“This great book reminds us how important relationships are to business. It contains excellent examples that explain what to do and how. I bought books for our producers; however, one of our customer service representatives read it and said that everyone in our 50 person office should read it. This book is a must read and can be read in a short amount of time. Well worth it!”

The book provides simple yet effective ways to make business connections and bring new clients in the front door. Outstanding!”

It is also very heartwarming and will undoubtedly inspire you in ways that you don’t expect from a business/sales book. I highly recommend this for anyone or any organizations looking to make a difference in how they and their employees embrace their customers and communities.”
