Buying a New Telephone System

Written by Andrew Taub

When buying a new telephone system, it's absolutely vital to go with a major name brand. Would you spend $3,000 on a new big screen TV from a company you never heard of? How about $25,000 on a new car from a no name company? Of course you wouldn't and you shouldn't risk your business on a phone system from a brand you've never heard of either and here's why.......


Major brands, like Toshiba and NEC, have rigorous screening processes for dealers. It takes a huge commitment of time and resources to become an authorized dealer, so you know you'll be buying from a reputable company. There are also many dealers in every state. NEC has over 50 dealers serving NJ alone. This assures you competitive pricing, fast service, and a host of options.

No name brands often have protected territories. That means that your dealer might berepparttar only one for 50 or 100 miles. If you have any problems with your dealer you might find your self with a system that can't be serviced or service that is extremely expensive.

Jackie's Story Jackie is 31 yrs of age andrepparttar 147671 Business Development Manager for an insurance company.

She always arrived at work at 8.00 a.m. and never leftrepparttar 147672 office before 6.30 p.m. most nights. She bemoanedrepparttar 147673 fact that work took over her life.

Throughrepparttar 147674 process of coaching we discovered thatrepparttar 147675 only reason Jackie didn't have a personal life was because she never planned to have one.

She realised she buried herself in her work needlessly. She avoided going home as she had nothing to look forward to. Jackie lived on her own, she wasn't in a relationship and had no hobbies. So she defined her purpose in life through her work. It made her feel worthwhile and wanted. Although her career was blossoming, Jackie was unhappy. In fact, she was lonely.

We worked on getting Jackie on purpose in her personal life.

Throughrepparttar 147676 coaching process we concentrated on three key goals which would be achievable and realistic over a six month period. Why? Because that timeframe is long enough to achieve measurable results and make long term changes.

Jackie's main goal areas related to her career, health and fitness and relationships. This is what she came up with:

Career Leave work by 5.00 p.m. each day.

Health and Fitness To be able to wear my black skirt. (Jackie had put on so much weight that she couldn't dorepparttar 147677 zip up.)

Relationship To be in a loving relationship.

There were a number of secondary goals, however these three wererepparttar 147678 key ones that Jackie wasrepparttar 147679 most passionate about and was prepared to take action on.

Career - Leave work by 5.00 p.m. each day We looked at Jackie's time management. I had her fill out our Weekly Planner which also can be used as a time sheet.
