Dear Bruce and Hattie,

Here's a deal I hope you can't refuse. Bring me a ticket, stub or pass from any of three great events happening in North Texas this week, and I'll give you a FREE appetizer with every entree bought to the table... (with much more detail)    - Hector

To:  Hector of  Hector's on Henderson, Dallas, Texas
Subject: What a splendid offer... thank you

Dear Hector:

What a splendid offer. Very, very good. I wish we were in Dallas. We are in California for awhile, but when we get back to Dallas, we'll use your wonderful restaurant for our evening gatherings to break bread and drink some wine with our business friends. And, we won't have any stubs with us!

Just because we have enjoyed our dining with you in the past, I would like to give you a complimentary guest pass to our website so you can see some of the episodes of the show, especially about restaurants and about Dallas-area businesses.

1.  Click here to review over 70 videos about restaurants

2.  Click on any one of the names of other business owners in the Dallas area:
      •   Dale Crownover - Texas Nameplate
      •   Albert Black - On Target Supplies & Logistics
      •   Anne & Mike McGilvray - AMCI
      •   Gary Salomon - FastSigns

And, yes, there are dozens of others done right there in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

So, if you come to the website, first log in and you won't bump into any "Stop Signs"  [Editor's note:  A guest pass with Username and Password was given to Hector.] along the way.

The importance of a Key Question:  Whenever you watch a video, please notice that there is a key question just under the tabs, Q&A, Transcript, Episode. For example,  the key question in this video with Ebby Halliday - "How do you stand out in the crowd? How do you get better?"

Many businesses use that Key Question as a 15 minute study with key staff people to open discussions to improve their business.  One business was closing its doors.  They decided to use that little methodology and turned their business around, grew 2000% that year, and became one of the leaders in Atlanta among Public Relations firms.

Thank you, Hector,  for your occasional emails.  It is very effective and keeps you on our very short list of places to dine when we are in Dallas.

Best wishes always,

Warmly,

Bruce
