Be Like Norm Dominguez

I was lucky enough about a dozen years ago to have a business mentor, his name is Norm Dominguez. Norm shared a lot with me and I am grateful for the time he spent with me. If you meet Norm you will remember one adjective about him, he uses it about himself when he’s asked the question “Hi Norm , How are you?”

He would always respond “Remarkable!”

No you may think, that makes Norm a little full of himself. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Norm is remarkable because of the time he is willing to share with you, expecting nothing in return. I often wish that I was more like him.

Are you remarkable? Would you clients and colleagues write about you in a positive manner, or are you instantly forgettable.
Try more. Work harder. Become remarkable.

Thanks Norm.

I like to think that I am instantly rememberable! Using a prop or a characteristic (mine's the colour purple) will provide an 'aid memoire' to anybody who meets you, as well as the scintillating anecdotes and value for money snippets of information you let fall from your lips! If you give your listeners something for nothing that will make a difference to their lives, then they will surely remember you!
