Why Business Ethics Are Necessary ?

Before we tend to look for to find out some of the business ethics that business folks ought to embrace, it’s needful to first perceive what the word ‘ethics’ refers to.

Ethics are a set of moral principles that are recognized in respect to a specific class of human actions or a specific group, for instance the medical ethics, legal ethics, teaching ethics that brings along individuals of the same profession.

These principles handle values regarding human conduct with respect to ideas like being sensible or unhealthy, noble or ignoble, wrong or right etc. These values guide members of a group to act in a very manner that’s in keeping with the values and standards as established. Business ethics are those virtues that business individuals apply when making business decisions. They’re the standards expected inside the business world, even if they’re not written down and that business people must adopt. For instance business individuals are expected to afflict least suffering to their customers, being truthful in their dealings and nurturing an everlasting virtuous company character in totality.

Business ethics are important because they keep business individuals to work at intervals a moral and legal pedestal that not only leaves them glad internally but also will increase sales as a result of most people like dealing or doing business with honest businessmen. Conjointly if the public or your potential customers perceive you to be engaging in improper business deals, they can shun you.

Smart business ethics ought to be embraced by all businessmen as a result of partaking in unethical practices, that might include breaking the law, might cause serious fines or lack of trust by members of the public. Some of the business ethics embody the following:

1. Being trustful by recognizing that customer is that the king. Customers want to try and do business with firms they trust and that they perceive to be showing them respect. When a business entity is trusted, it creates a loyal clientele.

2. Business people ought to be ready to satisfy the obligations of their customers and business partners irrespective of anything else. Business individuals should supply their end of the bargain in the slightest degree cost as a result of this is often the sole approach to cement client and business partner’s loyalty.

3. Participating in fair trading practices like guaranteeing a secure workplace for your employees, truthful pricing for your products, that will at least cowl the value of production and treating you customers well among others can guarantee a high business turnover.

4. Each businessman wakes up every day with the intent to form profit. When a business operates inside ethical realms, there can continuously be clear indications for growth. Equally, a business needs to make profit thus as to satisfy its ethical obligations to the company, its workers, the authorities and customers.

5. In essence, being ethical as a business person builds similar to reliability and establishes reputation along with your customers, the 2 things that are terribly important to a business.

Most business individuals do not take a keen interest in implementing business ethics. Most of them suppose that creating profit is the foremost important thing but as they notice later, irrespective of how exhausting they strive, they do not achieve their objectives.

Courier Delivery Services For International Shipping

First there were the pigeons, followed by the runners and then came the postman and now we have the courier delivery. All of them are different forms of transportation of documents as also articles from one place to another, from one person to another. While the pigeons and the runners were restricted to delivery within short distances, this was broken with the postal system and the courier which resorts to International Shipping for delivery of documents and articles.

Trade and business flourished with times, necessitating means for movement of business documents and articles across countries. Technology too advanced with time and this led to better means of transportation, not only of human beings but also of allied services like that of the postal related services. The postal service served the purpose of transporting documents and articles across nations using modern methods of shipping like the airway and the shipping lines. However, there were a few intrinsic drawbacks noticed in this system.

While postal departments were good enough for sending and receiving documents and items in one’s own country, when it came to cross border cases they faced the problem of differing rules and regulations. No two nations ever follow the same or uniform set of rules and regulations and the same is applicable to the government postal services.

A document or article reaching a destination port of another country faced procedural problems on clearance of the document or article. While a simple envelope with applicable stamp affixed may pass easily on to its correct recipient, the same may not hold true when the package contains articles. For business class, especially, such sorts of packages are common place.

Not only is it difficult for the individual parties, both sender and recipient, to settle out these procedural issues for clearing the package, on many an occasion there have been complete loss of the package all together. Not only delay in time but also financial loss was, therefore, accrued by individuals of both parties.

This gave rise to private entrepreneurs entering into this line of business. Courier delivery services, as they are called, sprouted up across nations filling in this gap which existed in the postal services.

Speed, accountability and ability to be tracked were the primary agenda of each courier delivery service providers. Along with that they added security of the package by adding an optional insurance factor of the articles contained within the package.

Being private operators these courier companies set up branches that are linked to each other across the sea and nations. International Shipping of documents and packages took a new turn with their entry into this business. The main office situated in one country had overall control of operations of its branches established in other countries.

