Signtronix - Freedom, Independence and Signs of Progress
For many, many years, we have been fortunate to be able to celebrate Freedom. First and foremost, we celebrate the freedom we enjoy as a country. Thousands of men and women fought, and continue to fight, to preserve our political and religious independence and we endlessly thank them for their service and sacrifice on our behalf. We are honored to have many of our country's military personnel working for Signtronix. Their presence within the company is not only a tribute to their efforts, but also a testimony to our company's values.
Like many other former military members working at Signtronix, Signtronix RM Paul S understands freedom, independence and progress. Besides serving in the military, he has been with Signtronix over 30 years and watched the company thrive and evolve. He has experienced all the freedoms Signtronix offers.
As Albert Camus once said, "Freedom is nothing else but a chance to be better." Paul, his Carolina Panthers and every Veteran within the Signtronix family can tell you how true that statement is in times of economic trials as well as times of financial prosperity.
Secondly, we celebrate the freedom we possess through our careers. Albert Einstein said, "Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom." Being part of Signtronix provides the unique opportunity to be independent in many aspects of our lives. As a Manager or Dealer, you're free to make as much money as you want. You're free to work as much as you want. You're free to travel when and where you want. You're free to choose what you sell and to who you sell. With hard work and dedication, your career possibilities and earning opportunities are endless! As a company, Signtronix is constantly seeking progress with both products and people. We want our products to be cutting edge and timely relevant to our industry. Just the same, we strive for our people to be professional and up-to-date with their product and sales knowledge. The most successful people within Signtronix seek out learning on a daily basis from books, tapes and, best of all, other successful people! Independence + freedom + progress = a truly rare occasion where you can take YOUR life and YOUR career and create the success you desire. This unique formula will allow you to live the life you want, but it's not easy. Like anything worthwhile, it's not a walk in the park. There is sacrifice and many hours of real work that stand in your way of the success you've been striving to achieve.
Keep up the great work and focus on the Independence and freedoms we have in our lives. "Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation and freedom in all just pursuits."

Triple Crown DM Seth McNeal received a call from one of his previous customer who has an LED 40-3 line at her Ceramic Painting Class and wanted to share this story with Seth. She had gone to a local school to do a presentation to 82 3rd grade children. When she introduced herself, one of the 3rd grade boys raised his hand and asked, “Are you the business with the dragon on your sign?” She thought he was talking about her wooden sign and said, “No, there is a paint brush on it.” He then replied, “I mean your electronic sign with the dragon on it.” Later that week the boy brought his mom by her store just to show her the dragon animation on the sign and they became customers. Seth excitedly said, “It was a great call to receive from a customer!”
Charles Duhigg, author of the book The Power of Habit explains the impact of these small achievements: “Research has shown that small wins have enormous power, and influence disproportionate to the accomplishments of the victories themselves.” In other words, it makes no difference how minute our day’s achievement is because – Continue Reading »
Many people out there are up against major challenges or personal issues, but still are successful. How? Among the key things that get them through (while others tend to give up) is the ability to appreciate small changes and celebrate where they are throughout the arc of their progress. Sure, they have difficult days like everyone else, but they recognized a temporary situation or feeling and let it pass. Continue Reading »
Inherent to this idea of small wins lead to bigger successes is what Teresa Amabile, author and Professor at the Harvard Business School, calls the “progress principle.” She found the efforts of tracking small achievements each day (as well as reflecting on challenges) enhanced motivation as well as creativity.
