TommyLog – Social Media Bringing People Together!

21 May
May 21, 2015

There’s no newsflash that I love social media. Social media has connected me with some amazing people and opportunities. Today was one of the GREAT days where I got to meet long time social media friend Patti Dobrowolski. She was invited to come to town to keynote the Cultivate Event being hosted by the Fox Cities Chamber. About 2 years ago, maybe more, I saw her TEDx talk and reached out to her on twitter. She responded and we have been fast friends ever since.

It’s amazing how social media works! You can see her Draw Your Future talk here http://www.tedxrainier.com/talks/patti-dobrowolski-draw-your-future/ or http://pattidobrowolski.com/

What a pleasure it was to meet you.

TommyLog – We Need A Lot More Bobs Around Here

Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet master PGA Teacher Bob Burns from Appleton, WI. I listened and was in awe the difference he is making without beloved wounded veterans. Bob helps teach vets who have been injured in the line of duty how to golf. Not just how to golf, but how to overcome things that their services of the country has taken away from them, like a lost limb or joint.

Bob showed me this huge 5″ thick 3-ring binder picture after picture of examples of how he helped soldier after solder. Some with lost legs, and arms. some bound to wheel chairs. Bob custom made golf gloves, braces and clubs for each individual to help them overcome their special needs and situations. Such a small act left such a HUGE impact. The more I looked,  the more the tears came and I just got so emotional seeing the smiles on these vets faces after spending time with Bob.

Bob was awarded 2014 Wisconsin National Guard Association Recognition Award for his service to these veterans.

What an honor it was to meet Bob and to see what he has done for our men and women in the armed services. The world needs a lot more Bobs in it!

I need to be more like Bob!

TommyLog – Do The Right Thing!

This week had a SUPER customer services story to share with you. I was getting my old iPhone 4S repaired. needed some good old TLC so i took it to my buddies at Electronics ETC on Northland. They diagnosed the problem and had the phone fixed in a very timely fashion. But when I came to pick it up, I saw that he screen was on in the same condition it was when i dropped it off. it has a rather large scratch in it. What happened next was just amazing. They offered me a discount on the work that I had completed. That just wasn’t going to do it for me as I was planning on reselling the phone on ebay… so they offered to replace the screen for … NO CHARGE! Not only did they take good care of my original issue, but they did the right thing, in taking care of the scratch.

There is a reason I send all my friends to Electronics ETC! YOU ROCK!