Linking of packages sent by one of its branch in a particular country was easy to trace and clear by the agents of the same courier company in the destination country. The trend slowly changed to door to door collection and delivery. The courier company sends agents to the prospective client’s doorstep to collect the package and then ensures delivery at the doorstep of the intended recipient as indicated by the sender.

Courier companies can be seen to perform International Shipping of packages as a service of premium value. Their charges are, therefore accordingly, higher than normal postal delivery charges. For the advantages that are accrued from resorting to courier service for International Shipment of packages, this higher charge can be considered worth commensurate.

Methanol Economy, From the Backstage

A new type of energy use, often are not found in other energy has been “exhausted” in the beginning only. This is a rule, is the History of energy use.Alibaba methanol net offer of such a group: April 18, 2010, the domestic methanol prices, Fuxin 4,000 yuan per ton, 3,500 yuan per ton in Shandong, Jinan, Guangzhou City in Guangdong is only 2,500 yuan per ton. If you read this group of methanol to lay quotations may be read “Double Dutch” indistinguishable, as in China, North and South regions as different things, different levels of economic development, methanol offer vary greatly. Some experts said that, like methanol and other types of energy, the price is follow the market, the price changes, just illustrating the concept of new energy demand is not the same. But the real concern is not the price of methanol, but methanol as a kind of new energy, and its roles. Statistics show that alcohol has a market economy from the “shadow” reached the “front stage.” Methanol economy, has become one of China’s energy economy, more and more beautiful scenery.

From the energy point of view, the history of mankind in the most “hard” period. This is so, is based less and less pressure on fossil fuels, based on human beings have to strive for a sustainable new energy pressure. Is not it, all renewable energy sources including biomass, geothermal energy, have gradually entered the field of vision of human energy consumption, and even some have become alternative energy sources. A few years ago, some experts suggested a new possible approach to more efficient use of existing oil and gas resources, so that the final out of the human dependence on fossil fuels. This method is based on methanol, this methanol is also a “methanol economy” basis. U.S. energy expert George? A? Aura in his “Beyond Oil and Gas Age: methanol economy” in his book, said, methanol is the simplest, safest, easiest to store and transport of liquid hydrocarbons. At present, it is almost always prepared from synthesis gas derived from the synthetic gas from fossil fuels, mainly natural gas or coal incomplete combustion; methanol is also available from other biomass such as municipal sewage in preparation. In addition, the preparation of methanol or dimethyl ether may also be changed from the oxidation of methane.

Therefore, methanol as a new energy, “shadow” has now hidden in the energy family. The current problem is, even though the concept of methanol had been made, but for methanol as a fuel, methanol production for a description of the analysis of the prospects for their development, but also few people do. Summarized the results of expert studies, methanol’s “look” can be outlined as follows: First, methanol is a convenient energy storage medium; Second, it is a convenient transportation and distribution of fuels, including used in methanol fuel cell; again, it is a synthesis of hydrocarbons and their products use raw materials, including polymers and single cell protein. Scientists generally believe that the source of carbon may eventually come from the air, the air everywhere on Earth, but the energy required can be obtained from the corresponding energy.

Therefore, the methanol “clean” and “quality” to make it in the near future to become human “pet.” In recent years, human beings are very concerned about the survival of the environment, concerned about climate change, methanol just be able to protect the environment, maintain climate stability, help. Called “methanol economy,” is through the recycling of excess atmospheric carbon dioxide, to reduce human beings to the adverse effects of the Earth’s climate, which can effectively curb the trend of global warming.Looking forward to “methanol economy” became an important assistant energy economy, do not forget another of the “heroic”, that is ethanol. For most people, the methanol and ethanol no difference, and even that can give up alcohol and enhance the development and use of ethanol. In fact, scientists study concluded that methanol and ethanol, although very similar in chemical composition, the former is a carbon alcohol, the latter two carbon alcohol, both of which derive from the fiber, but now mainly synthetic methanol way to produce. In industry, through the hydrolysis of ethylene to ethanol production; in agriculture, prepared by fermentation from. Using fermentation to produce ethanol, is quite energy consuming. Preparation of methanol because they do not rely on agriculture, thus reducing fossil fuel use. In contrast, not only can not substitute for ethanol, methanol, instead of good properties as methanol, will be humans of all ages.

