Asking For Help – Weakness or Strength?

Every interaction in our life is unique to us because of the perception that we view the interaction from. What makes this very interesting is that the standpoint you perceive from can change in a split second. One minute I may be a confident person in a good mood that looks at an interaction as a positive exchange. This same interaction could happen in a moment where I am uncomfortable or exposed and be looked at as negative or frustrating. This makes everything we do unpredictable and sometimes challenging.


If predicting how our own perception of something is difficult to do and hard to grasp, why do we have a tendency of assuming how someone else will perceive us? This is something people struggle with in a work environment. Do we think about the conversations that we are going to have and try to predict how the person is going to react? I think we assume so much about what they will think of us or of what we are saying that it often times causes a loss of confidence or a lapse in judgment. Read More

So let’s discuss some simple steps to keep your emails short, sweet, and direct. Read More

Introducing Ian Gillette – Direct Response Marketing Testing Coordinator

Ian Blog PicMy name is Ian Gillette. No, my father does not own the Gillette shaving company. That would be pretty cool if he did though. Free razors for life! I am the Direct Response Marketing Testing Coordinator. I have been with Progrexion since November 3rd, about 4 months now. 4 months in, I can actually understand most conversations. I can’t tell you how lost I was listening to people in the office carry on conversations about ZPCs and E5’s and I would just look and smile. Google couldn’t even help me with that. Yes, I did Google it.
