He got a close look at how important the milk presentation is to dairy farmers, the racers and the fans.“You don’t realize what it really means until people come up to you ask to get their picture taken with you as you’re holding the milk leading up to the race,” he said Tuesday as he prepared for a media blitz to promote ADA Indiana and the milk tradition. “We had families do that and we had a little boy following us for a little while. He wanted his picture taken with the milkman and the rookie milkman. That stands out and kind of tells you how important it is. We know it’s important because we deal with milk every day being a dairy farmer, but when people outside the dairy world see it you know how important it really is. Milk is the real thing there at the 500.”Wright’s 4th generation dairy farm started in the current location just a few months before Louis Meyer first requested a glass of buttermilk after winning his second Indianapolis 500.“My mom and dad and three brothers and myself make up All Wright Farms and we’ve been milking there since 1933, which is over 30,000 straight days. we’ve not missed a day and we’re pretty proud of that. We’re proud to be dairy farmers here in Indiana and I’m proud to represent the dairy farmers when I give the bottle here in victory lane this year.”The Rookie this year, Janet Dague of Dague Dairy Farm near Kewanna in Fulton County told HAT it’s a smart process to have a rookie learning from a veteran.“It is a good thing that I am a rookie this year. Alan is showing me the ropes, and yes, it’s overwhelming but exciting at the same time, and I’m really glad he’s here to give me pointers and tips.”This year’s race marks the 60th consecutive year of the traditional bottle of milk for the winning Indy 500 driver, and it was in 1960 that Dague Dairy Farm started.“My husband Andrew and I have been added to the farm for 20 years. We bought out his grandparents and now we are in partnership with his parents. We’re the third generation and we are working on bringing in the fourth generation!”Both Dague and Wright sit on the board of American Dairy Association Indiana, Inc. And Dague is not the first woman milk person at the 500. Anita Schmitt of Evansville did the duties in 2007 and 2008, and Sam Schwoeppe from Huntingburg represented diary farmers in 2008 and 2009.

Colorado Musicians Announce Stand Up For Standing Rock Benefit Concert

first_imgWhile the water protectors at the Oceti Sakowain Camp received a big win earlier this week with the US Army Corps of Engineers announcing it would look for an alternative route for the Dakota Access Pipeline, protesters still have plans to remain in the encampment to ensure that construction does not occur. Thus, water protectors will continue to need supplies as they prepare to remain throughout the winter in Standing Rock, South Dakota. To show support, COjam: The Colorado Jam Scene has organized musicians in Denver, CO, for a benefit concert sponsored by the Sierra Club at the Oriental Theater tomorrow night on December 8, 2016.The stacked full line-up includes performances by Atomga, the ten-piece Afrobeat ensemble, and Genetics, the five-piece progressive rock band. In addition, special musical guests include Gabe Mervine of the Motet, Emily Clark, Tori Pater of Polytoxic and the Dyrty Byrds, Devon Parker of Analog Son, Blake Mobley of Tiger Party, Dan Schwindt of Juno What?! and the Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Trevor Jones of Frogs Gone Fishin, Will Trask of The RunniKine, Megan Letts or Mama Magnolia, Mike Tallman and Austin Zaletel of Eufórquestra, Eric Frank of Art Smart Anatomy, Sam Bee, Kory Montgomery, Micah Munro, and members of Eminence Ensemble. Most excitingly, the night also features a performance by the traditional Lakota drum group Oyukpe, complete with Jingle Dress Dancers. Theo Wilson, the award-winning poet and social activist, will also speak during the event, during which he will detail the need for such supplies as well as why thousands have flocked to the cause to protest the pipeline’s construction.All ticket sale contributions will go directly to water protectors, with the majority of the funds allocated for food, porta-johns, trash collection, hand-washing stations, community shelters, fuel and firewood, emergency management teams, and legal and medical fees and supplies.

How to Make Your Client Say “That’s a Great Question”

