Normally these newsletters come out much earlier in the day, but there is a very good reason why this one is late. Today I had the opportunity to speak to a class of future entrepreneurs at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point. I really appreciate it when I have the ability to share my knowledge and experience. The group had plenty of questions and the hour went by way to fast. I think I learned just as much from them as they did from me.

Complete Cellular Service

On February 15th, Wausau joined many local communities in banning the use of cellphones while driving, without the use of a hands-free device.  A patchwork of bans across the state has increased the chance of accidentally using a cellphone illegally.  Rather than take that risk, says Mark Voss Installer at  Complete Cellular Service, you should consider installing a hands-free kit in your vehicle.  The hands-free systems available are often more advanced than those that come factory-installed in new vehicles and are customized to your needs.

If an installed system isn’t what you are looking for, make sure you are getting into the right Bluetooth headset. Corey and Wayne, Technicians at Complete Cellular explain: There is a wide range of wireless headsets out there.  You want to take into consideration:

  • Do you want to listen to music or recorded audio?
  • Will you be using it in a loud environment?
  • Are you outdoors with your device on a regular basis?
  • When using your device are you typically sitting still, like at your desk or in a car; or are moving  around, like at the gym or doing physical labor?
  • Is there a particular ‘look’ you would like or would prefer to avoid?

Rather than waste money buying handsfree options that just don’t work for you, contact the team at Complete Cellular Service.  They would be happy to help find the right option for you.  Visit them at 4403 Stewart Avenue in Wausau or call 715-843-4449. They are open Monday – Friday 8:00am-5:30pm.Complete Cellular Service Wausau. . .

Closing Thoughts

Be sure to Spring Ahead! That’s right, Daylight Saving Time starts this Sunday morning, so you need to turn your clocks ahead one hour. I’m having a hard time accepting that it’s that time of the year already, especially with all the snow on the ground. But maybe with the extended afternoon daylight, we’ll see faster melting and a quicker march towards spring. Here’s to hoping to that at least.
