Things you do that may undermine your success!
Presented by Diane Pisani
Founder, Your Home Watch Professionals Training and Resources
We have all heard that it takes just a quick glance, maybe three seconds, for someone to evaluate you when you meet for the first time. Have you ever thought about other things you do for which you may be judged?
Long time entrepreneur and business owner, Diane Pisani, explores the unintentional messages you send that can result in unintended consequences. Keep in mind that a consequence is a result or effect of an action or condition. So, that which is unintended can be bad. Or, it can be good. Get ready to open your mind and have a paradigm shift; or two!
Diane Pisani has been an entrepreneur, and business owner, since 1986 when she launched one of the nation’s first cruise-only travel agencies in Crown Point, Indiana.
In 2003 she sold the travel agency and moved to Southwest Florida. During this transitional time, she worked at a wellness company, the Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort, as well as a brief time at a home watch company, followed by managing the property services division of a rental business before entering the world of home watch.
Diane launched her first home watch company, with a business partner, in 2006. They grew quickly and the business continues to thrive. Home Watch is not a regulated entity and has no formal training or requirements. She clearly saw the need to do her part to raise the industry standards and establish best practices.
Your Home Watch Professionals Training and Resources was founded in 2009. Diane knows that “You don’t know, what you don’t know, until you know what you don’t know.” She trains dynamic professionals and helps them launch, and grow, their own home watch company.
Diane truly cares about the Seasonal Residents who often do not know about home watch or how to hire a competent person. There are a lot stories of unqualified home watch providers who may cause expensive, and avoidable, damage. Some take payment and never show up on visits or take advantage of the home owner in a variety of ways.
Diane’s passion is unmistakable and she works tirelessly to raise awareness of what home watch services should really be. She is an industry leader, educator, and advocate as well as the author of the eBook: The Ultimate Home Watch Interview Guide.
