Make sure you register EVERY phone number in your family.
Parents, kids, dog, whatever.
If they have a phone number, put it on these TODAY!
It seems like such a tiny (and yeah, boring) thing to do.
But if you’re a home buyer, the day after your closing is “recorded” (filed with the County), your phone will start ringing, and ringing, and ringing, with sales pitch after sales pitch about how to protect/save/upgrade your new home.
Home sellers? Yeah, just as bad.
Not at first, of course, but…
If you’re home doesn’t sell, and the MLS listing switches to “Expired” status, just take a short drive down to the Gulf of Mexico and throw your phone in.
Don’t actually do that. Pollution is bad. But it will be tempting!
But if you put your phone number(s!) on the Do Not Call lists at least 32 days BEFORE you take any action, you will be off the radar for most solicitation calls.
Some people take pride in cold-calling people on the Do Not Call lists.
It’s illegal, immoral (okay, downright RUDE!), and has hefty fines.
Do us all a favor – get their information (sweet talk them if you must) and report them immediately using those same websites.
And for the love of all things holy – do NOT do business with anyone slimy enough to cold-call a Do Not Call List phone number!
Do not reward bad behavior!
I’ll save you a scroll back up the page – here they are one more time:
It seems like such an obvious match – take Veterans fishing with other Veterans. Being out on the ocean, fresh salt air, with a fishing pole in hand, while surrounded by your brothers and sisters in a supportive (if occasionally bawdy) environment.
I was surprised to learn that VetCatch got its start right here in the Tampa Bay area of Florida!
This was their first major event, and there was a great turnout. Jeremy Gordon was gracious enough to be interviewed, where we discussed the history, goals, and unique strategies that make VetCatch so appealing and effective.
We also discussed the difference between a VFW Post (Veterans of Foreign Wars) and The American Legion, and how other Veteran Organizations are contributing to their success.
And, of course, there is some decidedly Veteran humor and some fishing too.
