Let’s Build a Bridge

GG_BRDG1Guest Editorial

As a skip-tracer I have worked for banks, recovery agents, bail agents and everything in between. The single common thread is that they all have in common is they need to find that elusive human being. Commonly during my career I would find that both the bondsman and the recovery agent were looking for the same person, and once they joined forces, networked together and shared information, they were successful dare I say even unstoppable!

Can you imagine the level of information and technology that could be shared between the great men and women of each of these industries if my hypothetical bridge were to become a reality?

Reflections on Harvey Altes – from this grown-up ‘Kid’

haltes2Guest Editorial

I found out this morning that my friend, mentor and Godfather of the Recovery Industry, Harvey Altes, has passed away. I know there has never been anyone who has done more in our beloved industry than Harvey, but it is not just the industry that owes this man a debt. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of those who have been individually graced by the influence of Harvey. They all have their own stories to tell. This one is mine.

Unity and Bigfoot: Fact or Fiction?

bigfootGuest Editorial

A favorite bible verse of mine is Ecclesiastes 4:9-10English Standard Version (ESV)

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!

This humble verse, composed when our ancestors were simply trying to survive the daily brutalities of biblical times, states the obvious in the stark terms of good vs. evil: solidarity = good / standing alone = bad. Terms such as networking and diversity didn’t exist when the writer set his words on parchment; nor did the statistics that could be scrutinized, analyzed, and subjected to blind trials for publication in some egghead textbook in order to prove his theory. Yet here we are today, still subject to the same bare bones truth of this ancient verse. We know that the best results are derived from the cohesive efforts of a group rich in diversity, yet working as one.

The Skip-Tracers Guide to Effective Communication

textingGuest Editorial

           With the growing prevalence of technology and social media such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, many have lost the social skills or the ability to carry on a good conversation. I have seen conversation slipping away in my personal life. My son or daughter will text my wife or me while they are in the next room! Yes, you read that correctly. They will send texts asking what’s for dinner from their rooms rather than getting up and walking 30 feet to ask the question face-to-face.