first_img Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager. Download my free eBook! You need to make sales. You need help now. We’ve got you covered. This eBook will help you Seize Your Sales Destiny, with or without a manager. Download Now There isn’t much better than asking your dream client a question to which they answer, “That’s a great question.” You may have had clients say those very words to you, but you may not know what made it a good question—or how you might achieve that outcome in the future. When you understand the meaning of “that’s a great question,” you can repeat it.Statements and QuestionsIn sales, we spend much time working on our talk tracks. It’s important work, mainly because you need to make your points clearly and crisply. While it makes sense to work on dialogue, improving it and delivering it effectively with confidence (it is just as important to know what to say and how to say it), you aren’t likely to spend nearly as much time on what you might call “power questions.”Here is a statement: “We’ve been in business for 65 years, we have over 100 locations in the United States, and we work with some of the best, most recognized companies anywhere.” That statement doesn’t do much for you. There are many salespeople who believe that is the right place to start a conversation (In Eat Their Lunch: Winning Customers Away From Your Competition, I call this kind of approach “entering from the left,” as it relies on external proof that you belong in the room).Win customers away from your competition. Check out Eat Their LunchHere is a better statement: “One of the ways our model is different from others is that we invest more in the three areas that have the largest impact on the overall results. The price is a little higher, but if you need the results, it is almost always worth it to invest. It lowers your overall costs.” It’s better, even if it’s not perfect. It starts a conversation around results and different choices.Here is a question: “What changes have you made to your customer experience strategy over the last twelve months, and what changes do you believe you might make in the next twelve months?” Let’s unpack the assumptions in this question. First, it presumes you contact has made changes over the twelve months. Second, it suggests that they should have already decided what they need to do in the future.While the second statement may be useful and practical, the question may be better and even more effective.Your Real OutcomeYou want to create value early in the sales process (read this post to see what I mean when I say create value). While there are many ways of creating value, helping your client learn something they don’t know and that may benefit them is useful. You are teaching them how to look at their problem, think about their choices, and why they might make one choice instead of another. Let’s refer to these ideas as “being a consultative salesperson,” even though there are other attributes and skills that belong to that idea.If you were to boil the statement “that’s a great question” down to its essence, what you would find is that you helped your client discover something about themselves. Let’s return to the question about the changes the client made in the not-too-distant past and is preparing to make in the rapidly-approaching future. If the client hasn’t made any real changes, you have exposed a gap. The same is true if they have not yet decided to do something different in the future. You may also have exposed the fact that they aren’t aware of what they might have done and what they should be doing.Your bedside manners matter here. If you have a hint of condescension, you can cause people to feel as if they have to defend themselves, in which case, you have achieved precisely the opposite of what you are going for here. You want an answer that sounds like, “That’s a great question. We’ve made a few little changes, but nothing that has moved the needle.”Questions That Expose a GapYour statements don’t often create a gap, even when they are as direct as something like: “Your results are half of what you should be getting.” Those words can cause resistance to you and your ideas, and they can also create incredulity, even when your prospect should be doing double what they are now.Why would you ask “So, what’s keeping you up at night,” when you have better and more compelling questions you can ask? There is no reason to ask, “What do you wish your existing supplier did differently,” a question that lacks any sense of subtlety. If you are going to be that direct, why not start with, “What’s it going to take to get your business?”Indirect questions that start at Level 4 (strategic outcomes) tend to rise to the level of “that’s a great question.” Questions like, “What do you believe to be the factors that most contribute to the challenges you are facing now, and what prevents you from doing something about them?” There is a value in exposing and discussing the factors that prevent them from the results they need. Even though your contacts have an awareness of these factors, the question provides a context in which to hang those factors. It also begins a conversation about what needs to change and why.A Few Words About Values-based QuestionsSome questions carry more weight than others. Questions about values tend to be dense. These kinds of questions get to identity, culture, the soft stuff that matters most to producing results. A question like, “It sounds like you are concerned about your team. What impact is it having on them, and what do they need from us should you decide to work with us in the future?”Like anything you say or ask, your delivery matters. If you are not other-oriented and sincere, these types of questions are dangerous in your hands.If you want to be more compelling, start by asking questions that help your clients discover something they would not have discovered without your help.last_img read more

Villagers attack police party Madhya Pradesh, two cops injured

first_imgA man was shot and two policemen injured on Friday when around 200 villagers pelted stones on a police party that was out to arrest 40 persons in Kalapipal village of Guna district, the police said. At 7 a.m., as 100 police personnel arrived in the village to arrest the persons, residents of the neighbouring Khanpuriya village in Jhalawar district of Rajasthan attacked them. “Some of them working in fields thought Kalapipal villagers had called the police to beat them up. They collected others, pelted stones on us and fired three-four gunshots in the air to intimidate us. We fired gunshots in the air in return and retreated. One of the villagers was shot in the back,” said Rahul Kumar Lodha, Guna Superintendent of Police. The police have registered cases against the attackers, but no arrests have been made so far. A day ago, the two villages, dominated by the Kanwar community, held a panchayat meeting over the elopement of a girl from Khanpuriya with a youth from the other village. The panchayat had ended in a brawl, with Kalapipal residents filing a case of assault at the local police station. “It was a clear case of confusion. They thought the police were coming to arrest them and we couldn’t figure out why they pelted stones on us,” said Mr. Lodha.last_img read more
