RELOCATE & Stay Great: How The Salgado Home & Relocation Services Team Helps Others Move Coast to Coast and Still Continue Their Dream

October 14, 2016

salgadohomecollectionwith Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes

Fay Salgado, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Fay Salgado Home had a vision that truly came to life after traveling the country with her husband Richard “Big Daddy” Salgado, speaking with countless athletes, front office people, management, entertainers and business men and women, that the need for an all-inclusive, professional relocation and organizational service became apparent. To fill that need, Fay launched Fay Salgado Home LLC and today I interview Fay through the word RELOCATE to give you a unique perspective on how to stay great when you move from state to state.

stanleycupR is for Reason: Why did you want to start a home and relocation business?

I was a former hockey wife for 9 years and this is what has made this journey easy for me. I moved twice a year during trades, minor leagues to the pros and back.  Having to move to Canada every summer during the off season with two children in tow gives me the inside track to identify with athletes, families and especially their significant other with constant life changes in every scenario.

E is for Experience: What expertise do you bring to the table that makes your vision able?

We have a team of experts that we built relationships with over the past 20 years.  Rather it be real estate brokers, shipping or insurance to risk management we know and trust our team members with our clients.

L is for Learn. After you started this venture what do you know now that you didn’t know before?

Building clientele isn’t just about your expertise. It’s about having a relationship of trust which leads to another client. This takes time to formulate especially working with celebrities and their families.

brainanO is for Opportunity. Where do see yourself through this business in years to come and are there other untap markets in the relocation industry?

I recently started developing “Salgado Home Collection” and my goal is to launch our candle collection for the 2016 Holiday season and help homecollectionsupport Brain Aneurysms awareness by giving a percentage of sales to a charity.  After the launch … honesty my vision has no end. With passion and drive the Salgado Home Collection will lead where God wants it to be.

C is for Caution. What are obstacles that people who have to move face and how does your company provide solutions to their problems?

In life we all have obstacles rather it be a divided family, a loss of a family member,  joining two families in one home, divorce, financial woes, job relocation, life insurance or health insurance and it always something and somewhere down the line that we all have to identify with one or more of these scenarios.

My services provide comfort for their situation that can or could be over whelming at that time of their move.  I guess I kind of look at it as “Every thing will be ok” and there is no better feeling. Example: When of one of my client has insurance needs I refer them to Richard Salgado of www.coastaladvisorsllc.com who has a credible name in name in the industry “Big Daddy” that most know and feel confident with his risk management services. Our network also extends to our clients when they have housing or development needs and we connect them with Elite Real Estate Brokers.

A is Aware. If someone has never moved before and especially not coast to coast what are some other things that they need to be aware of before contacting a company that does what you do?

Anytime you’re doing business with a company you are not familiar with there will always be some sort of risk factor. The first question I would ask is if the company is insured and bonded. If your dealing with an estate, I would ask how much their company is bonded for to make sure it can cover the value of your move and assets. If hiring outside sources to come into your home to organize, make sure they to are insured and bonded. Injuries do happen, things break and you don’t want to find yourself in a situation that could lead you to a lawsuit.

If you’re not buying and renting when you are moving into your next home make sure you always research who you’re renting from. Do background work on the home to make sure the property is not under foreclosure or prior law suits with other tenants. If you’re working with a management company that is locating a rental for you, it’s not usually their responsibility to research public records and investigate past history. The other advice would be to research your community, value of homes and schools.

T is Time. How long does it normally take to help someone move coast to coast and why is this the right time to be in business?

Each client has different needs and services required so to put a time line on a job is almost impossible. We treat our clients like family and a job is never done until they feel the comfort with our service. This is the main reason why I love to book in advance and work with exclusive clientele throughout the sports industry. Each subcontractor signs a nondisclosure contract to assure our clients privacy

E is for Excellence. How important is greatness and what do you want others to say once you have their move out if the way?

I want my clients to say, ummmm nothing and to just see them with a honest pure smile is good enough for me. It’s a great feeling to see a happy home and know I was a part of the process.

What else would you like to mention before we go?

Fay Salgado Home is an insured and bonded company that has clients in the NFL & NHL and for more information people can go to www.faysalgadohome.com

DERRICK Interview with International Journalist George E. Curry

December 3, 2012

Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes gives a DERRICK Interview by asking 7 questions through each letter of his first name to give you an insightful perspective from other experts, entrepreneurs, celebrities and up and coming super stars.

Today’s DERRICK Interview is with George Curry who is an International journalist, keynote speaker, moderator and media coach.  From 2001 until 2007, he served as editor-in-chief of the National Newspaper Publishers Association News Service in Washington, D.C. Curry writes a weekly syndicated column for the NNPA and “Beyond the Spin,” a column for the Philadelphia Inquirer. Before joining the NNPA, Curry was editor-in-chief of Emerge magazine for seven years. Under Curry’s leadership, Emerge won more than 40 national journalism awards.

D is for Dream. What is your dream?

As a person that grew up in Alabama under segregation I have gone much further then I have ever dreamed of going. In 8th grade I said I wanted to be journalist and now I have been doing it 42 years ever since 1970. My first job was with Sports Illustrated and I could not get a job with my hometown newspaper. I wanted to write books and I have done that so what I want to do most of all is to bring Emerge Magazine back out with an online version.

E is for Encourage. What encourages you?

