Amy Hoy’s Sales Safari – In Practice

    Full Disclosure: I’ve never attended any of Amy’s classes, never spoken to her, and my only email response from her was a bit… well… let’s just say, she is her own person, and she didn’t give a rat’s posterior about my tidbit.

Stuck on the Technology

But that causes trouble when it comes time to do side projects. I get excited about working with new things, and have trouble settling on one option!   History Keeps… Read more →
