The Search is On

Posted: November 14, 2014 in Uncategorized

The search is on. I know that many of you out there have looked at my  LinkedIn profile

(http://www.linkedin.com/in/skiptraceconsultants/) not just once, but many times. I know that many of you have reviewed my resume located at http://sbtresume.weebly.com.  It is now possible for you to download a hard copy.

What I am seeking is a senior level management position preferably in the business development arena. I have built several collection organizations from the ground up. As you are aware I built this group for many years along with 10 other sub groups. If you are looking to build your company or your collection law firm and are prepared to invest the funds to do it, then I can and will help.  Please do not offer to pay straight commission. That means there is not investment on your part.

The right person is right here.  All you need to do is pick up the phone and call me at 954-290-6976. Send an email to staylor@skiptraceconsultants.com. 

As previously mentioned I am willing to relocate for the right opportunity.  It must be a salaried position with bonus opportunity.

Salary vs Commission

Posted: November 3, 2014 in Uncategorized

Over the last several months while seeking a new position I have gone on many interviews, both in person and on the phone.

Some of the in person interviews were more or less scams that offered minimum wage plus a commission to upgrade the unsuspecting consumer. I know I am over qualified for that.

I know the owner of a collection agency in Hollywood, FL and he had obtained my resume and sent it over to his HR person. She called me and said that based on my resume they would like to have me come for an interview. They had an incredible opportunity for me. I asked what it was only because it is 40 miles one way from where I live.
She said that I would get paid a great starting salary and commission. Again I asked about the position. She finally told me that it was for a debt collector and it would pay $320.00 per week plus commission.
It was obvious that she had not read my resume. I have not mad a debt collection call since 1986, but have been in business development. They are also collecting on Payday Loan accounts, that were purchased and are nine years old. Basically noncollectable. It would have been a 90 mile round trip for $8.00 per hour. I did not need to be insulted.

No less than 5 collection commercial collection agencies and a consumer law firm have offered me the opportunity to come and work for them for FREE. Basically I can put in all the effort and have to wait for an account to pay before I get paid a percentage.

I am a workaholic. I love to work, and go meet the people. Perhaps I am a bit old school that still believes that the face to face meeting will close the deal, but that has always worked for me, but again I do not wish to work for free. Am I being too unreasonable not wanting to work for FREE. I can refer people to collection agencies all day and maybe I will receive some benefit.

I am able to travel, relocate if necessary and if you really want someone that has excellent knowledge, that will be loyal to you and not be looking elsewhere then here I am. My resume is at http://sbtresume.weebly.com
My LinkedIn profile can be viewed at http://www.linkedin.com/in/skiptraceconsultants/ and if you want to see more then visit http://www.skiptraceconsultants.com.

Your job right now is to review my qualifications and then call me, send me an email with your proposal, but please remember No One wants to work for FREE.

I get calls on a daily basis from people that want to know how to improve their business and how can I help them market their businesses. I have been working with a company and have also decided that video marketing is the way to go. .

I just produced this really great marketing video for my business. Here is the link for you to check out http://youtu.be/kJEfdzMo6Mw. I was able to strike up a great deal with the company producing them. It’s usually a cost of $995 for the marketing video. I was able to negotiate a group rate for all members of $595 each. If you would like to take advantage of this and would like one, the link is http://www.videodirect.tv/bookus. Just select the group you are in.

I would like to share this article from Collections and Credit Risk written by Darren Waggoner http://www.collectionscreditrisk.com/news/ccr_risk_analytics/consumer-complaints-fdcpa-lawsuits-increase-in-june-3018666-1.html?utm_campaign=newsline-jul%2029%202014&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&ET=ccrisk%3Ae2872086%3A856652a%3A&st=email This spells out that the debt-buyers are not effectively auditing their files that have been placed with agencies. This also means that agency owners are not being proactive and having their files audited. While I know that many of the agency owners are being compliant, many are unable to review collector files on a regular basis, they are unable to monitor all the calls. This is why agency’s are being shuttered, and fined hundreds of thousands of dollars. My question is would you spend $10,000. to save hundreds of thousands of dollars? Would you spend $10,000 to prevent your business from being shut down? We have the solutions: Please take a few minutes and review the to links and then answer this questions.

What does an employer look for?

Posted: October 20, 2014 in Uncategorized

I would like to find out what an employer is looking for. Recently I sent my resume and a cover letter to many of my LinkedIn connections. What is wrong?

I have cleaned up my resume from three (3) pages to one. It looks a lot more presentable.
I am willing to relocate for a company.
I am willing to travel up to 75% of the time.
Many people are not seeking to do those.
With everything there is a sacrifice. I will make it.

Are you seeking experience? I have it. 35 years in the collection industry.
From starting as a collector to management, sales and business development.
My resume is still at http://sbtresume.weebly.com. If you want a hard copy just ask for one.
Do you want to reach out to me. My email is staylor@skiptraceconsultants.com
My phone is 954-290-6976. Please feel free to call me at anytime.
