In the professional services marketplace, little is as valuable as the word of mouth referral. That wonderful moment when the phone rings and the person on the other end says something like “so and so mentioned I should call you”. There really isn’t anything nicer.

The most successful business development person in his/her respective staffing niche will ALWAYS be the one who knows and understands his/her competition. As much as I hate the old saying that there's "A" time and there's "B" time. "A" time for a sales rep consists of the execution of everything you prepared in your "B" time. If that bothers you, you're in the…Continue

We all use email, and we use it all day long. It’s both a great help and a great hinderance. Great for some tasks, massively overused for others. In many ways, it has changed the way that we work, and the speed at which we correspond.
