I recall the big war against Iraq where the “weapons of mass destruction” and giving “liberty” to the people of Iraq ended up in millions being affected and a country that is left in ruins. I also recall a few other wars where the biggest winner is always among others, the weapons industry. All the so-called negotiators and world leaders that fly all over the place...

The Customer is always right…NOT

T

We often hear “customer is always right”, a term that was coined by Harry Gordon Selfridge, the founder of Selfridge’s department store in London in 1909. But what does it really mean?

Selling a product or service shouldn’t be that hard

S

I recall when I used to live in England and worked as door-to-door salesman for British Gas as my first job before moving up the ladder to being a senior web designer for MSB International, wow what an experience. The sales job required knocking on doors, with a list in my hand of the people I was to talk to. The experience of talking to people you never spoke to before is a strange feeling on...
