Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now If you don’t create some differentiated value throughout the sales process, starting from the very first meeting with your dream client, then you can expect to be commoditized. If they don’t get the experience of working with someone that they believe has a greater ability to help them produce results than any of their peers, your client will not perceive you as different enough to pay more.In a larger amount than you might imagine, you are the value proposition.If you don’t have the insights, ideas, business acumen, and situational knowledge that allows you to position yourself as a peer, a trusted advisor, and someone who can provide good counsel, then you are going to look and sound a lot like your competitors. When you look and sound like everyone else, you force the client to find the differentiation on their own, and the easiest place to find that is in your pricing.It is your job to explain why you are different, how you are different, and how that differentiation is worth paying more to obtain.The delta between your price and your competitor’s price is your problem to solve. You have to be able to explain why your prospective client needs to make that additional investment to produce the better results they need. You are also responsible for explaining how underinvesting is going to put their results at risk, and potentially cause even greater challenges.You have to be able to justify the delta between your price and your competitor’s pricing. If you want your prospective client to understand the difference, you have to teach them. You have to help them defend the investment inside their own company.If you can’t differentiate yourself and your offering, if you can’t provide value outside of your solution, and if you can’t justify the greater investment your solution requires, you’re going to need a pencil sharpener.

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have lost their appeals against transfer bans which were imposed on them for breaching rules on signing non-Spanish under-18 players, soccer’s governing body FIFA said on Thursday.The decision by FIFA’s Appeal Committee means that neither club can register players during the next two transfer windows and will have to wait until January 2018 to make any new signings.The bans were initially imposed by FIFA’s disciplinary committee in January, but were temporarily lifted pending appeals later the same month, allowing them to sign players in the transfer window which ended last month. (Also read: Striker Alvaro Morata pleased to be back with Real Madrid)A statement said the Appeal Committee had decided to “confirm in their entirety the decisions rendered by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee in the respective cases relating to the protection of minors.”FIFA also maintained fines of 900,000 Swiss francs ($925,069.38) on Atletico Madrid and 360,000 francs on record 11-times European champions Real.Both clubs, who have denied wrongdoing, have also been issued with a reprimand and a warning and given 90 days in which to regularise the situation of all minor players concerned. (Also read: Atletico Madrid agree to sign Argentina midfielder Nicolas Gaitan)Real and Atletico met in the final of this year’s Champions League with Real winning on penalties after a 1-1 draw.FIFA said that its rules, which ban international transfers of under-18 players except in certain circumstances, existed to “protect minors who move to other countries and prevent soccer clubs from exploiting them.”advertisementFIFA says that, in the past, trafficking of young players has left to some minors being virtually abandoned on the streets of foreign countries.”Although FIFA’s approach may appear harsh in an individual case, it is only by enforcing the rules consistently and strictly that the abuses of the past can be avoided and a proper and safe development of minor players secured,” FIFA said.FIFA received 2,716 applications for the transfer of minors in 2015, of which 393 were rejected, it said.($1 = 0.9729 Swiss francs)

Story Highlights “They are in the final stages now,” said Executive Director of the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA), Audley Gordon. Regulations to govern solid waste management in the island are expected to be completed in short order. “So for those people who are anxious for us to be more robust in our enforcement strategy, the regulations to empower us are near completion and we are looking at months. Then we will have the kind of enforcement strategy that the public expects of us,” he added. Regulations to govern solid waste management in the island are expected to be completed in short order.“They are in the final stages now,” said Executive Director of the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA), Audley Gordon.“So for those people who are anxious for us to be more robust in our enforcement strategy, the regulations to empower us are near completion and we are looking at months. Then we will have the kind of enforcement strategy that the public expects of us,” he added.Mr. Gordon was speaking to journalists at the first clean-up activity under the Western Parks and Markets (WPM) enforcement initiative in Negril, Westmoreland, recently.He said that among the critical areas that will be covered under the regulations is public cleansing.“There is much more that we can do; for example, we can demand of people to produce proof, especially commercial entities, that they have proper arrangements in place to remove their solid waste,” Mr. Gordon said.He noted that the regulations also cover e-waste, which addresses the proper way to discard electronic appliances such as mobile phones, computers and television sets.“We do not want those things mixing with the regular garbage. There must be a proper was in which we deal with them. We have already secured a site through the Sugar Company of Jamaica in Hill Run (St. Catherine), which will temporarily house e-waste until we can export it or an investor can take it off us, because there is a market for those discarded items,” Mr. Gordon pointed out.“We need somewhere in the West as well, where we can have a permanent base and can say to the public, this is where you take it (e-waste), so that it is not thrown around and pose a danger to our children,” he continued.Mr. Gordon noted that fines associated with the regulations will provide a deterrent against breaches.The cleaning operation in Negril was focused on clearing waste items as well as overgrown plants at two open lots in the resort town.The initiative was undertaken by WPM in an effort to destroy mosquito and rodent breeding sites, and to prevent the lots from becoming dumping sites.
