The Spirit of Giving
Which do you think would garnish you more appointments;
asking your client if you could come by talk to them about a new product
or asking them if you could stop by and educate them on a new trend that
directly affects their business?

mean that every time you do you have to be pushing your products or services.

having to find new prospects. In short, you will be wasting your time and doing
no one a favor by letting greed run your agenda.

News how to find the road to success.
