Diligence: 1st Stop Urgent Care – Interfanatic Customer Spotlight

The 1st Stop Urgent Care Clinics, for our Customer Spotlight on Diligence, an Interfanatic Quality

Diligence overcomes Difficulties,
Sloth makes them.

Poor Richard, aka Benjamin Franklin

Poor Richard, over two hundred years ago, adapted an English quote from the 1500s to create this succinct gem.

Difficulties happen. With diligence, these difficulties are eventually removed. With the opposite of diligence, they just keep a-coming.

That’s why when you employ somebody to do a job for you, you need that person (or group) to not quit, no matter how much the troubles mount. It can be difficult to stick with fixing a problem when more and more keep piling on. We’ve all been there. It’s life.

In life, often, the best defense is a great offense. So it is with difficulties; thus quoth Franklin.

We take on those difficulties, those challenges of work, and we vanquish them.

Diligence: An Interfanatic Quality

We see diligence as a way of life. The thought of an unfinished project, or one not completed the best way it could be – that’s the ultimate frustration. We would much rather complete the project, and complete it brilliantly. We enjoy it when customers entrust us and empower us to do our job properly.

Our customers are diligent, and we match or exceed their work ethic whenever we can.

1st Stop Urgent Care – Diligence, Every Day

When Dr. Raphael Argueta came to us, he was in a bind. His old web company (who was very good, from the looks of it), unfortunately was unable to survive. Business is hard for everyone, of course. But business comprised of web geeks seem particularly prone to failure.

That’s okay. We’re here for that.

We got his websites back up to speed and we’re doing our diligence to keep them running well. We’re so glad Dr. Argueta found us!

Dr. Raphael Argueta is just the kind of customer we love. Dr. Argueta good things for the world, and we get to be involved! He runs two urgent care clinics in Southern California, and every day he and his staff help people live longer, healthier, happier lives.

“Dr. Argueta good things for the world, and we get to be involved!”

And because we get to work with Dr. Argueta, we get to help people in our own little way. We’d love to work with more Dr. Arguetas.

Dr. Argueta’s clinics are great. Check them out! The sites need a bit of work, but we’re working with Dr. Argueta toward that goal. For now, they’re running nicely: 1st Stop Urgent Care – Camarillo, 1st Stop Urgent Care – Torrance.

This duomo required great diligence to create. The artwork is spectacular. And though the Catholic Church is always controversial, I sincerely believe that it, as most churches, on the whole does more good than harm with its own brand of diligence.


Black Lives Matter.

We must be diligent, as our black brothers and sisters have been. They’ve been diligent in the face of systemic racism for far too long. We must be diligent in our assistance. Let us not let this flame die – not that they would let time extinguish it. Clearly they will not. But we must not let it suffocate in indifference within us.

This is America.

We can do better. We can overcome obstacles with our collective diligence.

So let’s just do it.

Justice: Ace Process Service – Interfanatic Customer Spotlight

Ace Process Service, Customer Spotlight on Justice, an Interfanatic Quality

Never forget that justice is what love looks like in public.”

Cornell West

Public love. That’s a beautiful sentiment for justice.

But, as West knows better than I may ever know (if I’m lucky), justice is only truly love when it is true and pure. When justice is tainted, justice isn’t love; it’s hate.

But I digress. Justice is fairness to all and it is the quality we celebrate, this week’s virtue at Interfanatic.

Justice: An Interfanatic Quality

A critical component of society – and of business; justice. Businesses must treat their customers with justice or they will be spurned. This has never been so apparent as in the Age of Social Media.

It began with Yelp. Businesses had to suddenly become accustomed to passive-aggressive behavior from customers, and only after there was nothing the business could do about it.

It’s been an uncomfortable transition for some. “The customer is always right”, well, yes – but what if the customer is unhappy and doesn’t bother to speak up until after they have left the building? How is that fair to a business? How is it fair to criticize anybody in public without first giving them the personal opportunity to fix the situation. There is no honor in slinking around, bad-mouthing others when you don’t have the guts to tell them to their face, first.

But Social Media has been the great equalizer. Some have adapted, some have not. In the end, it makes everything work a little better – so long as it’s true justice.

Manipulated reviews: that’s how society’s customers and their interaction with the businesses that serve them can become unjust.

(Which is why we work very hard to keep an open dialogue with our customers.)

Ace Process Service: Administering Justice

Which brings us to Ace Process Service. Their job is to administer justice – to sometimes unsuspecting individuals, unaware they had treated others unjustly.

Jeff Levine of Ace Process Service works, well, all over California, but mostly in Southern California. Ace Process Service is based near El Segundo’s LAX, which means Levine has gotten to work with some interesting people.

You wouldn’t know it if you talked to Levine but briefly. But once you get to know him, you know he has stories. Stories of famous, fortunate people. Stories, of course, he cannot share, but still – it’s clear his experience is immense.

Which means he’s the perfect person to handle this business. His deft hand, honed through years of dancing through sticky situations, means he’s great and handling himself. And your business.

Levine’s deft hand, honed through years of dancing through sticky situations, is great at handling … your business

So next time you need to service papers, know you should work with Ace Process Service.

Interfanatic Basic SEO Situation Report: A Website Performance Check

A few months ago, we worked with Levine to do an SEO Check up. We’re now calling this service the SEO Situation Report. A lot of work goes into understanding your site’s performance in search. It’s an extremely valuable asset we provide to small businesses with websites.

If you’ve ever wondered why your website isn’t getting much traffic or why your customers aren’t finding your business easily online, we give you the answers.

From there, we can craft a strategy to cost efficiently improve your sites ranking for the keywords and keyphrases you care about. There are plenty of ways to help a website, and we work through all of them to give you results.

One of the pieces in our arsenal to improve search results is the Interfanatic Power SEO Business Site Preparation. We go through your entire site and bring it up to speed on SEO, focusing on keywords and keyphrases that matter to your business. The SitRep and Site Prep are a pretty incredible combination for either older sites, or sites not done right.

But the focus here is Ace Process Service. We really have enjoyed working with Levine. He and Ace Process Service provide a valuable service to the people of Southern California, and if we ever need that kind of service, it’s great to know where to find him and his team.

I remember being struck by this Olympic moment a few years ago. There is no justice like the stopwatch. And they had done it! Ultimate justice in payment for years of training. It was an inspiring moment. So inspired, I took a picture of the TV! (So yes, not one of my greatest photographic accomplishments.) And, when I selected this picture, it had just come out that the Olympics were to be postponed… Not exactly justice, but a reminder that Mother Nature is in charge, and we’d best do our part to keep her happy. Mother Nature administers her own justice.

Sheri Messerlian's Commercial Real Estate at SheriMesserlian.com: Interfanatic Customer Spotlight on Honesty, Interfanatic Quality

“…the first thing is to be honest with yourself.

Nelson Mandela

With Mandela and Sheri Messerlian, Honesty flows from within. When you’re honest with yourself, Mandela holds, you can be more easily honest with the people who trust you.

Working in sales (and in marketing) it is easy to be tempted to dishonesty; a white lie, a little fib, a slight exaggeration. If it helps get the sale, does it really matter?

Yes.

Yes, it does. So we don’t do that. And neither does Sheri Messerlian. Which is one reason why it’s so great to work with her.

Honesty: An Interfanatic Quality

In the competitive field of real estate, it’s difficult to stand out. There are thousands of agents vying for listings and vying for their customers to make sales. It would be so easy to take a few shortcuts to make sure you get the edge.