My mother who never finished High School worked 3 and 4 jobs to take care of me and my younger three sisters. She had a huge heart and was always helping people.  My mother would take an older lady food across the street every day.  She was always willing to share and felt she had an obligation to help others even though we were poor growing up in the housing projects.  She still would go back and help others and this was instilled in us and this is something I try to live up to until this day.  My mother had an impact on me at an important part of my life.

R is for Resource. What resource do you have that makes you stand out or unique?

I read a lot. I have always loved reading. I was a History major at Knoxville College in Tennessee and I love, love reading and even when I’m writing stories people may research 2 to 3 things while I will research up to 20 because you never know what part you are going to use.  I just prepare myself so when I’m on television or anywhere else if I show up I’m going to be prepared. I feel obligated particularly in the situation when I’m the only black person in the room or on television at the time that I have to be smarter than everyone else and better prepared than everyone else. I don’t show up unless I’m prepared.

R is for Ready. When did you know you were ready for what you are doing now?

Something was instilled with me at an early age and I was never told that I wouldn’t be even though there were signs around me that said I couldn’t with white and colored fountain water signs and I had to ride in the back of the bus . I had people around me that told me I could do this and I had excellent teachers. I’m still in touch with my first grade teacher because I wanted to know and I’m grateful for all of the contributions that they have made in my life. I never thought I wasn’t ready. I just knew that they prepared you and like their generation said you had to be twice as good and get half the credit so you don’t complain about it and just go out and be twice as good and move on.

I is for Individual. can you name at least one individual that we should learn more about and why?

W.E.B. Du Bois and he was born February 23rd the same day as me and that is all I needed to know. He was a man that stood up when everyone said Booker T. Washing ton was a great figure and was preaching segregation and I understood where he was coming but still I wanted someone that would  fight and disagree with that and once I found out about WEB Dubois it changed my life.  

William Monroe Trotter in 1901 helped publish the The Boston Guardian. He  did not compromise and take junk from anyone but he used his skills and talents and his newspapers to fight for Black people.

C is for Continue. When things look bleak what makes you want to continue?

When I think about how bad things are now it was worse before.  When I think about all of our ancestors coming over here in shackles and in the deck of slave ships not knowing where they were going to and our people survived all that and they survived lynchings and beatings so whatever we are going through today is minor compared to that and so we have no right to complain considering what are people have gone through.

K is for Keys. What keys to success can you leave for other?

Key to success is to always know that you have to keep studying and improving so that you never get to the point where you can rest on your laurels that you don’t have to work hard anymore. There is always ways to improve and I always look for ways to improve. In order to stay ahead in your game you have to always know that you can get better and strive for that.

Is there anything that we did not touch on that you would like to inspire others with?

A lot of youth use the fact that their father wasn’t home as an excuse not to succeed.  My father wasn’t in my home either. Success stories like W.E.B. Du Bois, Jackie Robinson,  Jesse Jackson,  Al Sharpton  and Barack Obama  didn’t have a Father in their home and they never let it hold them back. When we talk to young males we have to teach them to turn a negative into a positive

DERRICK Interview with Sales Expert Alan Alford

November 30, 2012

Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes gives a DERRICK Interview by asking 7 questions through each letter of his first name to give you an insightful perspective from other experts, entrepreneurs, celebrities and up and coming super stars.

Today’s DERRICK Interview is with Sales Expert Alan Alford who has enjoyed tremendous success for over twenty consecutive years as an insurance agent and retail salesperson. The art of sales is something about which he is extremely passionate about. Alan’s drive and determination have taken him to heights he never dreamed of. Guess what? You have the potential of making the exact same statement!

D is for Dream. What is your dream, goals or what have you achieved?

My dream and goals are to be a motivational speaker and Author of a series of books. I’ve written one sales book so far titled $ell Your Little Heart Out!

E is for Encourage. What encourages you?

Success and challenges always encourage me. Success is the carrot I live to chase. Challenges are the roadblocks that stand in your way. Once you handle adversity and learn how to get around the distractions success is yours!

R is for Resource. What resources do you bring to the table that makes you unique or stand out?

I’m an African American Top Salesperson for over twenty consecutive years. Currently I’m the number one salesperson for one of America’s Top Insurance Companies.  I’ve just written a new sales book called $ell Your Little Heart Out! This puts me in a unique and rare class.

R is for Ready. When did you realize you were ready for what you are doing now?

It was more gradual over time. Once the accolades in sales began to rack up I felt it was time to share the knowledge for others to enjoy.

I is for Individual. Name at least one person that you know that you feel others should learn about and why?

God spoke to me and told me to write $ell Your Little Heart Out! to improve sales abilities worldwide. The second is my wife Nadine Alford. My wife is my toughest critic. She didn’t read my book until it was already published. Once she read the book she adamantly confirmed she loved it and the story NEEDS to be spread for others to enjoy.

C is for Continue. When you fail, things look bleak or are not optimistic what makes you want to continue?

Prayer. Anytime I get to this point, it’s time for me to remind myself God’s on my side. Continue to persevere and don’t quit before the blessing.

K is for Key. What keys to success can you leave for upcoming entrepreneurs and leaders?

Purchase $ell Your Little Heart Out! For business and sales success. You definitely will learn something you’ve never heard before.

Is there anything that we did not touch on that you would like to inspire others with?
