  • Because there is no way in the world that I can know as much about your business as you do, many of my suggestions and ideas I present will be somewhat generic, which means it is up to YOU to take the ideas I present and figure out how to make them work in your company, in your specific market, with your customers, with your employees. If you will continually ask the three questions above every time I put up a slide, there is a good chance that you will uncover something that will help your business significantly.
