The Politics of Belonging to a Gym
I had a thought watching the Republican Debate on CNN earlier this week. Now, before you think this is a political piece, it isn’t. I will tell you only that my political views fall somewhere between bleeding heart liberal and ultra conservative. In fact, truly, the only reason I watched was because I always get stuck watching Wolf Blitzer, spending hours pondering whether A) Wolf is short for something and B) if it’s a stage name and he was born Jeff Blitzelvits.

And it really got me thinking. It helps you sell. It helps you retain. It keeps callers interested! The chance to engage members is right under your nose (the phone?)! If you aren’t doing it, why not?
