TechShop Is Getting ‘Switched On’ and Launches Tool Connect New Equipment & Tools E-Newsletter

Motivational speaker Chip Eichelberger's enthusiastic presentation had the whole company motivated to look at the direction our lives are going, and figure out how to make ourselves more valuable -- to our families, our careers, our customers and ourselves.

At our company’s annual sales meeting in August, Babcox Media hosted motivational speaker Chip Eichelberger at our corporate headquarters in Akron, OH. Chip’s motto is “Get Switched On.” And he definitely had our team switched on! His enthusiastic presentation had the whole company motivated to look at the direction our lives are going, and figure out how to make ourselves more valuable — to our families, our careers, our customers and ourselves.
“There’s a gap from how you do it now to how it should be done,” Chip said.
Many of his suggestions also are applicable to being a superior shop owner or technician.
Create your own compelling vision to have a GREAT YEAR.
Chip recommends writing down your vision, laminating it and putting it up in your shower. Re-evaluate everything in your current patterns of time and associations. Where do you need to confront the brutal facts and make some extreme changes?
Invest an hour a day on YOU.
You are worth it, he says. How many non-fiction books will you read this year? What will happen when you do? “Remember the Law of Association: you will become like the information and people you spend the most time with.” Among the many suggested books on his vast reading list are Unlimited Power and Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony ­Robbins, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There by Marshall Goldsmith, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck and The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John C. Maxwell.
Get Switched On!
“Be the dispenser of enthusiasm at the beginning of each day with your team and family and again at the end of the day,” Chip advises.
Be a catalyst, and beware the Law of Familiarity. “Treat established clients/employees/spouses like new ones!”
Chip’s website is www.get switchedon.com, and you can ­follow him on Twitter at @chipe.

So now the TechShop team is switched on and enthusiastic about our recently launched equipment and tool e-newsletter — Tool Connect. Each Wednesday, Tool Connect brings you only the tool and equipment info you want and need.
Each week, we’ll bring you the latest new product information, technical articles, tool demo videos, equipment & tool industry news, tool tips and more.
The feedback we’ve received so far has been incredibly encouraging, with readers hungry for more tools and equipment. Have you received it? What do you think? If you haven’t, please sign up.
