Over the past several months, I have been making weekly marketing trips to drug and alcohol treatment centers, drug testing facilities, truck stops and trucking companies in the Central Arkansas area. So far, I have not been “shown the door” by anyone. There have been a few places where the positive mood and attitude was infectious and almost intoxicating; maybe they were piping in extra oxygen.
What I have found has been that people in Arkansas are really quite friendly, even when I am temporarily disrupting their day to day activities.
I really appreciate each of the folks that have taken the time to teach me more about their business, especially some of the logistics companies. I was in shock and awe at some of the technology being used and impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of most everyone that I have met.
