This is an effort to communicate with good friends, old customers, partners and colleagues.
This is an open and sincere effort to express my thoughts and feelings and exchange valuable insights about sales that I love and I am dedicated in.
This is nothing but an effort to talk and breath sales.
After all, No Sales…No Business…
