What you’re reading are comments business owners, entrepreneurs have made about THEIR CUSTOMERS! Yes. You’ve read that right. But you know, the funny thing is that these customers and clients didn’t magically appear from the undergrowth and declare “I’m going to be a client of so and so”. No. The business owner has to have done something to firstly, get the attention of the prospect, and then, say yes, come on in and be part of my world. It’s not by...