Global perspective, the development of more and more obvious economic advantages of methanol. Select from the resources point of view, through the existing natural gas to produce methanol oxidation does not require pre generated synthesis gas; from the resource conservation point of view, can be used on industrial emissions of carbon dioxide, “hydrogenated” cycle of production of methanol; from the use of future prospects see, methanol and dimethyl ether as a very convenient transportation fuel, can be used in the development of the next generation battery; from the side chain, using methanol as raw material to produce ethylene and propylene, which extended for the synthesis of hydrocarbons and products guaranteed.Methanol economy is the solution of human energy needs of a new way. Right now, the development of methanol economy has to have some conditions; to the long term perspective, the development of methanol economy has “epoch making” strategic significance. Establishing and Implementing the CAS Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry researchers recently stressed that the economy is the solution of methanol as a future energy strategy and methods. The judge, in the near future will certainly be confirmed.

EU Anti-dumping Cases Related Issues Shoes Analysis

Chinese Ambassador to the World Trade Organization on April 20 formally requested the WTO set up expert groups to investigate and rule EU shoe anti dumping measures taken in violation of international trade rules. Day meeting of the WTO Dispute Settlement Body meeting, the Chinese delegation pointed out that the EU’s shoe anti dumping measures, whether procedural or substantive violation of WTO related agreements at all. The author believes that the EU anti dumping measures on China shoes is the essence of trade protectionism, in violation of World Trade Organization agreements, undermine the international free trade order, not only harm China related industries, but also the interests of the EU member states caused by consumers loss of certain benefits.

First, EU shoe anti dumping cases the basic situation of starting from October 2006, the EU began to impose on Chinese leather goods 16.5% anti dumping duties; Chinese shoe exports to Europe, production has been reduced by 20%, resulting in some of China 20,000 workers lose their jobs. October 2008, at the expiry of anti dumping measures in the occasion of the EU regardless of the interests of consumers and the strong opposition from China, but also initiated a review of the final. The European Union on Dec. 22, 2009, announced the decision to extend production to China and Vietnam have imposed punitive tariffs on footwear period of 15 months. The Chinese government on February 4, 2010 the EU’s shoe anti dumping cases to resort to the WTO, the two sides on the case then launched a 60 day bilateral consultations. The two sides on March 31 in view of the recent round of consultations was held unable to find a mutually satisfactory solution, China on April 20 formally requested WTO dispute settlement body set up expert groups to ensure that China’s legitimate rights and interests are protected. Day meeting, the Chinese side requests the EU expressed “regret”, and in accordance with procedures to prevent the establishment of expert groups. As long as China was held in the next month again at the Dispute Settlement Body request to set up an expert group, the group will automatically set up.

Second, the EU anti dumping measures on China shoes procedures and physical analysis of improper
(A) the nature of international trade protectionism. Extend the EU’s unfair anti dumping measures on China shoes, in essence, the post crisis era and its frequent implementation of trade protectionism, China’s continuing policy inertia ??. Of the EU footwear industry has been going on for 14 years of trade protection, at present there is no damage to the EU footwear industry conditions, to extend anti dumping measures the EU footwear industry would not benefit, only harm the interests of related industries in China and EU consumers. November 19, 2009, at the European Commission anti dumping advisory committee, the representatives of EU member states the majority of the facts from an objective, anti dumping measures against the further extension. But the EU eventually succumb to the pressure of trade protectionism, insisting on Chinese made shoes to extend anti dumping measures, indicating the path of trade protectionism, the more lines farther. Breach of international commitments, the EU openly implement its policy of trade protectionism, the Chinese shoes anti dumping investigations and decisions, in violation of WTO rules related to the detriment of the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises, in fact, both the EU member states punish consumers and can harm the EU’s long term political economic and trade relations with China’s healthy development.

