Coffee And Customer Service: 2015 Resolutions

Happy New Year! Don’t miss our first Coffee and Customer Service hangout of the year. It was a good one. In the hangout, we established that were aren’t huge new year’s resolution people but we both agree that if we never have goals, we’ll never achieve them. That being said, hear some of our personal and customer service goals for 2015.

What are your customer service resolutions for this year? We would love to hear them and support you in achieving them. Here’s to a year filled with AWESOMENESS!

P.S. This has to be our best screenshot for a Google+ hangout ever!
