Happy Anniversary APR !

It is amazing to think that we started this company 10 years ago.  On one hand, it seems like yesterday and on the other, it seems like a lot longer than that!  I distinctly remember the day we first walked into an empty office space having just left our jobs.  The day was September 13th, 2004…..

I remember because it was my wife’s birthday that day and I got to tell her that her husband is now unemployed and starting a brand new business from scratch.  Happy birthday, honey… we have no income !!    She knew, as did I, that there was no doubt that we would do great things with this company.  It was […]

What can you learn at a conference? A lot!

I took time out to attend the Kentucky Bankers Association annual convention at the French Lick Resort in French Lick, IN.  What a great group of people!  There has been some great material covered and it is good to hear the concerns that are going on within the industry.  Here are some brief overviews of what I heard at the event:

The Economy:  Getting better…… nice!  Still not there yet, but the trends are definitely starting to look up and people are starting to buy again.  Houses, cars, etc.

Mergers and acquisitions:  We got a nice overview of the happenings going on and the mergers and acquisitions will continue….. some good, some not so much.  Let’s hope […]

Celebrating the ACA’s 75th Anniversary in Chicago

I was honored to help represent American Profit Recovery at last week’s ACA Convention & Expo. The ACA is an international association comprised of leaders of Credit and Collection professionals. This year was the association’s 75th anniversary celebration and it was held in Chicago. It was terrific to be able to take in the wonderful sights and sounds of Chicago shoulder to shoulder with industry leaders.

The days were spent attending several top notch educational seminars from world class speakers. The diverse group of speakers ranged from Harley Davidson CEO speaking about building his company’s reputation to top political consultant Karl Rove commenting on how the collection industry contributes positively to the overall economy of the […]

Lawn and Landscaping Season is Coming

I had a great opportunity recently to be a guest on an internet radio show that focuses on the green industry; one of our specialties. Lawncare and landscaping professionals work very hard to build and maintain their businesses. If you’re one of them I’m not telling you anything new.

We work with countless professionals in this industry and one part of their business that really puts a damper on growth is their accounts receivables.

On landscape Live talk Radio, I had a great chance to go over what a landscaping or lawncare professional can do to overcome some of these challenges in getting paid on time. I offer some […]

Join APR for the Brighton Polar Plunge for Special Olympic

Despite this weekend’s 20-year-old record snow fall and record lows…Burr, American Profit Recovery employees and their families will be taking the plunge for the Special Olympics for the second year in a row! I am glad that we are making this an annual event, as I have been an active supporter of the Special Olympics since I was on the high school swim team.  One of my teammates, who had more passion for the sport than anyone else I have ever met, had a disability and was an active Special Olympic athlete.

Looking back all those years ago I still remember 5:45 AM practices, where I was struggling to find the energy to keep […]