(B) in violation of WTO related rules of procedure. EU Trade Commission in violation of anti dumping investigations trade principle of fairness, the Chinese shoe enterprises ignore the evidence submitted, the program obviously inappropriate. European Court of Justice in the Interpretation of anti dumping law Tiaokuan process, is entirely based on the European Union in December 2009 announced the sunset review of China’s ruling shoes, mainly based on field verification of the case the EU does not comply with WTO related rules of procedure. In the case of the review process, of Chinese partner by the EU Trade Commission of unfair treatment, do not get enough right to justify anti dumping charges, the EU ruling, of course also with departure from the principle of equality seriously. The author believes that the reason why the EU to extend anti dumping measures on China shoes, trade protectionism is one of the important reasons which, on the other hand the EU market economy status and application of standard procedures identified a key reason for the confusion is. In fact, in the review process of investigation, exporters, importers, exporters and representatives of the Community producers on the issues raised in the review set, the right of rebuttal or comment by undue restrictions, the Chinese enterprises, relevant enterprises and consumers in the EU interest demands have not been given due attention.The European Union’s decision procedure in another member of its decision not to discuss, simply by a “rubber stamp” approach by not only being a member of the opposition half, has also been related to the European mainland enterprises in China protest . The fundamental reason lies in its decision process is neither fair nor transparent, a serious violation of the WTO principle of fair and transparent.

(C) in violation of WTO rules related entities. According to WTO “Anti Dumping Agreement” requirement, the minimum dumping constitutes a large, serious harm to the domestic industry, dumping and injury, causal relationship between. The EU’s shoe anti dumping measures, in fact, did not have these conditions. Substantial evidence that the fact that there is no dumping, dumping damage is nonsense; there is no reasonable evidence that, within the meaning of the number of dumped imports and the price level and the Community industry within the meaning of the damage to the causal link. China’s Ministry of Commerce, Bureau of Fair Trade related person in charge pointed out that China’s shoe exports up to thousands of companies, mostly private or foreign, in this highly competitive market, companies can not sell below cost product to make their own losses, companies are not granted by the Government from any subsidies. Currently, the European Union good indicators related industries, strong exports, indicating European industry is competitive, there was no need for protection. European industry in global supply chain, and gradually move towards high end market, their products do not directly compete with Chinese products, to continue the anti dumping on China without any solid grounds. In addition, the public interest standard to judge, can not prove the legitimacy of its anti dumping measures and legitimacy.The intervention of the authorities in determining whether the Community interest, it should be all the different interests of the evaluation as a whole. However, the fact that a large number of EU decisions and not take into account the relevant industry organizations, business interests and demands of consumers. Therefore, the anti dumping measures taken since it is not out of the Community interest, there is no justification for anti dumping measures, naturally, against the public interest criteria for judging.

Third, should the laws of EU anti dumping policy
(A) full use of EU legal relief channels. First to make full use of EU law relief channels. “EU Treaty” Article 173 provides: impose anti dumping duties with the parties directly concerned to the European courts for review of the effectiveness of anti dumping order. Chinese shoes enterprises should initiate proceedings to start judicial review, and asked the European court to review the entire case. Recommendations from the European Commission ruled in China related companies and entities in the process perspective of problems in the complaint, pay special attention to defense from a public interest standard. EU anti dumping law clearly required in the implementation of any anti dumping measures should be carried out before the investigating authorities examine the public interest, which is anti dumping duties is a necessary condition. In general, a country in the implementation of anti dumping measures, the most direct loss of public interest is the loss of importers and end users. Therefore, Chinese enterprises should strengthen and importers and end users of multilateral cooperation, to use their native strengths, enhance the overall defense capability in responding.

(B) actively use the WTO dispute settlement mechanism. China should actively make use of WTO dispute settlement mechanism. In view of the EU anti dumping legislation and enforcement measures were not strictly abide by WTO rules, China certainly has the right within the framework of the WTO dispute settlement legislation and this appeal against the ruling. The Chinese government was February 4, 2010 the EU’s shoe anti dumping cases to resort to the WTO; and on April 20 formally requested the WTO to set up expert. The author believes that the focus of our government the next step should be defined as: active use of WTO dispute settlement mechanism, the defense presented evidence of strong reasons to protect the legitimate rights and interests of China’s shoe industry.

(C) strengthen the EU negotiations between the political and economic fields. Recovery process in the global economy, countries in particular to avoid the abuse of trade protection measures, should be sought through dialogue and cooperation and mutual benefit and win win solution. In addition to legal channels, the Chinese government should continue to strengthen bilateral negotiations with the EU side to properly resolve the trade disputes. Negotiations led by the EU’s emphasis on the concerns of China, in good faith to resolve trade disputes, the early resumption of shoes free trade. At present, the EU members for the restoration of normal trade of footwear products relatively strong desire; therefore urge the EU negotiations are expected to respect the facts, listen to public opinion, to immediately stop the anti dumping measures on China shoes.Other hand, China should join other anti dumping victim of the EU improper, not to impose anti dumping measures and objective international political and economic pressure, prompted the EU to give up as soon as possible the discriminatory anti dumping policy towards China.

