Vinyl Windows, Vinyl Siding, Patio Covers, Tex-Coat, Sacramento, Roseville

Solar, Wind, Bio, Energy News And Commentary By_Green Earl, 30 year Pioneer In Conservation & Solar Energy

You know, it's real funny...(Sorry this and the post
below are the commentary part of this blog) it allows
me to vent a little, or a whole bunch, when the situation

It amazes me the difference there can be between two
companies, involved in similar industries, and how
different they can operate and treat their people and
their customers.

This has all come about due to the fact, I felt it
was time and I was ready to get back into the sales
and marketing game, in a metro area, really is where
the action is.

My home is in Redding, I have two homes now,
one here in Sacramento, (Rancho Cordova) and the one
in Redding. But, there in Redding, the size of the
population and more rural area does not lend itself
to the amount of business one needs to really
straighten out ones life...financially.

For a couple of years, I was down, surgeries and
rehab and I told my wife we needed a change. I love
doing this blog, and other duties including working
on finance packages for renewable energy, but
investment in two deals, of a couple of months of
work each, just did not pan out. One was a $40
million dollar project to set up a factory to make
a cutting edge, we all thought, solar generator, the
other being a renewable energy, rehab project on 5
shopping centers in St. Louis, Mo. and a possible
purchase of same.

For reasons I will not go into here, both projects
required large investments of time and in one case
money, and the end result was no real product to
fund or a big glitch that made the other project
not viable. So, I was forced to make a move and a
big lifestyle change, which now that it's done, has
not really been that bad.

It all started when I see a Craig's list ad, that
says, earn $250 to $300K a year selling windows and
siding in Sacramento area.

Since I have sold a couple of mil in vinyl windows,
I say to myself, I can do that, and that would just
solve some pressing challenges in my life right now.

So, I call the number in the ad and I get a hold of
what has to be the nicest sale manager I guy will
ever meet. His name is Richard Arnett and his card
list him as the Sales, Marketing and Finance Manager
for a Sacramento Company named Vinyl Designs, Inc.
License Number CA 677226 located in a upscale
industrial park at 5433 Stationers Way in Sac, CA.
95842. (On the border of Roseville) so you can
avoid them.

As it turned out, my wife and I had a doctor
appointment in the area and I thought what the heck,
I'll just stop by and have a visit with Richard and
see what comes of it.

Now, Richard Arnett is a sales manager dream come
true. He is the kinda of guy you'd walk thru fire
for. We start talking and hit it right off and we're
talking about home improvement sales guys we both
know, going back nearly 30 years in some cases...

We talk story for a bit and I just feel I'd love to
work for the man, so he sets it all up. Gives me a
a couple of days of training and before I know it
my old Ford Crown Vic is running up and down I-50
towards Tahoe and I-80 towards Reno and back and
forth running vinyl window and door leads, siding,
patio covers, and Tex-Coat. In the next 10 days, I
bid no less than $150,000 dollars in business, write
nearly $40,000 and close about $25,000 the last 7
days, 4 deals, all cash, with deposits. One $8K
dollar deal in Vallejo, that no other sales person
would run, I'm told they have 8 others, kicks before
I can even get the contract back to Rich. The people
need the windows, and their house is hot, during the
presentation, but they are from another country and
time and they are used to it. The idea of parting
with $8,000 when the money could be used for travel
and other retirement needs I understand, still the
dang house needed the windows and all the neighbors
had upgraded, we actually walked outside and looked
at the windows, grids, bays and other improvements
the neighbors had made. Anyway that deal cancels
the next morning...and I just think, "This is not
going to be quite as easy as I first thought." My
commission on such a deal is around 10% as this is
a phone room lead and called a "house deal". Self
generated leads are paid at a higher rate and they're
is a Gotcha built-in to the program, if there is a
fair or a show involved when you get the lead.

Anyway, cancellations happen, even more so now, if
money being so important to most people, Including
me, I might add.

But that happens, this is the business we are in and
money is tight, people, even people that actually
have it, are slow to part with it. Even when they
owe it to you, as we'll cover soon...Don't forget
to drop down and read the post to the owner of Vinyl
Designs, Inc (below). Since removed out of respect
and at the request of Richard at Vinyl Designs, Inc.
Guess he was having a little trouble justifying to
the other troops, the Stupid move the owner made
regarding me.

I no longer work there and I think it's important
that the entire world, including any new sales people
that might come, know why.

And it's important to potential customers that you
know the type of business man the contractor, Steve
and his wife Leslie are. Because the way the treat
the people that work for them, you better believe
will be a factor and a forecast in how you might
be treated as a customer.

Now, for the record, Richard swears the owner is
a straight shooter and "never cheats anyone as
they leave" this is a comment I now question as
I question Rich's judgment making it, as I feel
real "Cheated" right now as I write this post.

