During the weeks of February 12th and 19th, I had the pleasure of getting to know 20 other new Yellow Book employees from across the midwest. It took us very little time in figuring each other out and making what could have been the longest two weeks of our lives, an enjoyable (even when stressful) time. Our instructor Steve was hilarious, if not for his character, most of us would have stayed sleep. We had the wild ones and the quite ones, (who by the end of class weren’t that quite anymore) we varied so much in age and culture, but we all were able to get a laugh out of each other.

Thank you to all for your support and insite. Steve no other trainer can compare to your style…thanks. Will, patten that “juice”…Brian, race you to the “Club”…Bill, you are a funny man…Matt, you have a great opportunity in front of you good luck and put that Blackberry in overdrive…Rachel, by the time you read this you have smothered you baby in kisses, hope it was fun being me…Erica, you still have the coolest manager…Chad, we’ll always have Chinese…Jon, I’m getting my parking space back…Jack, thanks for being a good sport…Matt, glad you found your specks…Kevin, you the man and thanks for your kindness…Todd, I’ve started to try and talk my wife into the phone…Joe, no place could be boring with you around…Jenny, congrats on the nuptials in the coming months…Wendy, can’t wait to see you hit that first sale…Janet, I wish I could have convinced you to sing for us…Aaron, you are a funny dude thanks for the conversations…Wayne, I guess I’m your name sake, hope the wisdom follows…Dan, how’s Katrina?…Ken, thanks for the talks man, we’re going to do this.

And to all…
Good Luck!! Sell or be Sold!!

We at Yellow Book…. Hear, See, Speak…no evil (after training anyway)…

Role play, role play and more role play…

A bunch of us went out for a last meal before the area managers came in for final role play…

Jon was bored, Jack just woke up and who knows what Matt was doing…

Kevin (left) was kind enough to lend me a room during the snow storm…I paid him back by keeping him up snoring…Todd just mastered solitaire on his new phone…

Wendy took time for a shot…

and our first to say he’s going to get President’s Club…Brian…

everyone else is serious, but Bill had a way to find something funny somewhere…

Todd, Aaron, Dan and Jenny take time for this pic…(of course Jenny had to approve of her pic before this could go public)

Ken was the man, ex footballer and big time shot caller…(even though living a exit away still couldn’t get him in on time)

yes, even I had time for a pic…this was my comfortable chair, on each break this is where you would find me…

Until then…