(D) make good use of China’s anti dumping, countervailing and safeguard measures. International trade protectionism and free trade offsetting the other, to some extent also the international political and economic course of the game between the force of law. Therefore, China should further improve our anti dumping, countervailing and safeguard measures in the legal system and revise the related laws and formulation. Implementing the Anti dumping and countervailing regulations, handle cases with efforts to improve the quality of case handling, better protection of domestic industry. In order to fully play to the anti dumping, countervailing role of legal means, for the domestic industry has made application, allegation of dumping, the domestic industry showed clear signs of the products Sun Hai, be sure to Guiding the time the law placed on file within the Jishi. Further speed up the investigation and adjudication of cases the progress made so that the dumped imports and the domestic industry suffered injury in time be protected by law. Improve the investigation and adjudication of rules, norms handling procedures, adhere to the principle of fair and equitable handling of cases, improve the industrial damage investigation and adjudication of the quality and level. Improve the industrial injury early warning mechanism, analysis, and import and export situation of international competition, the impact on the national economy, judging the industrial safety and scientific index system damage; timely forecasting and warning, to ensure sustained and stable development of related industries.

In summary, the world’s economic development should be oriented towards free trade and trade liberalization, particularly in the context of the financial crisis, any protectionist measures would be on the world economy is recovering and obstacles, should be get rid of. The relevant Chinese government departments, industries and companies, to clearly understand the situation, positive response, strengthen coordination, master the rules of the World Trade Organization, proficient in related domestic trade laws, dare to take up legal arms, protect the state’s overall interests, to protect the security of domestic industries, safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of enterprises.

A house cleaning business is a great way to own your own company with very little start-up capital. But because it is a great type of business, there may be many other house cleaning services that you will be competing with in your area. So how can you ensure that your business stands out?

There are a few ways to give your business and your business image a boost and to stand out from the crowd. Check out these ideas and see if it may be easy to implement a few of them with your business.

If your cleaning business specializes in a specific demographic, then you can find ways to market to that demographic – making your marketing more focused and effective. For instance, if you are really skilled at taking care of homes that have pets, then your specific target market could be pet owners. You can create specific flyers that showcase your amazing pet hair removal skills and that you are also a pet owner and can understand the special needs of homes with pets. Instead of posting your flyers all over town, you can post them at local pet stores and pet grooming shops.

If you are in business, then let others know! Nowadays a lot of business owners are using their vehicle to advertise their services. A simple magnetic car sign with your information can be a great way and cost effective way to advertise. In addition, promotional items aren’t just for corporations! Consider getting pens, magnets, a duster, or other useful items printed with your company information.

It has been said over and over that a new customer costs more the attain than a current customer costs to keep happy. So if you are new or are looking for new clients, then you may need to eat some costs to get going! Offer a free cleaning of one room for new customers, or two cleanings for the price of one.

If you are thinking about ways to brand yourself, then you should consider creating something that your clients will notice. A uniform is a great way to distinguish yourself from other cleaning services. Your clients will notice and your clients’ neighbors will notice. A uniform should clearly show your business name and a logo or icon that shows you are in the house cleaning services industry. Your company vehicle can even be given magnetic advertisements to match, just like Molly Maids!

Internet Networking

The golden key to building your network marketing team is developing relationships. This is vital to building and increasing the trust factor between you and your potential team members. Networking and relationships go hand in hand, even online.

So then, the question that lingers is “How do I increase interaction to develop those relationships?” It’s a two step process: educate yourself, then educate others.
As a network marketer, you are constantly developing new skills, gaining more knowledge, and educating yourself through courses, e-books, webinars, etc.

The Internet is also very easy and convenient to use. This is unlike ways of promoting network marketing businesses offline, which is cumbersome because advertising is sometimes very expensive. Individual advertising is too expensive unlike the case of bigger organisations which makes large profits. Therefore, online option would be your best choice as you obtain results of your business in a very easier way.