They will be amazed at the respect this blog has in
the Google Search Engines and how often this article
and my comments on their questionable, unethical and
dishonest behavior, come up in searches of people
looking into Vinyl Window and siding products and
researching the companies that market them...

....MORE SOON...

(Note) this blog is really a hobby, and since I have
taken a new position, I have reading and studying to
do, I cannot spend the time I would like addressing the
Vinyl Design, Inc company, but come back and I'll be
able to tell you more soon, anyway.

Attention: Green Earl:

Progressive Change Campaign Committee

Petition to President Obama:

"We worked so hard for real change. President Obama, please demand a strong public health insurance option in your speech to Congress. Letting the insurance companies win would not be change we can believe in."

Will you sign this petition?


We didn't plan to email you again today. But yesterday, news broke that President Obama will make a big speech to Congress next Wednesday on health care -- an issue we know you care about.

And according to news reports, "although House leaders have said their members will demand the inclusion of a public insurance option, Obama has no plans to insist on it himself." *

In response, we got a truly depressing email from Christian S. in Texas:

"Your recent health care ads are great, they hit home. But Obama has decided to drop the public option and for breaking his campaign promise I am dropping out of political activism for the time being."

This fight is absolutely not over, but Christian's feelings are real. If Obama doesn't stand firm on the public option, millions of people will lose hope.

So today, we're launching a petition to President Obama signed by those who volunteered, staffed, voted for, or donated to Obama's campaign in 2008, asking him to please stand firm on the public option.

If that's you, can you sign this petition today? Click here.

Then, please think hard about others you know who worked for change last year -- and forward them this email.

The petition says: "We worked so hard for real change. President Obama, please demand a strong public health insurance option in your speech to Congress. Letting the insurance companies win would not be change we can believe in."

We'll make sure the White House gets our message. In addition to delivering the signatures and personal notes from the petition page, we're planning an ad featuring the voices of those who sign.

Obama's speech "is still being debated in the West Wing." * That means there's still time -- we have one week to persuade Obama to do the right thing.

Can you sign this petition to President Obama today? Click here.

Then, please forward this to others. Again, we have until Wednesday, September 9. Thanks for being a bold progressive.

Dear Green Earl,

Fighting to protect our environment and reduce our carbon footprint is critically important. All sectors of our economy have to play a role. Including insurance.

That's why today I introduced the California Green Insurance Act of 2010. This landmark legislation establishes environmental standards and protections in the insurance business, calls for insurers to offer "green insurance," and encourages insurers to make green investments.

Reducing global warming, conserving natural resources, and protecting the environment are the responsibility of everyone, including insurance companies. My California Green Insurance Act asks the insurance industry to do its part to protect the environment and to help policy holders and consumers choose green alternatives.

The California Green Insurance Act establishes "Green Insurance" provisions regarding automobile insurance, property insurance, workers compensation insurance, and insurance company investments, as well as industry-wide mitigation provisions. Examples of Green Insurance include: insurance policies that allow homeowners whose homes are damaged to replace them with greener materials and systems (like solar water heaters and solar panels), commercial insurance policies that encourage and take into account the benefits of LEED certified buildings

, and auto insurance that encourages and takes into account reduced vehicle-miles traveled

. These are but a few examples of ways that insurance can encourage consumers and businesses to undertake and to reflect the benefits of greener practices.

The Act creates a framework for the California insurance industry to lead the way in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, conserving natural resources, and advancing the availability and use of renewable energy. Additionally, it will result in a healthier workforce, which means less missed workdays and substantial cost savings for employers.

I hope you will join me in supporting the passage of the California Green Insurance Act of 2010. Please take a moment right now to sign this online petition to show your support

We owe it to our children and future generations to leave the world a better place. And there is no question that insurance can and should play a role

Assembly Member, 9th District
Candidate for Statewide Insurance Commissioner


Dear Green Earl,

Our Senators are getting back to work in Washington next week, and they've just announced that they'll be introducing their version of a clean energy and climate bill before the end of the month.

That means there's still a narrow window of time to make sure they get it right.

Tens of thousands of folks like you have already sent letters to their Senators asking them to seize this opportunity.

In fact, we're only 30,000 letters away from reaching 100,000 -- that's a lot of people sending their voices directly into the halls of Washington. That's a powerful message.

Will you send a letter of support now, and help us reach 100,000?


A strong clean energy and climate bill means millions of new American jobs, greater energy independence, and a healthier planet.

It's common sense to us. But clean energy is a threat to the oil and coal industry lobbyists, who are paid to by the special interests who make America less secure and more dependent on foreign oil.

Overcoming their effort, and making sure our Senators keep our country moving forward, is going to take a strong statement that can only come from thousands of Americans, speaking together.

100,000 letters from people like you and me telling our Senators that we think strong clean energy and climate legislation is the right choice for America cannot be ignored.

Please voice your support. Send your message today and help reach our goal of 100,000 letters to Senators:
