Be NICE to Your CSR (PSU Customer Service Rep)! Here's Why:
Your PSU CSR rep is here to help you for many years in your new business, and cares ONLY about seeing you successful. So: BE NICE to them! If you don't yet get this, here are some real life quotes FROM our CSR's to show you what their day is like, and why they are your new BFF:
"I just spent a week getting new insurance for one of my dealers who lost their insurance due to a claim. I had to coordinate the association, his bond, the underwriter, our agent, his agent and his landlord. This is for a grad who bought a course 8 years ago for $169. SHOW ME another organization that goes that kind of extra mile for their grads!"
"I have a grad who got into credit trouble due to an underwater mortgage, and when he moved his business, the utility company refused to give him power! It took me nearly a month, but with trade references and association support, I got him his power back, WITHOUT a deposit. You should see the letter I got!" (Note: Grad spent $299 10 years ago at Teachcombat.com to set up a fencing dojo).
"This week's best grad story is from one of my Pastoral Counseling grads who was sued by the State of XX. I worked with our lawyers and her attorney, and had our own expert witness not only talk to the DA, but also show him our 'cross' of his expert from the APA, which included numerous questions about finances and debt counseling that our grad could answer, but the DA's expert couldn't! They dropped the case completely, and my grad is back in business after only three weeks." (Backstory: we spent $6,900 on this grad, who bought a $159 course 4 years previous to the problem!).
"The grad who loves me best is a guy who couldn't afford to launch a new website idea he had for Background Investigation. I sent his BP to four of our venture investors, and two of them not only funded his launch, but also his patent application for the code. The site is doing ok, but the royalties are making him rich. He got over $66,000 last month alone. As far as I can tell (he graduated over 15 years ago), all he ever spent with PSU is $109."
"My favorite is an autistic artist I got featured with a prominent NY ad agency, who then promoted her to THEIR clients. XXX is now making more than $30,000 a month selling her work not just to agencies, but also online stock photo houses and her own stock photo site. I worked with the family and the local Champions (Autistic softball club) and 8 other artists are now contributing to her site." (Backgrounder: This grad's parents spent a total of $569 on all the courses she took at PSU).
"My happiest is a Locksmith who lost his bond and was on the verge of going out of business. I got him re-bonded through our own underwriter. The funny thing is (deleted) was his first school, and they trash talked us-- he took a chance on us and his $259 investment literally saved his business. I don't want to be catty, but WE also approve (the other school's) grads for both bonding and sitting or not sitting for the association exam. Without that association, insurance goes from $200 to $3,000 a year! If I were nasty, I could really "answer" (the other school's) nasty posts about me."
"I have tons of letters, mostly from successful FFL applicants, but my favorite is a new Gunsmithing grad whose neighborhood association tried to close his garage shop down, which also would have lost his FFL. The association used a fine print common carrier section in the association regs to try to shut him down. I had our lawyers call UPS, and when our attorney talked to the neighborhood association attorney, and he found out we were about to get UPS service stopped for their whole neighborhood, they stopped their action against our grad."
"My best story this month is a Bodyguard grad who couldn't get enough business due to his age. I got one of our network investors to fund a classroom, and he started teaching and certifying his own grads through our co-cert program. Low and behold, after only 6 months, he started to get "team" requests, and included himself in the team! His business is one of the most successful I've seen now." (Original grad expense at PSU: $249. What Angela did for him: Priceless).
"My biggest win letter is a Bladesmith who lacked self confidence. I couldn't get him to feature his knives on BladeArtists.com or our ETI knife store, because he was too shy and a perfectionist. SO, over a year, I got him to first resell other's knives, then start to teach blade combat, then just put scales on other raw Damascus tangs, and finally his own blades. He now makes his own tools, and is patenting a new slack belt design I got funded though one of our NWI's (network investors). He is the TERMINATOR when it comes to income now, as he has so many irons, each bringing him a little more fire."
"My best is a reloader who invented his own silent round after reading the low load text. He got a government contract, and set up a complete lab and manufacturing plant. Because of the contract, all the licensing was expedited. I needed to fund his cash flows so he could survive the start up period, and our venture source has now been completely paid back. The plant will make many more special military items, including for special ops, and when the contract ends in 2021, I've worked with xxxxx on a plan to transition the plant to commercial production with the same investor." (This grad originally spent $199 with PSU and has not spent another cent since! We do have some really nice emails and letters from him, though!).