Another paramount advantage of Internet network marketing opportunities is that there is no need to travel all around; you just do everything at home so long as there is a computer within your hands. You can set aside some little time everyday to do promotions and still realise positive results to your business in the long run.

Also, with the use of Internet you can meet and target a particular group of people within your market. This will avoid much competition on your way and thereby enabling you to strategize and offer a solution to any issue arising from these groups.

A network marketing list can easily be built online. Begin by promoting valuable content and educating someone others in your niche. As traffic arrives at your site, it is important to have a capture page with an opt-in form to gather your visitor’s information when it is left. Finally, use an e-mail service to build a relationship with your list.

Building a network marketing team can be very prosperous for you. Focus on educating yourself, then educating others. This intern produces interactions to help build relationships. Lastly, interview and qualify prospects to see if they can be a contributing member to your team with proper training.
Building a network marketing team can be a challenging task. The challenge is building a team that is committed for the long term. It is foolish to believe you will retain 100% of your team. For whatever reason, you will more than likely have team members that move on. As Jim Rohn puts it, “That’s just the way it is.” However, there are some key points that can assist in retaining a high percentage of team members.

Why Social Networking Your Way Won’t Build Your Business

Believe it or not, social networking isn’t the next best thing… You are! It’s the personal connection that still seals the deal.

The Internet, social networking, and other breakthroughs in technology have fundamentally changed the way we do business. New technology drives communications, messaging, and information access at warp speed, and our clients expect immediate access. This pattern of ever-increasing speed and sophistication not only creates an intensely competitive marketplace, but places further demands on us to act and react quickly.

The rise of social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, and LinkedIn have lured many sales pros into scaling back their personal interactions and relying on social media to get more “qualified leads.”

It’s time to get real!

Social Media Is a Powerful Tool for Three Things and Three Things Only

1. Search engine optimization: Use your key words and raise your presence on the web.

2. Find out who people are: Learn about a person’s background and your connections.

3. Find out who people know: Look for close connections that you can leverage

Some salespeople tell me they actually get clients through social media. Well, maybe if you have a commodity business.

Could it happen?

Yes.

Do I rely on it?

Absolutely not! I only count on what I bring about-through a proactive, intentional, referral strategy with personal introductions.

Why Social Networking Your Way Won’t Bring You More Leads and Sales

The most important business decisions are still based on personal relationships. There is significant research about why customers make buying decisions. Bottom line: It’s because they like and trust the salesperson and his organization. Think about it. We’re selling services, investments, systems, products… we’re asking for people’s time and money! Why would they work with someone who hasn’t been referred?

There’s a saying in sales: Clients buy with emotion and justify with fact. If our clients don’t like us or don’t feel comfortable with us, they won’t buy from us. You can wow your clients with technology know-how now and try to win them over later, once they find out you’re honest and reliable. But the reality is you need people to start liking you within the first few seconds of your relationship. You need to start off on the right foot. Fancy gizmos won’t make that happen. But a trusted referral and a personal connection will.

That’s why Eric Schmidt, Chairman and CEO of Google, in his commencement address to the graduating class of the University of Pennsylvania in May 2009, urged college graduates to step away from the virtual world and make human connections. “Turn off your computer. You’re actually going to have to turn off your phone and discover all that is human around us.”

That said, a social media presence is a must-have in today’s world-but you need to change the way you’re social networking.

3 Ways to Get More Leads and Sales with Social Networking and Referral Marketing

1. Develop a social media strategy: Like a sales plan or a marketing plan, write your social media plan. What is your goal? Who is your audience? What do you want to communicate? Leverage social media as part of your go-to-market strategy. How does your strategy link to your customer’s needs and your business priorities?

2. Establish relationships: Take the time to build your personal connections, pick up the phone and talk to people. Just because you have a name in hand, doesn’t mean you have a relationship.

3. Communicate useful information: Social sites are not for selling. They are for establishing connections, identifying ways to collaborate, and providing value. What tips can you provide? Link to other sites you strongly recommend. Get recognized as the expert and build your web presence. Be a resource.

To Trust You Paves the Way

The most energizing and exciting part of our work is the relationships with our clients-the interaction. We enjoy learning about our client’s business and matching our solutions to their needs. In an era dominated by ever-expanding technology and social media pressures, always remember that personal connections, referrals, and earning trust count most.
