Telling It Like It Is

Honesty Concept

The importance of candor is often downplayed in many parts of our lives. From personal to business relationships, most people are hesitant to be completely open and honest about their opinions. Many times we choose to withhold information, fearing that it will “rock the boat,” so to speak. However, in our efforts to remain inoffensive, we might actually be doing more harm than good.


Sometimes speaking your mind can cause problems. Uncomfortable feelings may be elicited from recipients of an open and honest dialogue. People may get angry, sad, or even confused when faced with a frank assessment of a given situation. Since childhood, it has been ingrained in most of us that the rules for decent behavior require that we hold our tongues and refrain from giving potentially negative feedback. It doesn’t seem to matter how true, helpful, or necessary it may be, we are mainly concerned with protecting other people’s feelings.

In business this can be especially problematic. When we withhold candid feedback in a company setting, we wear away at the fabric of our business. This can affect every part of a company and stifle necessary growth. A few examples might be that budgets might be unrealistic and run unchecked, performance appraisals will be falsely polite, and strategy sessions will be devoid of ideas. The list can go on and on, yet because we are more concerned with making things easier on ourselves, we avoid any conversation that we feel may cause conflict.


For a business to succeed, candor is a vital component. Ideas flourish in an environment where people understand the importance of having an open, honest dialogue. Necessary actions to resolve issues that arise can be taken faster, thus improving efficiency. With that in mind it’s still a hard sell. It is difficult to break old habits, especially in a company where business has been handled in a bureaucratic way for a long period of time. Even so, there are ways to try to change the way communication is handled within a company to encourage frankness.

Even though it is crucial in business to be able to have open and honest dialogue, there are caveats.  People may see you as harsh, and your interpersonal skills may be questioned. It is risky to be candid, so you must decide for yourself if you are willing to take that risk.


Leaders can stimulate candid conversation simply by talking about it. Speaking about candor can encourage employees to be straightforward yet polite, when they speak. Giving praise also helps people understand how important it is to be open and honest when communicating. Another way to motivate others to have an open dialogue is to reward people when they are being candid. We all like to be recognized for our achievements and we tent to repeat behavior that is rewarded. It is also much easier to be candid when you are in a position of power, so a good strategy might be to use leading questions that spur conversation, thus providing a more stimulating work environment.

Why Pay More? Buy Direct from the Manufacturer!

pay less for smartphones

From the manufacturer to the end consumer, a product’s price rises as the middlemen need to get decent profits for their services. When you buy direct from the manufacturer there is no middleman, distributor, dealer or extra markup. This ends up SAVING YOU around 30% to 50%!


Some believe that in order to save a lot of money from manufacturers you must buy an enormous amount of products. That is not the case with Sharn Enterprises Inc. We welcomes both small and large orders. The only thing that we have in common with other manufacturers is that the more you order, the more leverage we have in extending greater savings to you.

Sharn Enterprises Inc., has been in business for over 41 years. We have caring and capable employees who can guide you through the entire process of purchasing displays – from design to finished product, shipped anywhere in the USA.

If you are interested in buying direct from a manufacturer but are unsure where to begin, please contact us at (815) 464-9715, or visit our website at

Positioning Yourself and Your Brand

Marketing Strategy

Marketing Strategy

There are many factors to consider when trying to market your brand. Consumers have a multitude of choices in the marketplace and it’s easy to find yourself lost in the shuffle.  As you aim to make yourself and your brand stand out from the crowd, there are some key ideas to consider that can help bring you and your brand success.

Create a Buzz


Networking is the best way to get people to talk about you. The connections that you make when meeting and interacting with other people are invaluable. If you make a good impression when you network, they will tell other people about you and help to create a buzz. One thing to consider when building your brand is what people think of when they hear about you, or your company. Live your brand, so to speak.



Consider the experience that you create for your customers. Is it unique, or can it be easily found elsewhere? What kind of image do you represent to others? Your brand is who you are, so authenticity is key. Begin by listing your “unique selling points,” in other words, define why you are unique. You have to pinpoint what is different and special about your brand so that you can make a lasting impression.

Write a Positioning Statement


This is a great way to help you think about how you want to be perceived, as you market yourself and your brand. Begin by defining who you are and how you differentiate yourself form others. Outline what unique benefit you provide that is different than anyone else. Another important thing is to always know what your competition is. This is important so that you can explore what you can do to position yourself favorably when being compared to others.

To make sure that you stand out from the crowd ensure that your statement is action oriented and shows the benefit of what you do. It’s also important that you can have a concise version of your positioning statement that can be said in one breath. Think of this as a “elevator pitch,” something that is short, to the point, and on topic. This statement should list the practical benefits of using your brand, and make them want more.

Appearance Counts


Did you know that first impressions are made within the first 30 seconds of meeting someone? Taking this into account, it is easy to see that you must always be prepared to put your best foot forward. Use your image as a tool to market your brand. When networking be enthusiastic, be pleasant, be sincere, and present yourself confidently. Remember that the only person you are competing with is yourself.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

As we celebrate Martin Luther King Day on the 18th of January, we reflect on the achievements of this great civil rights leader. Though this is a relatively new federal holiday, there are a few long standing traditions that are observed on Martin Luther King Day.  Many schools observe the holiday by teaching their students about Martin Luther King and his work to end racial segregation and racism. On this day, volunteerism and community service are encouraged, as we mark the holiday as “a day on, not a day off.”.


Martin Luther King  was a leader in the movement to end racial segregation in the United States. He became the youngest man to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and advocated non-violent protest.


The Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday celebrates the life and legacy of a man who brought hope and healing to America. We commemorate as well the timeless values he taught us through his example — the values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service that so radiantly defined Dr. King’s character and empowered his leadership. On this holiday, we commemorate the universal, unconditional love, forgiveness and nonviolence that empowered his revolutionary spirit.
