Front Line Marketing
Welcome to Front Line Marketing and Sparks Fly!
Our objective with this newsletter is to reinforce the notion that each of us has a unique way of communicating.  The faster we understand and embrace the 'spark' in ourselves and others, the faster we will develop relationships.
Our communication will be more concise. We will become more engaged at work (and home). And the result will be loyalty and engagement from the people (and clients) with whom we interact.
groupFun ... at work?
In a recent interview with billionaire Richard Branson, he was asked the question,"You stress the importance of making work fun. Why should work be fun?"
Branson: A businessperson might spend 90% of their waking life at work, so if you are trying to balance work and fun, fun will always lose. It's better to make sure your work is something enjoyable and entertaining. Find what's right for you, or you'll never be happy, no matter how much money you make.
Sir Richard Branson, stressing fun and happiness?! Why? Because this successful entrepreneur has discovered that his success depends on the people working for him being happy. (And notice it doesn't have to do with money.) When people are happy, they are engaged.  When they are engaged, they engage the customer.  And when the customer is happy, they come back. They become advocates both with their money and their emotions.
Fun at work? Well... if it makes you happy...?
How engaged are your employees? How about your clients? With our surveys, Front Line Marketing will help you discover your businesses 'depth of engagement'.  Working from client and employee information,  we can make informed choices on how you want your business to grow.Front Line Marketing
In This Issue
Fun... at work?
In the last issue of Sparks Fly! we explored the power of gratitude. When we act genuinely thankful for what we have, we find more to be thankful for, become happier, and that attracts even more of what we want to us.
This month we continue that theme with an email from a young lady named Ashley.

Being Thankful

Being thankful. What a wake up call, to be thankful and look for the every day miracles in our lives.  If you look around, everything is a miracle and I wanted to share some of the miracles in MY life that I'm thankful for.  (Maybe I'm the one that needed a reminder for how blessed I really am.)

  • My son laughing!
  • My dogs sleeping so soundly that they snore
  • My husband folding laundry this morning!
  • The baby sleeping until 7:00 so I had a few minutes to myself to drink my coffee.
  • A friend who bought the last Wii in the store so MY brother could have HIS Christmas wish! 
  • Dear friends inviting me to Christmas carol with them who had no idea THIS was my favorite Christmas memory growing up
  • When my husband puts the toilet seat down.
  • A full e-mail inbox cause that just means I have special friends and family that have things to share with me.
  • The beautiful sunset on my way home Tuesday night that absolutely took my breath away

If you think about it, almost everything we experience is a miracle.   

If we all started paying attention, counting and being thankful for all the miracles we experience on a daily, hourly, minute by minute basis, I bet we'd all lose count.



"The most exquisite paradox - as soon as you give it all up, you can have it all.  As long as you want power, you can't have it. The minute you don't want power, you'll have more than you ever dreamed possible."
"You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want." Zig Ziglar
"We change the world not by what we say or do, but as a consequence of what we have become."

"Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes the ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.
