Part I - How to Identify and Qualify Your Best Customers
4:15 - 5:15 pm Cost $20
The Harvard Business School refers to a phenomenon in small business called "resource poverty." This refers to a simple fact that small business owners wear dozens of hats, and have limited time and resources. Working in this setting, time is one of the most valuable and limited resources that business owners have. Due to limited time, successful business owners focus their time and energy on "high-impact activities." Attracting and qualifying the right clientele is a "high impact activity". The goal of this program is to give attendees the information they need so that they never again go on a sales call with an unqualified prospect. This program will help attendees:
Understand how to identify their target market
Understand how to identify the demographics of your best clients
Clearly understand what questions to ask a potential customer over the phone so that you don't waste valuable time on an onsite sales call with an unqualified prospect
Part II - Creating Clients for Life – A New Business Model
6:30 - 7:30 pm Cost $20
Homeowners always have work that needs to be done on their home. Even in a down economy. The Home Asset Management Plan shows professionals how to build and optimize relationships with clients by offering an annual home evaluation. This annual evaluation identifies potential problem areas providing homeowners with findings, recommendations, and estimates to assist them in managing their largest asset. Work is identified and “booked” as muchas 12 to 24 months in advance. The benefits of this business model are numerous:
Is recession proof – even in a bad economy, homeowners still need help
Provides ongoing cash flow - generating work orders even in a down economy
Is proactive, not reactive – we don’t wait for customers to call – we call them and generate work orders!
Allow industry professionals to build life-long relationships with customers becoming their “contractor/advisor for life”

Experience New Kent Winery at Dombroski Vineyards
Nestled in the historic Virginia countryside between Richmond and Williamsburg, New Kent Winery is a beautiful escape from the stress of daily life and is conveniently located just off Route 64. An environmentally sensitive winery in a perfectly beautiful setting, it was modeled to reflect an earlier time.
Reclaimed, Old World Materials
The winery was built by craftsmen of historic materials reclaimed from buildings and structures well over a century old. Beautiful heart-pine trusses came from a 1901 Southern Railroad Depot located in Richmond’s Shockoe Bottom. Heart pine structural timbers and floor timbers were recovered from a Connecticut warehouse circa 1852. The stunning exterior facade boasts handmade, pre-Civil War bricks. Siding and roof shingles were milled from cypress logs that had been submerged in Florida rivers for more than 150 years.
An impressive entrance porch leads to an expansive Tasting Room that features a ceiling of exposed heart pine wood beams, a floor of Lyptus (Eucalyptus) wood and an elegant tasting counter that can accommodate 22. Large windows provide sweeping views of the vineyards. Tastings of New Kent wines and small plate selections are available and can be enjoyed on the spacious outdoor patios and lounging porches, all surrounded by beautiful landscaping.
