Business Consulting Changes The Town

Breaking news was not a term thrown around at the Sanborn Gazette very frequently. For once they had something that warranted the terminology, writer Sharon Smith thought as she left the new Business Consulting Firm’s office. She rushed back to her home base, the Gazette’s two cubicle office, to write her piece on the business.

New Business, PerSynergy Coaching, Takes Sanborn by Storm

A new business is making a splash in our small town of Sanborn. Sanborn, with a population of just 1,006 is home to just over a dozen small local businesses. In the past, our economic growth has been a challenge. Small businesses were pushed to the wayside, while citizens opted for the 15-minute drive to the big city to do their shopping at the big chain retailers.

Well, not anymore! This top-notch coaching firm has infiltrated our community, working to turn the economy around. Seven of our local businesses have already chosen to use their services with shocking results! These businesses include the famous Patty’s Diner, Thomas’s Shoes and More, and Frank’s Food and Stuff.

I was able to score interviews with some of these establishment’s owners along with the leader of PerSynergy Coaching. The rest of the business owners were, unfortunately, not available for comment at this time.

When asked about the progress they were making, Mrs. Patty herself said, “It is amazing! Sales are through the roof. People are willing to stay here and grab a bite to eat instead of driving into town to go to the Cheese Cake Factory. Things could not be going better, I would highly recommend these business consulting pros to anyone.”

On a typically day Patty’s Diner might have had forty customers cumulatively throughout the day. Now, Mrs. Patty states an average of sixty customers throughout the day. “The growth is staggering,” she says!

Thomas, the owner of Thomas’s Shoes and More, says, “I love, love, love, working with PerSynergy. They help me get the job done and business has never been better. They have quickly become a pillar of this community, and a beacon of hope for all small business owners. To him I tip my hat.”

Thomas’s Shoes report earnings that are 25% higher since they hired the consulting firm. They rave, “business is so much better!” They also have been able to take on more staff members, stimulating the economy.

When asked what his vision is behind his consulting firm the owner states, “Our vision is simply to improve this great community. I have always loved this community. My grandparents were born and raised here before moving away, but I remember coming to visit as a kid. The more jobs we can create in Sanborn, the more successful I feel we have been. We have a vision of a self-sustaining Sanborn. A community where you do not have to drive into town every time you want to grocery shop or get a haircut. We have to build on what we have here in order to create something beautiful.”

So, there you have it, this is the way of the future for Sanborn. There will be more reports to come on how this new business is vastly impacting our small community, so stay tuned!

The Lawyer Who Cared

Joan Midler had been on her way to work that Wednesday when she caught sight of something that seemed very interesting.

‘What is that?’ Her blue eyes widened and her brows knotted together. The young immigration lawyer from Orange County had a thing for helping foreigners. She loved interacting with people from other countries, who had different cultures and beliefs, working with them had widened her horizon.

She quickly parked her car to one side of the road and got out of it.

Of recent, there had been an influx of about twenty thousand refugees from Syria and they were having a hard time fitting into the small Californian city.

A mischievous smile pricked her lips as she recalled the complaints she had gotten from some of the refugees who could speak English. Language was a big problem here, and they had no choice but to begin ESL classes.

“Hello!” She called out to the three children and a middle-aged woman on the other side of the road. They seemed to be in some kind of fix, and they really looked confused.

Joan straightened her skirt and marched confidently in her black pumps towards them. They were arguing with a bus conductor who had begun yelling. And from his filthy lips, a dozen curse words fled into the air.

Joan noticed that the woman and the children who were obviously hers because of the strong resemblance seemed confused. They looked at the angry guy in bewilderment.

They were thinking, “Why is this guy yelling on such a sunny day?”

When she arrived at the scene, Joan couldn’t help but admire their colorful dresses which reminded her of some Indian movies she had seen when she was a kid. The girls covered their head with a little scarf, while the woman veiled herself with a Hijab.

“Hello” Joan flashed a smile at them.

The woman quickly shifted and pulled her children away from the stranger. Her swift action didn’t go unnoticed. It only made Joan laugh.

“Look, I am here to help you.” Joan pressed a hand on her chest, a gesture most people understood as love or peace. Obviously, they were new to the area and they needed some help.

Joan heard the kids whispering something in a language similar to Arabic, which she understood partially. Due to the nature of her job, Joan had learned to adapt to languages quickly. She knew how to speak French, German, Russian, Spanish and Turkish fluently. Other languages came in bits.

“What do you want here lady? Are you coming on the bus or what?” The angry conductor fired at her.

“Um, not really,” Joan paused and ran her eyes over the woman and her kids.

“Don’t look at them. They got on the bus and won’t pay, even after we dropped everyone at the last bus stop.” The man was still annoyed.

At that point, Joan understood what was going on.

“Whoa, did you care to find out where they were going or you were just yelling?” Joan wondered.

“I work on a bus, not some interview company.”

Joan ignored him and moved towards the woman and her kids who were about running when she raised her hands in the air and screamed, “Salam!” At once, they all stopped and stared at her in wonder.

“Salam?” A smile split the chubby face of the mother, as “Salam,” was the call for peace. It was a welcome. It was an invitation.

Joan hoped the woman wouldn’t gush out more Arabic, because she would be totally lost.

“Um, where were you going?” Joan gestured with her hands hoping they would understand, and they did.

The youngest kid screamed, “Arsadia…”

“Just hear that, ain’t no place like Arsadia!” The conductor yelled.

Joan laughed as she realized they meant, “Arcadia,” but their accent had caused a little confusion.

“I have a car; I can take you wherever you want. You can trust me, Salam.” She pressed her hands together and bowed her head like she was in prayer.

The woman moved closer to Joan. Apart from the fact that the woman spoke a word she understood, there was something about her sapphire eyes. They were calm, considerate and friendly. She could trust this woman.

“If you are thinking of leaving without paying…”

Joan flipped her purse open and handed him a few dollars.

She grabbed one of the kids and raised him into her arms.

“Next time, learn to be nicer to strangers. You don’t know when you’ll find yourself in need of help.” She waved a finger across the man’s face.

Five minutes after, her new friends were already in her car heading to her office where she would bring in a translator and help get them the assistance they needed.

They drove off to:
