When I entered the ENT specialist office in Metairie, Louisiana a few years ago, one of the most critical questions on my mind was if I would be able to continue to speak effectively with my motivational business after my surgery.
To the small business owner or struggling salesperson: Are you sick and tired of looking at the wall while making phone call after phone call, only to find no prospect wants to talk to you about your offering?
