Ask any successful person and they will tell you how important it is to attend meetings. People don’t schedule and hold meetings for their health. There is a reason for having meetings and you should attend them all as if they were mandatory. I don’t care if it is a sales meeting, a seminar or […]

I want to ask you a very serious question about the interactions and conversations you have on a daily basis.
