Do you sell software, electronics, printing, tools, training, placement, or any of the other hundreds of purchases made by businesses every day? Do you sell the thing? The benefit? or the feeling?
Does your business want to sell more to beat the competition? to provide more jobs? to make a good life for your kids?
