13 days without a word–hey, I’m focused

I started blogging in November 2003. I think 13 days without a post may be a record for me. (There may have been one time a couple years ago when I was switching blog platforms where I also went this long or longer without a post.) My regular readers know how much I enjoy blogging, how I think every CEO should blog, and how much value you get when you participate in open, online conversations about all kinds of topics. So a 13-day stretch without posting indicates how incredibly busy and focused I have become recently. To make up for the 13 days without a post, today's post may be my longest post ever. And unfortunately it's about my current business--not about internet marketing or entrepreneurship in general. So if you only read my blog for tips for internet entrepreneurs, you may want to skip this post.

Online Sales vs Phone Sales

Tomorrow, World Vital Records will begin building its call center under our new manager Scott Spencer. He worked at MyFamily.com (now The Generations Network) from 2003-2006. We are planning to hire 10-15 people in the next few weeks (part time and full time) to do genealogy sales, support and coaching.
