looking for technical instructors that can come in and train on specific topics or products. These trainers are needed for short term gigs that can run from a few days to a week or so. Companies that have products that need a location to train at or individuals that have product knowledge drop us a line.
We are scheduling for 1st quarter of 2018 a Train the Trainer program for those of you looking to make a change in your career or a new adventure now that you have retired.
Your knowledge and experiences are a terrible thing to waste. The RV industry needs you as we grow and develop new technical personnel for all facets of the RV lifestyle.
If you have been a service manager, service advisor, technician or some other technical type and you are looking for a part time or as we call it “some of the time” gig send me an email there may be a slot for you in this Program.
Contact me at Terry@RVDailyReport.com with your information and what you can bring to the table.
RV Daily Report will return on Jan. 8, 2018, with a new look and new goals that we believe will inspire you to dream more, help you to learn more but most of to encourage you to become more.
I close by asking three simple questions ……
- What are you doing to change your situation”
- “What can we do for you?” and
- “What If …….?”
Have a Merry Christmas and Prosperous 2018
Thank you for your business in 2017 and we look forward to seeing you next year.
The Team at RV Daily Report
Cooper, Lady E, Ronnie, Rebecca and ……of course Moe the Wonder Wienie Dog
