The vendor on-boarding experience

While this quite possibly could be a wild theory, my gut says there are several companies across the globe that pay attention to the ‘vendor on-boarding’ experience. What’s that?

Love selling, but love building relationships more

So I shared yesterday’s post with a bunch of friends (just for kicks, not validation of course!). And one of my coach friends shot back stating “I sense a strong aversion to selling or being judged. Is that the case?” Ouch! Of course, not! I love to sell! Not in a crazy way but the […]