Story Highlights Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Hon. Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange, has announced the staging of an Economic Opportunities workshop, particularly for the residents of St. Thomas.The Minister was speaking at the unveiling ceremony for Jamaica’s third and final gateway sign to the island’s first World Heritage Site, the Blue and John Crow Mountains, on June 8 at Port Morant Square, St. Thomas.The workshop, to be held in the second quarter of the financial year, will be hosted in partnership with Young Enterprise Scotland (YES), an organisation out of Edinburgh, Scotland, which provides assistance for enterprise and entrepreneurship programmes and development opportunities to communities, such as Port Morant.“YES has agreed to work with the Ministry on the Blue and John Crow Mountains Economic Opportunities Workshop, to make their training module available so participants of the workshop will be able to exploit opportunities that will become available through the Blue and John Crow Mountains World Heritage Site,” the Minister said.Miss Grange said that 20 will be specially invited from St. Thomas to participate in the workshop.“These individuals must have started a little business or have a viable proposal for a business that can take advantage of the cultural resources and the opportunities within St. Thomas. We are excited about exposing our entrepreneurs living around the boundaries of our World Heritage Site to develop viable cultural and creative enterprises,” she said.One area the Ministry is particularly keen on promoting is gastronomy (food preparation).Miss Grange said she is well aware of the many food creations of the parish that would be a treat to visitors, both local and foreign.The Minister said gastronomy is a very promising market and there is no reason the parish should not be making its contribution in the cultural and creative industries and reaping rewards.Miss Grange said she wants to ensure that St. Thomas, with its own creative and cultural flair in food preparation, has a chance to enjoy its fair share of the tourism pie.

Washington DC: President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he would be willing to accept information from a foreign country on his opponent in the 2020 election race, after years of denying Moscow helped him win office. Trump team contacts with Russians during the 2016 presidential race led to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into possible collusion and obstruction of justice, as well as several similar and ongoing efforts in Congress. The Russia issue has consumed the Trump presidency for the past two years, and his new remarks suggested he still sees nothing wrong with a US political candidate accepting help from a foreign power. Also Read – ‘Hong Kong won’t rule out Chinese help over protests'”I think you might want to listen… there’s nothing wrong with listening,” Trump said when asked by ABC News what he would do if a country such as Russia or China offered him such information. He denied the suggestion that that would amount to foreign meddling in a US election. “It’s not an interference, they have information — I think I’d take it,” Trump said. “If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go maybe to the FBI — if I thought there was something wrong,” Trump said. Also Read – Pak Army chief accompanies Imran at key meetings in ChinaMueller’s report on his investigation stated that while there was insufficient evidence to charge Trump with criminal conspiracy, he was happy enough to benefit from Russian dirty tricks. Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden said that Trump was “welcoming” foreign interference in US voting. “This isn’t about politics. It is a threat to our national security. An American President should not seek their aid and abet those who seek to undermine democracy,” Biden said on Twitter. Another Democratic presidential hopeful, Elizabeth Warren, seized on Trump’s comments to repeat her strident calls for him to be impeached. “The #MuellerReport made it clear: A foreign government attacked our 2016 elections to support Trump, Trump welcomed that help, and Trump obstructed the investigation,” Warren tweeted. “Now, he said he’d do it all over again. It’s time to impeach Donald Trump.” Democrats in Congress continue to seek testimony and information as they press the president with multiple investigations — mostly related to Russia meddling, obstruction and the 2016 election — and are debating among themselves whether there is enough evidence