How do you treat your guests?

Do you invite guests in?  Ask what they need? Find out how you can help them?

Welcome your Guests

In a world where social networking is rockin’ our lives, and we are trying to behave online like we would face to face... Welcome them in, don’t ignore them, don’t make them stand at the door and wait, don’t peep through the crack and not engage them.

They knocked, they came.

Welcome them in or they go someplace they will be welcomed.

Just saying…..
