I know this might seem like a strange one especially if you have no idea who Igor Ansoff is. Let me explain more. I am lucky enough to be doing a job I love and getting paid for it. What is even better is I get asked to train people on marketing and sales. A couple of weeks ago I was running two days’ training on marketing aligned to business growth.

Having to tell my son, Ben, his dog had to be euthanized this past Tuesday is now on my top ten list of life’s crappy moments.

As a Dad, I want to shield Ben from these hurts in life. But I can’t, which really pisses me off at times! So I did the next best… Continue

Earlier this week, a salesperson told me about a difficult conversation she was about to have with a client.