and political space to pursue impeachment. The president’s remarks came on the same day that his son Donald Jr was grilled by US senators about his contacts with Russians. The younger Trump likely faced questioning about his role in arranging meeting at Trump Tower in June 2016 that included his father’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, then-campaign manager Paul Manafort, and a Russian lawyer offering dirt on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. “If it’s what you say, I love it,” Trump Jr had written in response to a 2016 email offering the information. Some Democrats suspect Trump Jr may have lied in previous testimony in 2017 about what he and his father knew about the now-infamous meeting, as well as other connections between the Trump campaign and Russia. The Trump team had initially tried to cover up the meeting, providing conflicting stories about its purpose and what happened. Mueller’s report detailed how the president’s former lawyer Michael Cohen recalled that Trump Jr may have told his father about the meeting. The president has denied knowing about it ahead of time.

23 September 2011An Ecuadorian accord to leave vast oil reserves, conservatively valued at $7.2 billion, untapped to protect biodiversity in a national park in return for half that amount from the international community was heralded at the United Nations today as a model in the fight to save the planet. “It is not often that a government chooses sustainable development over easy money,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told a high-level meeting on the Yasuní-ITT Initiative, under which the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and Ecuador agreed last year to set up a trust fund to protect the Yasuní National Park, a World Biosphere Reserve in the country’s Amazon region, with an estimated 846 million barrels of crude oil lying under it.“The initiative is helping Ecuador move on multiple fronts towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs),” he told the event, held on the sidelines of the General Assembly’s annual general debate in the presence of Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa.“It is supporting indigenous livelihoods and culture. It is protecting biodiversity. It will help to avoid emissions of greenhouse gases. And it is showing the contribution that can be made through an innovative financial mechanism.”The MDGs are the targets set at the UN Millennium Summit in 2000 to slash hunger and poverty, maternal and infant mortality, a host of diseases and lack of access to education and health care by specifically measurable amounts, all by 2015.UNDP estimates the accord will prevent the discharge into the atmosphere of more than 400 million tons of carbon that would have resulted from the burning of fossil fuels if the oil had been extracted at the Ishpingo-Tambococha-Tiputini (ITT) fields.Ecuador and UNDP have established a trust fund so that contributions from Governments and others can be channelled transparently for social development, renewable energy, reforestation and conservation, as well as for research, science, technology and innovation.“The world is just learning about Yasuní,” Mr. Ban said. “I hope word travels far and wide. Support is growing and material contributions are beginning to flow. It is especially moving to see people around the world getting involved and contributing, even if only small amounts. The initiative is clearly striking a chord… I encourage you to leave here with this message: Sustainable development is possible; it only takes leadership, creativity and commitment.”General Assembly President Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser said the high-level meeting offered the opportunity to raise political awareness and galvanize political will and commitments to address the interlinked challenges of biodiversity loss.“Our relationship with Earth is one of mutual interdependence,” he added. “We rely on the Earth’s abundant resources as much as it relies on us to succeed in the struggle against climate change. “We must come together to take action in the fight against global warming, taking into account the principle of common but differentiated responsibility. For this reason, meetings aimed at finding creative solutions to climate change, such as this one, are so important.”During the meeting, which was also attended by four indigenous representatives, the trust fund received commitments of $53.3 million from the Governments of Italy, Colombia and Peru and from regional governments in Belgium and France.
