A couple of my guests were talking back and forth about the level of personal information that they divulge to their business contacts….basically the gist of the conversation was if you are only doing business with the person, how […]

Kudos to Greg for being able to put them into words a lot more eloquently than I could…. Being Real and Getting to know people is the only way to succeed […]