TORONTO — A weaker Canadian dollar left a mark on the bottom line of Indigo Books & Music Inc. in the latest quarter.The company’s chief financial officer Laura Carr says the company took a $3-million hit on its bottom line during the first quarter ended June 27, a direct impact from the exchange rate with the U.S. dollar.The details were disclosed in a conference call with analysts on Wednesday after Indigo reported its financial results a day earlier.Carr said Indigo managed to absorb the effect of the exchange rate by funnelling the costs into its book and merchandise prices and securing better agreements with its suppliers by increasing the volume of its orders.Book and magazine prices are often a hot topic when currency exchange rates dramatically fluctuate, partly because it’s one of the few retail goods that lists how much they cost in each currency on the same product.When the value of the loonie soared to near par with the American dollar several years ago, some consumers complained they were paying excessive markups on books when factoring in the better exchange rate.Indigo Books & Music Inc sales rise for seventh straight quarterE-book sales are flattening, but does that mean the technology is dying as consumers unplug?Eventually, publishers and retailers made changes to factor in at least some of the improved currency rates.However, as the loonie sits around 76 cents U.S., retailers are facing the challenge of recouping lost profit margins.Late Tuesday, Indigo reported it tightened losses by more than 35 per cent over a year ago, helped by growth in its general merchandise business.The company posted a net loss of $9 million for the quarter, or 35 cents per share, compared to a loss of $14 million, or 55 cents per share, in the same period a year ago.Overall, revenue climbed to $189.4 million from $180.8 million in the same period of last year.Indigo Books & Music operates 90 large format stores under the Chapters and Indigo banners, as well as 126 smaller locations with names like Coles, Indigospirit and SmithBooks.
Precision Drilling posts Q3 loss but foresees improved rig bookings for 2017 by The Canadian Press Posted Oct 21, 2016 4:55 am MDT Last Updated Oct 21, 2016 at 5:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CALGARY – Precision Drilling Corp. (TSX:PD) had a $47 million net loss for the third quarter as revenue declined 45 per cent from last year.The loss amounted to 16 cents per share, which was an improvement from the Calgary-based drilling company’s 2015 third quarter loss of $87 million or 30 cents per share.Revenue declined in all of Precision Drilling’s operations, with the total falling to $202 million from $364 million in the third quarter of 2015.The company’s adjusted earnings were down 63 per cent from last year, dropping to $41 million from $111 million. Revenue per operating hour dropped to $599 from $786, a decline of nearly 24 per cent.Despite the bleak results in the quarter ended Sept. 30, Precision Drilling’s chief executive says customer sentiment has improved along with strengthening commodity prices.“This improved outlook is evident in the conversations we are having with customers, but more importantly in our activity increases, recent contract bookings and improving pricing environment,” Precision Drilling president and CEO Kevin Neveu said in a release Friday.“During the third quarter, we gained visibility through rig commitments in both the U.S. and Canada and report seven rig years added to our 2017 contract book, bringing average rigs under contract for next year to 42.“With 37 rigs operating in the U.S. today, our activity is up 70 per cent from second quarter lows, while the industry increase is approximately 35 per cent. We believe our market share increase and contract additions reflect both the desirability of Precision’s high performance Super Triple rigs and our customers’ improving outlook.”
The Argentina national team left-back believes his country has the best player in the world, but they don’t know how to use him.At club level, Barcelona star Lionel Messi is simply one of the best, if not the best player in the whole world.But at the national team level, he has had trouble, not being able to lift any silverware with the senior squad.This has pushed him away from the team as he hasn’t played with them since they were eliminated by France in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.But for defender Nicolas Tagliafico, the problem is his country doesn’t know how to take advantage of a player like Messi.“We have seen two glorious stages in our football with [Cesar Luis] Menotti and [Carlos] Bilardo, which are two different ways of understanding football,” Tagliafico was quoted by Goal.“We have not found out which is the best [style of play] for our time, or which one is the best to help Leo [Messi].”Top 5 players who can actually replace Messi and Ronaldo Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 13, 2019 After Pep Guardiola’s latest defense of Messi and Ronaldo, we need to start talking about the Top 5 players who can replace them.Replacing Messi and…“He’s the best player in the world and we do not know how to take advantage of him,” he added.“We have to find an idea or a coach that makes us understand the opportunity he represents and bring that order we need.”“It’s not the same to be in a club for 15 years knowing everything,” he tried to explain.“In the national team, either because of the change of president, coach or because of the passion we have that blinds us, we are not able to put together projects every year. That’s not easy.”“Leo did not have the luck to be crowned. He reached three finals, but we do not have the project that, for example, Barca does,” he concluded.Argentina will play two friendlies on March: the first against Venezuela on the 23rd, while three days later they will play against Morocco.

Just over one-third (36%) of respondents worldwide have a global parental leave policy covering multiple types of leave, according to research by Mercer.Its Global parental leave report, which surveyed 1,200 organisations globally, of which 112 are based in the UK, also found that 64% of respondents provide maternity leave for the birth mother only, while 24% of respondents offer this leave to the primary caregiver, regardless of gender.The research also found:38% of respondents provide a paid paternity leave at a level above the statutory minimum.54% of respondents offer paternity leave to the birth father only, but an additional 34% provide this leave for either the birth father or secondary caregiver, regardless of gender.19% of respondents that have a global policy in place cover all four types of leave, including maternity, paternity, adoption and parental.Of the two-thirds of respondents which do not currently have a global policy in place, 12% are considering implementing one in the future.Ilya Bonic (pictured), senior partner and president of the talent business at Mercer, said: “As benefits play a more significant role in employees’ choice of employer, parental leave policies are expanding beyond traditional maternity leave provisions.“Parental leave policies can have a positive effect on both employees and employers; they help the workforce maintain a better work-life balance, especially the younger generation, and they promote the [organisation] as a more attractive place to work, improving retention during a time of continued demand for highly-skilled talent.“The complexity of different local statutory requirements along with administrative intricacies may make a global parental leave policy seem impractical. Despite these concerns, some compelling reasons, like no longer adhering to requirements that are not compatible with diversity and equality strategies and creating a level playing field for employees in all countries, have prompted [organisations] to consider a global policy.”
(WSVN) – Broward County Public Schools is celebrating a group of educators with a passion for knowledge, who are vying to become the district’s next teacher of the year.There are five finalists in the running, but only one can be head of the class.From teaching students in the classroom, to preparing them for the real world, these top teachers are being recognized for their hard work and dedication.One finalist vying for the coveted award is Diana Escobar from Coral Cove Elementary School. Escobar says her passion for shaping students, motivates her to keep doing what she loves.“When I look at these kids, I look at them like they’re my kids too. I treat them as if they’re my own,” said Escobar, “and I want to help the, I want to make a difference, I want to create a society of kids that are kind and humble to this world as well.”First grade teacher Helen Kassim says teaching at Sunland Park Academy is a craft and a gift. “We have fun learning,” she said. “They teach me everyday, I teach them something everyday and we just grow together.”Pompano Beach Elementary teacher Stacey Brown says teaching is something she was just born to do, and she’s just excited to be one of the finalists. “This is something I’ve loved my entire my life, and I look forward to coming to school every day,” said Brown. “I don’t go to work, I go to school, and I’m a part of this school and the kids are a part of me. I take them home with me practically, so it’s just something I was born to do and I’m happy to do it.”On the high school side, Frank Pizzo says his students keep him on his toes and that keeps him loving what he does at Deerfield Beach High School.“Teaching is unique in that it’s new everyday,” said Pizzo. “You never know how your 38 students and seven different classes are gonna act, so trying to stay one step ahead of them is a unique opportunity.”Lastly, Tammy Freeman says she strives to teach her students to use their voice beyond the classroom walls at Monarach High School.“I make sure all of my students know that they have a voice, and that’s important but not just in my classroom but in their other classrooms as well in life.”The Teacher of the Year award will be given out Thursday at 6 p.m.., at the Broward County Convention Center.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

The point which is confusing is why it is only problem for LB Nagar area hotel managements,” says Upendra, an employee in HDFC.
